Australia $20 1993 Twenty Dollars Commemorative

80th Anniversary of First Commonwealth Note 1913-1993
Twenty Dollars, Dated 1993
Reverse
The first notes were printed in a Customs establishment situated near the Melbourne Docks - the (then) King's Warehouse. This building, which is still stands today as the Queen's Warehouse, acts as the central design theme in this folder. To link the 1913 with 1993, the numbering on the left hand side of this Twenty Dollar note has been printed in a similar typeface, colour and in the same numbering range as used in 1913 for the ten shilling note. The numbering typeface on the right hand side is the same used on paper notes in 1993 but in red - the first decimal note to be numbered in this colour. By taking the predecimal Ted Pound (now $20) note into consideration, this particular denomination circulated between 1925 and 1973 as the highest value note issued for the longest period of Australia's note issuing history - 48 years.
