The paper five dollar note was issued on 29th May 1967 just over a year after the changeover to decimal currency on 14 February 1966. This was because it had no exact equivalent pre-decimal note so it was held back so as not to confuse the public. The paper note was continued until July 1992, then in 1993 the Aussie five dollar note was completely redesigned and issued as a polymer note, with Australia no longer issuing any paper banknotes. There are 9 signature combinations of the Governor of the Reserve Bank of Australia and the Secretary to the Treasurer on the paper five dollar note.
