A seldom seen opportunity to secure one of Australia’s earliest, rarest banknotes, we are proud to present the National Bank £1 Collins/Allen Melbourne Superscribed Note.

Private banks issued notes from 1817 to 1910, when the Commonwealth took control of all currency issues. The design, production and issue of our first national notes took nearly three years, so, as an interim measure, the Commonwealth purchased and overprinted private notes to affirm their status as official national legal tender. Known as ‘superscribed’ notes, these pre-WWI issues were replaced from 1913, and tiny numbers exist today.

Representing the dawn of Australia’s national currency history, we have the immensely rare National Bank £1 Collins/Allen Melbourne Superscribed Note in good Fine.
