1952 Five Pound Coombs/Wilson R48 Uncirculated Description

1952 Five Pound Coombs/Wilson R48 Uncirculated

This is a truly fantastic example of this higher denomination dating to the Korean War.

Dr Herbert Cole (Nugget) Coombs was Governor of the Commonwealth Bank of Australia between January 1st 1949 and January 13th 1960 and was then the inaugural Governor of the Reserve Bank of Australia from the date of its establishment on January 14th 1960 until July 22nd 1968.

Sir Roland Wilson was Secretary to the Treasury between April 1st 1951 andOctober 27th 1968.

£5notes with this signature combination were issued over a fraction of that period - between March 1952 and July 1954.

The mintage of the £5notes with these two signatures was 30,294,000.

The paper of this particular note is crisp and incredibly straight, confirming it remains in original condition.

The intaglio ink is raised also, which really is outstanding for a note of this age.

It remains a superb example of the second-largest denomination note to circulate throughout Australia during the Korean War.
