By George Nixon For Thisismoney. With the first banknotes being released into circulation, it is likely some will be taking a keen look at the 10 digit serial number in the hope they have ended up with one of the lowest numbered notes. This is because new fivers and tenners have – in the past – previously sold for big sums if the serial number is of particular interest.

The other common combination which is always touted as a highly valuable one is ‘AK47’, but This is Money has never found any evidence that this is the case.
