Australian 10 Dollar Note

Australian 10 Dollar Note

The Australian ten dollar banknote was issued when the currency was changed from the Australian pound to the Australian dollar on 14 February 1966; it replaced the £5 note which had the same blue colouration. There have been three different issues of this denomination, a paper banknote, a commemorative 1988 polymer note to celebrate the bicentennial of Australian settlement (the first polymer banknote of its kind), and from 1993 a polymer banknote.

According to Reserve Bank of Australia statistics, in 2006/2007 there were 89.4 million $10 notes in circulation, with a net value of $894 million. This was 2.2% of the cash value of all notes in circulation, and 9.9% of the number of all notes in circulation.

Since the start of issue of $10 notes, there have been eleven signature combinations, of which the 1967 issue is the most valued. It was issued for one year only, along with the Coombs/Wilson issue of 1966.
