Obverse: Portrait of Sir Joseph Banks, English naturalist, botanist and patron of the natural sciences. He took part in Captain James Cook's first great voyage to Botany Bay (1768–1771). Banks is credited with the introduction to the Western world of eucalyptus, acacia, mimosa and the genus named after him, Banksia.

Reverse: Portrait of Caroline Chisholm - progressive 19th-century English humanitarian known mostly for her involvement with female immigrant welfare in Australia, as well as elevations of Sydney streets from Joseph Fowles’ "Sydney in 1848", the cover of the Shipping Gazette, a watercolour 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.

Watermark: Portrait of Captain James Cook in the white field.
A metallic strip, first near the centre of the note, then from 1976 moved to the left side on the obverse of the note.

The initial paper five dollar note was designed by Gordon Andrews, with Russell Drysdale as the Reserve Bank of Australia’s artistic advisor.
The Australian 5 dollar note was first issued on 29 May 1967, one year after the currency was changed from the Australian pound to the Australian dollar on 14 February 1966. It was a new denomination, as the pound system had no £2½, with a new mauve colouration.
