Bank Note 1976 Australian $1
The Australian paper 1 dollar note was issued between 14 February 1966 and May 1984. A dollar coin was then introduced because of the short lifespan of the paper banknote. This proved a major cost saving for the Government.
The one dollar note is a dark brown coloured note with Aboriginal bark paintings on one side and Queen Elizabeth II and the Australian Coat of Arms on the other. It reads “COMMONWEALTH OF AUSTRALIA” on earlier issues (1966-1974). In 1974 this was replaced by “AUSTRALIA” on both sides of the note. Each note includes two signatures and a unique serial number. The brown colour was chosen as it was the same tones used in the 10 shilling pre-decimal note it replaced.
