Has anyone here ever had trouble reading serial numbers on Aussie notes? I've confused 6's and 9's once or twice, and a lot of people have registered 1998 $100 notes; there's no such thing!

I thought there weren't any, I have previously read the RBA serial number list. Now I saw them; oops!

I sometimes have a lot of trouble reading the serial numbers on $10 notes. A faded serial number tends to disappear against the blue background.

how many $100 notes were made in 1996, & 1998? I could swear black & blue i've had a AA98 note before. Remember because I didn't want to give it away but I got $2000 discount on a new racebike.

I've had heaps of AA & AZ $100 notes & GG notes that were really close together.

Well that AA 100 goes up in value, while the bike goes down. Guess next time then.

Does the serial number have check digits like with credit card numbers?

no...the only thing is the year which is the first 2 numbers on all notes except for the light pink fraser/cole $5.

You can g to rba.gov.au for serial number info and print runs.
