Paper Decimal Banknotes
The introduction of decimal currency to Australia in 1966 was unequivocally one of the biggest changes ever made to the Australian monetary system. The 3 decades over which paper decimal banknotes were produced provides collectors with a large variety of notes to collect, as well as a number of different ways of accumulating them.
Australia’s transition to polymer technology in the 1990’s resulted in a vast increase in the number of collectors of paper decimal banknotes. As this broad demand base continues to increase in financial capacity and numismatic sophistication, collectors go on to purchase rarer and higher quality notes.
