Australian Banknote Auction Sales Books by Mick Vort Ronald (1972 - 2014)
This is an essential resource of auction sales data for the Australian banknote collector.
To the uninitiated banknote collector, the market for rare Australian banknotes can often appear to be opaque - they can seem to move from collection to collection somewhat mysteriously, and it can be extremely difficult to see how the market tracks over time.
A printed price guide (such as the McDonald Pocket Guide or the Renniks Guide) can only at best provide an indication of values for Australian banknotes - a reasoned estimate by an experienced market observer as to what a particular note in a particular grade will bring. The tried and true way of estimating value when it comes to any coin or note is to compare it against what similar items have sold for, preferably in a transparent and open forum such as a public auction.
When a particular note becomes available, a collector can ask themselves one (or a few!) of the following questions:
How has this banknote been graded previously?
What did it sell for previously?
Has it previously been included in a "named" or famous collection?
What have comparable notes sold for lately?
What were comparable notes selling for 5 years ago?
Until recently, the ability to answer questions such as these required a personal database of auction catalogues painstakingly built up over a period of time. Such a resource will not only take decades to build (and can be impossible to build retrospectively), it can also be incredibly expensive.
The good news is that Mick Vort-Ronald has kept meticulous records on the auction sales of Australian banknotes for several decades now, leaving us with a perfect resource that can be used to look up pretty much any Australian pre-decimal banknote, as well as many scarcer decimal banknotes.
These books allow the advanced collector of Australian banknotes to quantify the rarity of the notes they have an interest in, and to see what pattern of activity they have been part of over an extended period of time.
If you collect Australian banknotes in any way, these books are an excellent resource worth their weight in gold and will prove their value time and again.
Sales data from 2015 onwards is obviously just as important, and can be obtained in other editions of Mick's books - these are a great base to start with.
