The final George VI banknotes!

He had never expected to be king, but George VI proved the perfect leader of Britain and its Empire during WWII. His tireless efforts played a key role in the defeat of the Axis Powers, but the strain of the war no doubt contributed to his untimely demise in 1952 at the age of just 56. Issued from the death of the king to the release of the first notes of Elizabeth II, the last George VI notes are a must-have for the serious collector.

The last George VI notes were issued in the earliest days of Australia’s most enduring banknote signature combination – Coombs/Wilson. Issued for approximately two years, the short-lived George VI Coombs/Wilson notes were printed in tiny numbers. Indeed, the 10/- and £1 had the lowest print-runs of any George VI signature combination, with only the super-rare Sheehan/McFarlane £5 issued in lower numbers than the Coombs / Wilson £5!

As a consequence, the last George VI notes are very rare in superior quality, as presented here. Comprising the 10/-, £1 and £5 – with the £10 virtually never seen on the market in this quality – the set of three is graded about Unc to Unc.
