OUT OF RANGE SERIAL NUMBERS:
This checker tool uses serial ranges meant for notes issued for circulation, as updated by the reserve banks collector information webpage, sometimes a banknote found may show as “Serial # Out Of Range”, possible reasons for this are as follows.
Collectors Issue Note:
Some print runs have serial numbers allocated for special release, and generally meant for collections, these serials are often low numbered, sometimes coloured numbers such as Red instead of Black, and part of folder sets. Sometimes these note make their way into circulation, although not calculated for in the checker tool, these notes are often sought after and valuable and worth investigating further.
Outside Recorded Numbers:
Most commonly occuring with the ‘Next Generation Banknotes’, Additional serial numbers are being found outside of the recorded figures by the reserve bank, these may be updated over time and generally do not offer additional value to the note, the checker tool will still check for special serial types however if found are not included in any recorded totals.

  1. Hi, just wondering if the coin checker still exists. I had been using it often, but can’t find it anymore. Thanks

    1. Hi Emily, I had taken it down while I was restructuring this site, I’ll put the coin checker back up shortly, thanks for the input

  2. It seems the coin checker has been removed.
    I found it to be quite good.
    Is it coming back?

    1. Hi David, thanks for the message, yes it will be coming back, I’m currently updating the AUS and US note checker data, once that’s ready I’ll be remaking the coin checker with updated information as it was currently a few years outdated. Hope to have it back up in a few weeks

  3. Does anyone know if this $100 note worth anything, as I’m about to spend it. Thanks in advance.

  4. I have a 1980, Australian Auction site trial lead 5c. This was verified and n a comment on their website. People are telling me it is a fake. Is there an organization that can take a look at the pictures of it please?

  5. Ive got a 1984 $1 coin with queens head on both sides there not alligned either have you heard of this before or have i found a very rare coin?
