Banknotes

On the 1st of May 1913, the Australian government was ready to print its first ever paper banknotes, and a new system of money management was born with the 10 shilling note.

This note however was not the first banknote with Australia written on it, as throughout the previous century many banks circulated there own banknotes almost all of which are very rarely seen today. 

As time went by, Australia changed from the pound to the dollar and such had to roll out a new branch of paper banknotes, ranging from 1 dollar to 100 dollars.

And finally as we all know today, in 1988 Australia made the first polymer banknotes of which are still in use today. Many would think that todays modern notes aren't worth collecting, but even today errors arise allowing collecting to continue in future generations.
