Five pounds 1924 to 1933 - Price guide and values

This note, designed and printed by Thomas S. Harrison, is longer and narrower than earlier issues. It was introduced to improve production efficiency by allowing 6 notes instead of 4 to be printed on each sheet. The reverse design of the Hawkesbury River was retained and additional security features were added. A basketweave watermark was used around the borders and the denomination appears in watermarks in the center of the note.

Approximately 11,290,400 five pound notes were printed between 1924 and 1927 with James Kell's signature, firstly as Chairman, Note Issue Department, and changing to Governor of the Commonwealth Bank in 1927. The Kell/Collins signature combination was printed in both black and dark blue. Examination by holding the note up to light may be necessary to determine the colour used on a particular note.
