Issued just 26 years after European settlement of Australia, this 208-year-old note is extremely rare. With NSW Promissory Notes known by a handful of examples, this is your chance to own some of Australia’s earliest, rarest history. And what astonishing history this Garnham Blaxcell note represents!

A favourite of Governor King, partner of John Macarthur, a key player in the Rum Rebellion that overthrew Governor Bligh, one of the men contracted by Governor Macquarie to build the Rum Hospital…Blaxcell was associated with so many of the key figures and key events of early colonial Australia. Ambitious, Blaxcell ended up deep in debt, and fled Australia for London, only to die in Batavia due to excess drinking.

Issued at the time of the Holey Dollar & Dump, and pre-dating Australia’s first bank, this early piece of Australiana is a rarity of the highest order. Rare in any grade, the single available example is graded PMG15 – the equivalent of Fine.
