This is the Reserve Bank of New Zealand's oldest bank note- and it could bring as much as $100,000 when it heads to auction in the US next week. 

The ten-shilling banknote dates back to 1934 and has the serial number Z000001, showing that it is the first note off the press. It features both the Maori king Tawhiao and a Kiwi bird and was only in circulation for around 6 years. 

It is up for auction with Stack's Bowers Galleries on the 12th of August where it could sell for between $50,000 and $100,000.
