He also said the note’s serial number has to begin with ‘BA 15’ for the note to be worth the big sum.
‘Depending on condition it is worth between $100 and $1,750,’ he revealed at the end of his video.
And most of his fans were impressed.
‘I work at 7/11, if I find one I am definitely replacing it with one of my new notes,’ one man said.
‘You could have told me this before I used it at the canteen,’ one girl said.
The video was liked more than 15,000 times in just eight hours.
‘Knowing I spent $100 worth of $5 notes all at once last year is really hurting me now,’ another woman said.
‘I have been saving these for years, I have hundreds of them,’ one person said.

But some were at a loss as to where they would be expected to find a valuable note.
‘I haven’t used cash since 2019,’ one woman said.
Some tried their luck with other notes.
‘Mine starts with DG,’ one woman wrote.
But the money expert responded letting her know it was only worth $5.
He later revealed the valuable note was the ‘last print run’ of the old-style note – which is what makes it so popular.
‘They printed these to fulfil increased demand in 2015,’ he added.
One woman bragged she had two of the last edition old-style notes and planned on ‘hanging on to them’ for many years to come.
The TikTokker said notes with the batch number can be successfully sold on eBay.
Otherwise people wanting to get rid of them should see a coin or bank note dealer to get it graded and to discuss a sale.
