A great Australian colonial rarity…

Bearing the name of an early New South Wales Crown Solicitor, and a man known to be an enemy of Governor Macquarie, this excessively rare Promissory Note was issued for William Henry Moore in 1816 – just 28 years after European settlement of Australia!

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. Much rarer than Tasmanian Promissory Notes of the time, this is one of a handful known examples of NSW Promissory Notes.

Graded at PMG12 (Fine), this 206-year-old note gives you the chance to hold modern Australia’s earliest history in your hands. Click add to cart now!
