Ten pounds 1954 to 1966 - Price guide and values

The death of King George VI belatedly led to the introduction of new designs for the ten pound note. Commander of the First Fleet and first Governor of New South Wales, Captain Arthur Phillip, features on the front of the new note and a theme of Industry and Science appears on the back, together with a woman modelled by Karina Nartiss.

Approximately 61,151,000 ten pound notes were produced between 1954 and 1966 with the only changes being in signatory H. C. Coombs' title when responsibility for issuing notes was transferred from the Commonwealth Bank to the Reserve Bank of Australia.

Specimen notes, issued to officials and banks for training and documentation purposes, command a premium.
