Notes : The death of King George VI belatedly led to the introduction of new designs for the ten pound note. Commander of the First Fleet and first Governor of New South Wales, Captain Arthur Phillip, features on the front of the new note and a theme of Industry and Science appears on the back, together with a woman modelled by Karina Nartiss.
