Bathurst Bank - Banknotes

The Bathurst Bank was established by a group of local pastoralists in Bathurst in 1835. The company was highly profitable in its early years, as evidenced by yearly shareholder dividend payments of 34¾% and 20%. Competition soon reduced this profitability leading to a take-over by the Union Bank of Australia Limited in 1840, now a part of the Australia and New Zealand Banking Group Limited.

Reproductions of the Pound note, stamped 'CANCELLED' exist.
