Some lucky Australians may be in for an unexpected windfall, after a popular TikToker prompted Aussies to check their wallets for a $50 banknote that could be worth much, much more than that.
“Here’s a $50 note, that could get you between $70 and $1,500,” TikToker The History of Money said in a recent video.
Perth man Joel Kandiah, who creates interesting videos about Australian cash from his home, revealed that there was a small number of rare $50 notes in circulation with a particular detail that makes them valuable.
The combination in the top left corner of your note should read “AA 14” or “JC 14”, the video reveals.
This is what’s called a “Stevens” or “Parkinson signature combination”.
“Good luck hunting!”
It seems Aussies are keen to learn the secrets to getting the most bang for their buck: the TikTok account has nearly 47,000 followers and over 990,000 likes.
