AUD 50 notes was first issued on 29 May 1967, fifteen months after the currency was changed from the pound to the AUD on 14 February 1966. It was a new denomination with mauve colouration – the pre-decimal system had no denomination with a value of $2½. The first polymer version of the note was introduced in 1992. A major design update was issued from 1 September 2016, with a minor update to the signatures in 2019.
The first issue was a paper note which had a gradient of mauve, with a distinct black overprint.
It featured portraits of Sir Joseph Banks and Caroline Chisholm, as well as elevations of Sydney streets from Joseph Fowles’ “Sydney in 1848”, the cover of the Shipping Gazette, a watercolor of the Waverley, and a handbill of a meeting of the Family Colonization Loan Society. All of these images were sourced from the State Library of New South Wales.
The first Polymer banknote issue, which can be recognized for its mauve colouration and numeral font, was first issued in pale mauve in 1992. A number of people found it difficult to distinguish it from the AUD 50 banknote, especially in poor lighting conditions.
On the 1995 design, Queen Elizabeth II, Queen of Australia is on the obverse, along with eucalyptus (gum) leaves. There is a number 5 in the right hand corner of both sides of the AUD. The word “Australia” is written to the bottom left of the Queen. Parliament House appears on the reverse. Parkes appears on the obverse and Catherine Helen Spence on the reverse.
The same watermark was also used in the last issue of AUD banknotes. A new feature of the decimal currency was metallic strip embedded within the paper of the note, first near the centre of the note, then from 1976 moved to the left side on the obverse of the note.
The polymer issue includes: a shadow image of the Australian coat of arms which is visible under other printing when the note is held up to light; a pointed star with four points on the obverse and three on the reverse that come together under light; a clear window that has a stylised gum flower showing; and raised print and micro printing of the denomination value.
Some features of the banknote glow under UV light. These features include the serial number and a square patch on the reverse of the note. There is also raised printing around the portraits and major design elements of the note which can be felt by rubbing the finger or fingernail against them.
