Australia 10 Dollars 1988 Polymer P49a In Folder of issue

In 1988, Australia celebrated its Bicentenary. It was 200 years since permanent settlement began with the arrival of Captain Arthur Philip with 11 ships in the First Fleet in 1788. To mark this important event, Australia issued a special 10 dollar note. It turned out to be very special indeed. It was the first note in the world using the revolutionary polymer plastic developed by the Reserve Bank of Australia. It moved like paper but had all the durability of plastic. (P49) The front of the note depicts the arrival of the First Fleet and the varied immigrant population which has settled in the intervening 200 years. The back honours Australia’s indigenous population, the Aboriginal people who it is believed settled in Australia over 40,000 years ago. A wonderful note issued over 30 years ago, in official descriptive folder.

Bank Scotland £20 Polymer P-New Queensferry Crossing Commem Unc

When the Bank of Scotland released a polymer £20 last year, they decided to issue two different varieties. There was what would become the regular issue and then there was the Polymer £20 issued to commemorate the new Queensferry Crossing over the Firth of Forth which opened in August 2017. (P-New) These Queensferry Crossing £20 notes were considered a Special Edition because the number printed was limited. The front followed the regular design with the portrait of Sir Walter Scott to the right, a view of the Bank’s Headquarters on The Mound in Edinburgh and a holographic foil stripe featuring the image of Fame, found below the pediment on The Mound. The back is dominated by the span of the bridge over the Forth. There were several records set in its building. During construction in 2013 it made the Guinness Book of Records with the longest continuous underwater concrete pour. The balance cantilevers were recorded as the longest ever. Uncirculated and scarce Queensferry Crossing Polymer £20 notes. Very Limited availability
