AU$100 COLLECTOR'S ITEM PAPER BILL | MELBA AND MONASH | #NUMISMATIST​

 



MELBA AND MONASH AU$100 COLLECTOR'S ITEMS PAPER BILL NOTE 

One of our paper bill collection is from Australia Bank Note Reserve. This AU$100 paper bill was from the first $100 polymer print run with the serial number AA96-dated 15 May 1996. I am not aware of how much this AU$100 value at this time, if you have any idea, let me know in the comment section below.

Width 158 mm
Height 65 mm

This paper bill is not for sale. 

The Australian one-hundred-dollar note was first issued in 1984 as a paper note. There have been two different issues of this denomination: initially a very light turquoise-blue paper note, and from May 1996, a green polymer note. Since the start of issue there have been six signature combinations. Two other combinations were not issued.

The polymer issue was designed by Bruce Stewart, and features portraits of soprano Dame Nellie Melba and engineer and First World War general Sir John Monash.

The polymer issue includes a shadow image of the Australian Coat of Arms, which is printed over. In the clear window, there is embossing—or a raised image—of the number 100 and a print of a lyrebird. Also for this issue, fluorescent colouring was added to the serial numbers, as well as a patch that shows the banknote's value under ultraviolet light. The star's four points on the obverse and three on the reverse join to form the seven-pointed Federation Star when the note is held up to the light. Raised print and micro-printing of the denomination value are also included.
