The Australian government never demonetized, “called in” or otherwise withdrew from circulation the 1988 series polymer plastic, 10 Dollar notes commemorating the Bicentennial of British Settlement. They issued thousands of them as souvenirs in special folders. These sell retail for about US$15. Circulated examples are worth face value.
