The reverse depicts Captain James Cook's landing at Botany Bay in 1770, taken from a 1902 painting by E. Phillips Fox. The painting now resides in the National Gallery of Victoria. Approximately 63,965,400 one pound notes were printed between 1923 and 1925 with the Miller/Collins signature combination.
|This smaller note, designed and printed by Thomas S. Harrison, was introduced to improve production efficiency. Six notes could be printed per sheet instead of the previous four. The opportunity was taken to introduce new designs.|
