What a fabulous example of this series. The third last run of $5 paper banknotes from 1985.

The 3rd last series of $5 paper notes from Australia had two types. Those with Gothic serials and those with OCRB.

Both are highly collectible with the Gothic serials being somewhat more special.

This note is pristine and will make a fine addition to your collection.

Approx. Grade


OCRB is Optical Character Recognition (also known as Optical Code Readable B), with the B being the second font – an advancement on the A font. It was introduced on banknotes because it could be read by machines and computer software, allowing for the sorting/colation of notes to be automated.

The gothic font is the narrower type of font – in both the letters and numerals. It is narrower, and the overall width of the serial number is not as wide as the OCRB.
