This is an Australian Bicentenary bank note commemorative $10 note from 1988. It was the first banknote to be printed on polymer substrate with an integrated optically variable device; it was released on 26 January 1988, the bicentenary of Governor Arthur Phillip's naming of the colony Sydney Town. The banknote incorporates an optically variable device that portrays Captain James Cook. It features a vessel of the First Fleet, HMS Supply, the first ship to drop anchor in Sydney Cove, and a frieze of figures across the landscape, beginning with convicts and continuing with subsequent waves of migration to Australia.
