Almost 20% of current notes in circulation are $100's, but how often does one see them in general circulation (not often)? And yet this is almost double the number of $5 and $10's combined (21.7%), which are far more commonly seen in general circulation. Where are all these $100's? (probably in bank vaults).

Also, if you take a look at the number of notes printed, at which time were the most notes printed? 2007-2009, during the financial crisis (288 million 07/08, 275 million 08/09). Little wonder why interest rates are rising so quickly.

Hi, I'm new.
Maybe all the green ones are tied up in casinos, drugs, banking and all other vice. Most people pay either by card or 50's for everyday purchases. But there is still a hell of a lot of them out there.

Someone from Ballarat City recently entered a "1995" $100 note and a couple of suspicious $50s immediately before it.

The only $100 notes around in 1995 were all paper notes.

The "suspicious" $100 note also has the serial AAxxxxx001. Definitely fake...

I see $100 notes occasionally. I suspect most of them are used for storage (aka. rainy day funds etc.). The only time you see them used is probably out of the fact that they have nothing else that they no other note to use...

Someone recently added a new $50 as a 2018 $20 by mistake.
