BANKNOTES

PRE-DECIMAL AND DECIMAL BANKNOTES HAVE A GREAT APPEAL TO COLLECTORS INTERESTED IN OUR HERITAGE AND ART. WITH THEIR ELABORATE AND DIGNIFIED IMAGES, THEY CARRY WITH THEM AN AIR OF EXCLUSIVITY NOT CAPTURED BY COINS OF THE SAME PERIOD.

BECAUSE OF THEIR PURCHASING POWER, VERY FEW PRE-DECIMAL BANKNOTES FROM THE DEPRESSION DAYS AND WORLD WAR ONE ACTUALLY REMAIN IN EXISTENCE, PARTICULARLY IN SUPERIOR QUALITY. THIS IS WHAT HAS MADE THE PRE-DECIMAL MARKET AS STRONG AS IT IS, ESPECIALLY WHEN COLLECTING NOTES IN RARE AND SUPERIOR GRADES.

WITH AUSTRALIA'S TRANSITION TO POLYMER TECHNOLOGY, THIS HAS RESULTED IN A VAST INCREASE IN THE NUMBER OF COLLECTORS OF PAPER DECIMAL NOTES. DECIMAL ISSUES SUCH AS STAR AND FIRST PREFIX NOTES ARE ALWAYS DIFFICULT TO FIND IN HIGHER GRADES AND ARE SOUGHT AFTER BY THE SERIOUS BANKNOTE COLLECTOR.
