-AU-  Not sure, maybe a company item or series number.
RMC  Not sure, maybe the companies logo or initials.
.01 Z      .01 uF      Z is the tolerance of +80% to -20%
Z5U    This is the temperature coefficient characteristics or curve.

Some of the characteristic curves can be found on:

I am not sure if your right on that or not.
In most cases the voltage is not writen on disc caps.
If it is it is usly writen like, 50V, 100V, 500V, 1KV, 6KV, ect.
right on the cap. itself.
Maybe some one else can shed some light on the first two numbers.
