The letter and numbers appear vertically in red on both left and right hand sides, being a combination of Roman (occasionally Arabic) numbers and the letters ‘A’ and ‘O’Alpha and Omega?, in two sequences, with A trailing and then A leading. These codes change every 20,000 notes so there are approximately a hundred different combinations.

The full text of the codes is given reading up the left side of the note, then down the right.
