Notes : The first Riddle/Heathershaw five pound notes were mistakenly printed with the former title of Chairman of Directors, Note Issue Department instead of Governor, Commonwealth Bank. The mistake was quickly rectified resulting in this rare issue. The serial numbers used for the Note Issue Department type were within the range used for the Commonwealth Bank type, however, prefixes of only Q/11 or Q/12 occur.
