Do you need to reinstall or only need the serial number?
To retrieve the serial number - if Aperture is still running on any Mac you own, you can see the serial number in the "About" panel when Aperture is running:
From the main menu bar: Aperture > About Aperture.
If you do no longer have a running Aperture installation to retrieve the serial number, contact Apple with a proof of purchase and ask for a replacement serial number, see these links as to what is considered to be a proof of purchase:

You can download the Aperture Trial here:

Then launch Aperture and enter your serial numbers, all while signed in as an administrator.
