Varieties and details

Plate letter

It refers to the letters that can be found on banknotes. Here's where it can be found on a Frase-Cole 1991 10 dollars banknote:

Plate letter - Frase-Cole 1991 10 dollars banknote

Thread (center thread and side thread)

Starting in 1974, the Reserve Bank added a metallic security thread down the centre of banknotes as a new security feature. Because the center position is also the place where people fold their banknotes, they used prematurely. This is why the Reserve Bank moved the position of the thread to the side. The location of the thread (a dark line) can easily be found by looking at the banknote with enough lights passing through it.

Gothic

It refers to the font used for the serial number. Gothic font is narrow compared to the OCRB one.

Gothic font - Australian banknotes

OCRB

It refers to the font used for the serial number. OCRB (Optical Character Recognition) font is narrow compared to the Gothic one. OCRB function was to facilitate the optical character recognition operations by specific electronic devices. It was accepted as the world standard in 1973.

Star (*)

It refers to the star (pre-decimal) or asterix (decimal) that can be found at the end of the serial number to indicates replacement notes.
