Rare £20 note AK47 serial numbers AK47 81 58 18.They are £5, £10, £20 and £50 notes issued on November 2 last year and have nothing discernible to mark them out.
However, because of their condition and serial number, they are worth a mint.
Some are likely to fetch hundreds of pounds at auction.
First of all one £50 has a guide price of up to £400.
While these notes are particularly special as they have not been in circulation and some have matching, low serial numbers, experts say not all valuable notes need bear these qualities.
In fact an unassuming note you would hand over in a shop could be worth much more than its face value, just because of its serial number.
Particular serial numbers can also increase the value of notes .
Although the first four digits indicate this, and each note will also have a prefix,such as AK 47 some of which are more valuable than others.
Which accurately determining the value of a note is much like any antique.
So you need experience, technique to know what you are looking at and to be able to spot forgeries.
For those interested in note collecting, the Bank of England notes are set to be sold by auctioneers Spink in a charity auction.

Twenty pound notes were introduced by the Bank of England for the first time in 1725.
The earliest notes were handwritten, and were issued to individuals as needed.
These notes were written on one side only and bore the name of the payee, the date, and the signature of the issuing cashier.
With the exception of the Restriction Period between 1797 and 1821.
These notes could be exchanged in full, or in part, for an equivalent amount of gold.
When presented at the bank.
If redeemed in part, the banknote would be signed to indicate the amount that had been redeemed.
From 1853 printed notes replaced handwritten notes,
With the declaration "I promise to pay the bearer on demand the sum of twenty pounds" replacing the name of the payee.
This declaration remains on Bank of England banknotes to this day.
A printed signature of one of three cashiers appeared on the printed notes,
Though this was replaced by the signature of the Chief Cashier from 1870 onward.
This is our second-largest banknote, measuring approximately 149mm x 80mm.

The vertical number runs down the left-hand side and the numbers and letters are the same height and colour.
The international copyright symbol is included on the front and the back of the £20 note.
Finally you can find it to the left of the holographic strip on the front of the note, and on the back under the words ‘Bank of England’.
