On 1st September 2016, the Reserve Bank of Australia released the first new $5 banknote design in 23 years.
A very special offer here from Noteworthy Collectibles of the first prefix AA16 and last prefix EJ16 from the all new Australian Next Generation Five Dollars banknotes. Both are in pristine uncirculated condition.
A strong addition to any portfolio of key Australian banknotes. These new notes have become incredibly popular in a very short time.
It is still unclear if the notes will be withdrawn from circulation, as it often fails to register in vending machines, pokie machines and other forms of automated ticketing. If this was to happen the value of notes such as these would certainly rise even faster.
The design with the clear window through the middle is another world first for Australian banknotes and the design, This clear window has also proven problematic with some notes ripping along this weaker point in the note structure.
The hologram of the Eastern Spinebill bird which flutters its wings is still a great touch and brings home the Australian flavour of the currency.
The all-new tactile feature to assist sight-impaired people with identification, of the note denomination. This feature consists of a small raised bump on the upper side of the note surface.
A great opportunity to get a perfect example of these first and last prefix notes.
