Paper Abstract

In 1996 Australia became the first country in the world to have an all-polymer currency in general circulation. Australia's first polymer note was a commemorative note that was issued in January 1988 to celebrate the bicentenary of European settlement. That note was the culmination of almost twenty year's collaboration between the Reserve Bank of Australia and the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation. This paper traces the development of the Bicentennial Banknote note from its conception at a brain- storming meeting between RBA and CSIRO scientists in 1968 through to its release in 1988.
