We at Aussie Coins & Notes wish to enlighten you all about the great investments that can be found in your everyday banknote change. In the image pictured is a list which tells you which letters to look for at the beginning of a serial number on any given Australian polymer banknote from any denomination or year. The 2 letters at the beginning of an Australian Polymer banknote serial number are known as prefixes. It is always the FIRST AND LAST prefix of each banknote type and year which is collectible and valuable on the sales market. Just like 'Noodling' through Coinage to find 'Keepers' or Collectible pieces, banknotes also offer a lot of opportunity for a Collector to build a valuable and highly sought after collectible investment. Simply by knowing what to look for through learning and educating about Numismatics anyone can begin a collection at home just by looking through your everyday Banknotes found in circulation. Obviously the nice

Dear sir, I understand the prefix, but how I can find out the year of the issued note, is the year of the note starts after the prefix. Like one note of 50$ starts AI 09 561561 the figure09 is the date of note printing.
