Banknotes for sale can be viewed online at www.polymernotes.org/store

All notes are uncirculated (UNC) unless otherwise stated. We use the International Bank Note Society (IBNS) grading standards. Banknotes graded by third-party grading companies are identified as such.

All prices are in Euro (EUR) and include all taxes.

Prices are subject to change without notice. We reserve the right to amend orders, including product prices, in cases of clerical errors or when an item is out of stock.

Polymer banknotes in our price list use the Straus numbering system. For other banknotes, we use the Banknote Book numbering system (TBB) or the Pick numbering system (Standard Catalog of World Paper Money).

Customs charges and and taxes of the country of destination are the responsibility of the buyer. Please note that all orders will be mailed from the EU.

If some of the banknotes from your order are not available, you will have the option (i) to make alternative choices, (ii) to wait until the banknotes become available, or (iii) to accept a full or partial refund.

Bulk orders, special requests and want lists are actively serviced.

Unless explicitly mentioned in the banknote description, you will receive a random serial number banknote of our choice. If the serial number (or the prefix, such as the first prefix) is stated in the banknote description, then you will receive that particular number (or prefix). You may, however, let us know your preference in terms of serial numbers, and we will try to accommodate your request.
