Australian Paper $2 Note Issued 1975 ~ 1988 Great Condition

Front: John MacArthur at right

Back: William James Farrer at left

Period on Issue: June 19th 1974 ~ June 17th 1988


These genuine Australian $2 notes are still in crisp and original condition.

Australian $1-2 notes were issued from 1966 right up until they were replaced by coins in 1988.

Some notes can be particularly valuable if they have the right serial numbers or if they're in mint condition. The rarest $2 notes can sell for up to $5,000 each.

Within Australia, the RBA has estimated that approximately 12 million two dollar notes are still in circulation.

Because $2 notes were printed across a period of around 3 decades, collectors have identified a number of different varieties that are needed to get for a complete set.

Australias transition to polymer technology in the 1990s resulted in a vast increase in the number of collectors of paper decimal banknotes. That happened again between 2016 and 2020 as the Next Generation Banknote series was introduced, and yet again when the Queen passed away in September 2022.

As this broad demand base becomes more sophisticated, collectors will no doubt continue to purchase rarer and higher quality notes.

The notes that we offer here are in decent condition, but aren't mint. An experienced collector would describe them as being in Extremely Fine or better quality.

Although paper $2 notes were issued in Australia from 1966, the ones that we're offering here are the "AUSTRALIA" type, which were issued between 1974 and 1988.

The paper is bright, the colours are strong and the edges are completely intact. Although they have some light folding throughout the body, they look fantastic.

The great thing about getting notes like this is they are a lot more affordable than notes that are in mint condition, and cost a fraction of the price.

Because they are already slightly folded, you don't have to worry about members of the family handling them if you get them out.

They're great to use to show young folks what our money was like "back in the day".
