Notes : The death of King George VI presented an opportunity to introduce new designs for the ten shillings note. Captain Matthew Flinders is featured on the front of the new note and the then Parliament House in Canberra appears on the back.

Approximately 557,548,000 ten shilling notes were produced between 1954 and 1966 with the only change being in signatory H. C. Coombs title when responsibility for issuing notes was transferred from the Commonwealth Bank to the Reserve Bank of Australia.

The numbering wheels used on note printing machines had prefix digits and six numeral digits. To complete each series, a special hand press was used to imprint the seven digit numeral on the one millionth note. The practice was continued with decimalisation until 1971.
