Australian Pre-Decimal Banknote Values

Pre-Decimal

What is an Australian predecimal banknote worth?

Values, specifications, and images for Australian pre decimal banknotes

from 1910 to 1966.

Prior to this, Australian coins and notes were a collection of currencies from around

the world, however by this point were primarily British.


Most circulating banknotes in Australia prior to federation were in the form of promisory

notes, issued by local and regional banks, promising to pay the bearer the notes value in

sterling upon demand.   Further detail

The Australian pre-decimal era refers to

the period between 1901 and 1965,

however for the purposes of Australian

currency effectively relate to banknotes

printed between 1910 and 1966.

(ie. between federation and decimilisation).


The six British colonies in Australia were

declared an independant nation in 1901,

(federation), 'The Commonwealth of Australia',

although remained part of the British Empire,

as a Constitutional Monarchy.

The Australian pre-decimal period spanned

the reign of 5 monarchs:


King Edward VII in 1910 (no notes printed)

King George V from 1911 to 1936.

 King Edward VIII in 1936

King George VI from 1937 to 1952

Queen Elizabeth II from 1953 to 1966


Pre-decimal banknote manufacturing was

discontinued from 1966, prior to Australia's

conversion to decimal currency: 'Decimilisation'.


Early Australian banknotes were very low

mintage, due to their relative value and the low demand for circulating currency, Australia

having a relatively small population.
