Obverse: Portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II with the Australian Coat of Arms. This portrait was based on a photo taken by Douglas Glass.
Reverse: Aboriginal Contemporary Art, created by David Malangi. The artwork depicts the 'mortuary feast' of one of the artist's creation ancestors, Gunmirringu, the great Ancestral Hunter. The Manharrngu people attribute this story as the origin of their mortuary rites.

Watermark: Portrait of Captain James Cook in the white field.
An upright internal metallic strip was first placed near the centre of the note, then from 1976 was moved to the left side as viewed from the obverse.

The Australian one dollar note was designed by Gordon Andrews, the design being accepted in April 1964.
The Australian one dollar note was introduced in 1966 to replace the 10 shilling note due to decimalisation. Approximately 1.7 billion one dollar banknotes were printed. The Australian one dollar banknotes were in circulation from its introduction in 1966 until its replacement by the current gold-colored dollar coin on 13 May 1984, due to the longer service life and cost effectiveness of coins. These notes can be redeemed at face value by the Reserve Bank of Australia.
