Australia’s first $1 was issued in February 1966. Carrying Australia’s first decimal signature combination, Coombs/Wilson, the first notes also carried the First Prefix, AAA. Naturally popular as the ‘first of their kind’, the 1966 $1 Coombs/Wilson AAA First Prefix notes are also sought after for their rarity in superior quality.
The interest in First & Last Prefix issues is a relatively recent phenomenon, and the 1966 AAA $1 notes were rarely set aside at the time of issue. As a result, they are seldom seen on the market, regardless of the condition. They are rare in the upper echelons of quality, and almost never offered as a consecutive pair – as here.
A wonderful opportunity, we have a single Consecutive Pair of the 1966 $1 Coombs/Wilson AAA First Prefix available – in virtually Uncirculated condition!
