1 Share of £100. black on vellum. No 754. The bank, the oldest still-surviving bank (and public company) in Australia, dates from 1817, on the initiative of Governor Macquarie, who granted it a charter of limited liability. The initial capital was £20.000 in shares of £100. But even such a modest offer was difficult to sell, and after one year only half the shares had sold. This share dates from a capital increase in 1832, needed for a steady increase in the bank's scope and operations. In 1982 the bank merged with the Commercial Bank ofAustralia to form the Westpac Corporation. Shows the arms of the colony.
