Note Printing Australia Test Notes

Posted on

Note Printing Australia has produced test polymer notes on a number of occasions: these notes bear no denomination but are believed to be designed to show-case the polymer banknote technology. A number of these notes are known in private hands, though their intended recipients are most likely overseas central bank or government employees. Various designs have been produced over the years.
