One of the 'Glamour Notes' of Australian numismatics, highly sought after by all collectors, the 1973 $50 Phillips/Wheeler YAA First Prefix is among Australia's most valuable decimal banknote issues. Created due to inflationary pressures in the early 1970s, the then new $50 was Australia's highest denomination when issued in 1973. Much like the £10 and £5 notes of the predecimal era, the 1973 $50 Phillips/Wheeler was naturally seen by most people as too valuable to blithely set aside as a keepsake at the time of issue.

Thus, even the standard 1973 $50 Phillips/ Wheeler is scarce in superior grade. When bearing the First Prefix, YAA, Australia's first $50 is recognised as one of the nation's rarest, most desirable decimal notes. A mouthwatering opportunity, we have the 1973 $50 Phillips/Wheeler YAA First Prefix in strictly Uncirculated condition!
