Super Selection of Australian Banknotes available now at Downies’ Melbourne Store!

Downies' Melbourne Southgate Store has a great selection of Australian banknotes in store now! The selection includes predecimal, decimal, paper and polymer, complimented with a few rare and desirable star banknotes.

One of the many highlights of the store's current banknote stock is a 1927 £1 Kell/Heathershaw Banknote. This was an extremely short-lived issue - notes of this issue were only printed only from February 1927 to January 1928! One pound banknotes had an average lifespan of only a year in circulation, making this pre-Great Depression banknote scarce. The banknote featured below is in Very Good to about Fine grade and priced at $795. Only one is available.

This 1927 Kell-Heathershaw one pound bank note is in Very Good to about Fine quality.
