Notes :
Following the discovery of forgeries of the first Commonwealth of Australia five pound notes in 1914, steps were taken to modify the design. A mosaic of 5’s was added to the reverse of the note and the horizontal red and yellow bands prominent on the first design were replaced by a vertical phasing from purple through to yellow and back again.
