I saw Australia Post spruiking the new $100 note, with the new note being sold for $128. See link https://auspost.com.au/shop/product/next-generation-of-100-1...
While I understand that collectors pay over the odds for rare items, this seems to have nothing rare about it:
- There is no limited edition serial number or special design
- There is no special frame / display / certificate of authenticity, not even a brochure / booklet that could add some value
- It will be delivered upto 6 weeks after the note actually gets into circulation.Which means you could walk into a banlk branch and ask for a brand new $100 note before this even arrives.
So, I'm stumped. What am I missing here? Why is this even collectible, let alone worth paying a 28% premium for?
