The Australian two dollar note was introduced in 1966 to replace the £1 note due to decimalisation. It was replaced by a gold coloured coin from 1988.
The paper design included a watermark in the white field of Captain James Cook, the watermark was also used in the last issue of pound banknotes. A metallic strip, first near the centre of the note, then from 1976 moved to the left side on the obverse of the note.
