If you have information about the prefixes for the three hollow stars symbol, please let us know.

Since 2016, six different ‘star’ symbols have been observed on the $2 polymer notes. As of January 2020, the symbols are one star, two stars, three stars, one hollow star, two hollow stars and three hollow stars.

In early 2019, limited pieces of $2 notes with a house symbol on the reverse have been observed in circulation. These banknotes bear serial numbers starting with the digit ‘7’. This could have meant that prefix ‘6’ would finally come to an end, but it seems that more prefixes are still being released during the banknote exchange period ahead of the 2020 Chinese New Year.

Tommy ong, Tz: Agreed, the double prefix VV is also something which some collectors are interested in. Also, the number 236745 is a jumbled ladder which contains the consecutive digits 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7 scrambled up.

Hi Wei Jie, I was searching the internet for what these symbols on the bank note mean and chanced upon your interesting site. Would you know what these symbols are for? Thanks in advance!
