you are indeed correct, along with other synonyms such as "squid" and "nugget". Alternatives for a five pound note (a "fiver") include "lady Godiva" or "bluey" (they are blue in colour) and for a ten pound note ("tenner") one could say "Ayrton Senna", or "browny" due, you guessed it, to the brown colouring.

More cockney speak for ya would include 50 quid being called a "pony" and 500 smackers being called a "monkey". Don’t ask me why…..
