Australian Banknotes-The Last Australian Paper 100 Dollar Banknote Design

Illustrated below is the obverse and reverse design of the last Australian 100 dollar banknote. The specifications were;
Obverse Sir Douglas Mawson
Reverse John Tebutt
Signatories B. W. Fraser, Governor, Reserve Bank of Australia
C. J. Higgins, Secretary to the Treasury
Size 170mm [width], 82.50mm [height]
Composition Paper
Watermark Captain Cook in left panel

This is not an example of the final issue of the note (the last issue was signed Fraser/Cole in 1991) but the design remained the same until polymer 100 notes were introduced in 1996.
