Update - June 2020


New $100 assurance banknotes are now available for machine users (such as retailers, banks and other customers) to test the readiness of their equipment prior to the general circulation date later this year. These are final production banknotes that will enable you to test and validate the solutions deployed by your manufacturer for your machines to process the new $100 banknotes. They will be despatched from our National Banknote Site in Craigieburn, Victoria.

Banknotes are available from both the first print run in 2019, and the most recent production run which has the different signature block and more production variation. Banknotes from both production runs will go into circulation later this year.

Machine users should confirm with their banknote equipment manufacturer that their equipment has been upgraded before testing with the new banknotes.

Order Process for Assurance Banknotes

If you are a machine user and have a signed Banknote Access Agreement with us, you will shortly receive a separate email with instructions for placing orders. If you have not received this email, or would like more information about joining our program, please contact our Industry Engagement Team.

Other Banknotes

The following material is still available for banknote equipment manufacturers:

  • New $100 banknotes from both the 2019 and 2020 production runs (with different signature blocks) available in lots of 20, 500 and 1,000 (with non-consecutive serial numbers)
  • New $100 production banknotes in shrink-wrapped bundles (‘bricks’) with consecutive serial numbers.
