For me, it was a 1993 10-dollar note.

It was in an incredible shape for its age.

Also entered some 1995 50-dollar notes...

So, what're the oldest notes you've entered?

1992 "AA" series $5 notes. The only note I haven't seen since I was a kid was the original 1988 $10 note.

The oldest (for me), barring the virtual $5 note would be these 1994-issue $20 notes:

Holy mackerel, where did you find a 1993-issue $10 in 2016? I don't think I've seen any pre-2005 $5 or $10 notes in a while (and even the 2002 and 03-mark ones are not common now)! Pre-2005 $20 notes have also become really hard to see in the past 5 years or so!

Most older issue notes I see (pre-1999) are either $50 or $100 notes these days!

1995 $50s are still easy to find (as are 1996 $100s, but you will most likely have to go to the bank or pokies/TAB to get $100s as ATMs with those are few and far between). I had a 1994 $20 in my change earlier this year, haven't seen another one since. The 2001 Federation $5s seem to have all but vanished too.

$50 and $100 notes are pretty much the only notes I will see that have a printing date from the 1990's. I did recently get a 1994-issue $20 note as well, I haven't seen anymore since. $50 (and especially) $100 notes do not get used as often, hence they survive longer and tend to be in far better condition. If I ever get a $100 note from an ATM, there is a good chance it will be a 1996-99 note.

As for the old $5/10/20 notes, they are simply used far too often and wear out I guess. I would also venture to say that some have been withdrawn from circulation (other than the RBA disposing of said note). I have a 2002 $5 that is pretty well used. I have a 2002 $10 which is little better. They are both in the condition that if it was used at a store, it would be sent for disposal, more or less.

They (ATMs which dispense $100 notes) seem to be common at Shopping Centres and also in the CBD.

I haven't seen a Pale Mauve or a Federation $5 note in (I would say) years now. They are simply that rare.

Sorry for the late reply, but I believe my mother got it in change at a local shopping centre.

I have only ever entered one 1990s $20 note, that being from 1998. Its currently in my wallet as pocket money, heres the entry for it:
