One of the most symbolic banknotes of Australia’s first national currency system (1910-66), the 1936 R11 Riddle/Sheehan Ten Shillings Banknote was the very last Ten Shillings to carry the portrait of King George V.

An important reminder of a very different Australia, as the nation lurched from the economic turmoil of the Great Depression towards the trauma and fear of the Second World War, this key 1930s banknote type is scarce in all grades.

In large part, the scarcity is due to the fact that the Ten Shillings – or Ten Bob, as it was known – was Australia’s lowest denomination note. The Ten Shillings naturally endured a much greater circulation rate than high denomination notes, and was therefore withdrawn and destroyed after approximately 12 to 15 months.

With the passage of time also ensuring that all King George V banknotes are scarce, regardless of the condition, the chance to secure the 1936 R11 Riddle/Sheehan Ten Shillings Banknote in highly collectable Very Fine condition must not be missed. Click add to cart now!
