Notes : There is an overlap with signatures for the 1996 dated banknotes, with both Fraser/Evans and Macfarlane/Evans signatures used.

Test notes : In 1997, the RBA made a special print run of Macfarlane/Evans notes to test a minor modification to one of the materials used in the opacifying inks. The test was successful and the RBA decided to put the notes into general circulation. Some 300,000 such notes were released into the circulation with prefixes running from AN97 to DN97, and with the serial number range from 999999 to 990229, meaning there are only around 7,500 notes for each prefix. The previously accepted prefix range for this issue was BA97 to HB97, with M as the highest letter used as the second letter of the prefix letter A as the first prefix letter was not used for regular issue $5 notes since 1995.
