Following the Constitution of 1937 the official name of the 'Irish Free State' was changed to 'Ireland'. This was reflected in a change of title of the issuing authority from 'Currency Commission Irish Free State' to 'Currency Commission Ireland' on all the banknotes from 1938 onwards. The coinage was also changed from 1938 onwards.
