Bank of Victoria Limited - Banknotes

The Bank of Victoria Limited, initially founded by Dr Thomas Black, a physician from the Richmond area in Melbourne, commenced business in October, 1852. With some reconstruction, the bank survived the difficult period of the 1890's and amalgamated with the Commercial Banking Company of Sydney Limited in 1927 and subsequently with the National Bank of Australia in 1981, now an integral part of the National Australia Banking Group Limited.

Banknotes were issued at branches in Geelong and Melbourne. The company's records have not survived intact. While not confirmed, it is thought that a different banknote type was used in the period between 1870 and 1880.

In 1911, the bank was one of 16 banks who supplied blank note forms to the Australian Government. These notes were superscribed as redeemable in gold and issued as the first Commonwealth notes.
