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.
