No wiping your nose on your sleeve is the cryptic clue, but probably doesn't help anyone :?

bugger, ok I retract my question as I don't deserve to set one, not only for guessing wrong, but also for being arrogant & thinking I was right

OK I'll give it away as nobody seems interested or knows it...

Baron was right when talking about money...

2 dollar - "Education Theme"
5 dollar - "Garden City Theme"
10 dollar - "Sports Theme"
50 dollar - "Arts Theme"
100 dollar - "Youth Theme"
1000 dollar - "Government Theme"
10000 dollar - "Economy Theme"

So the answer was 100 - 1,000 and 10,000

(Frankly speaking I never heard about the 1,000 and 10,000 notes until this week!)
