Type 3 specimen notes were released specifically to demonstrate the change in the legend from COMMONWEALTH OF AUSTRALIA to AUSTRALIA, and to introduce the new $50 note. They have the word SPECIMEN in very large outline type printed diagonally twice on each side of the note with the added inscription of NO VALUE in medium type in the watermark area. Each note also carries an individual specimen serial number. The notes were distributed as individual notes in each of the 6 denominations - $1, $2, $5, $10, $20 and $50. See separate entry for the complete set of 6 notes.
