A great portfolio note as the first and last prefixes from this series really are getting scarcer all the time as smart investors put them away.

History

The folder notes became available on 8th July, 1988

Harry Williamson, assisted by RBA staff worked to design this note. The reverse, the signature and legal tender side which was also known as the “Supply” side has the settlement theme incorporated in its design. HMS Supply was one of eleven ships, to become known as the “First Fleet,”. They sailed from Portsmouth, England, on 13th May, 1787. The fleet arrived in Botany Bay on 20 January, 1788.

On the left is a representation of Sydney Cove. This image is based on an engraving made by Edward Dayes of a sketch by John Hunter and was first published in 1793. Hunter was a senior officer in the First Fleet and later became the second Governor of the colony of New South Wales. His name is closely associated with Newcastle, the “Hunter Region” where these notes were field tested in 1989.
