. . . a complete collection of all Australian polymer notes (single note) issued since 1988, including all commemoratives, joint issues and special serial numbered issues. The only sets that I do not have, at the moment, are the 1988 bicentenary 3 coins and 3 banknotes portfolio album issue and the 1998 $10 Portraits AA98/AB98 (with or without frame). The Coins & Banknotes set comprises of 3 notes ($2 last paper, $5 paper and $10 polymer 1988 commemorative). I have not purchased this set as the notes used for this issue were just ordinary notes with no unique or special serial numbers. A total set of 25,000 albums were issued at a price of $120. As for the $10 Portrait set, it was a failure at that time and the notes were later withdrew as it was not popular among collectors. The price was not right then!

news: . . . the Prime Minister of Australia has announced on 8.12.2014 that John A. Fraser will take up the Secretary to the Treasury position from 15.01.2015. The appointment is for 5 years. He will replace Dr Martin Pakinson, who was appointed to the role since 2011. Dr Pakinson was supposed to resign in early this year (2014) but was persuaded by the Treasurer to stay on until a suitable replacement was found. With this replacement, we would expect new signature for the 2016 reprints, unless they decided to have new signature for the 2015 reprints if any will be issued.
