If you are an avid bank note collector, well, today may just be a good day for you!
Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM) has recently unveiled its latest commemorative notes collection, featuring RM60
bank notes to commemorate our 60th
National Day and also the anniversary of the signing of the Federation of Malaya Independence Agreement.
The RM600 notes will be sold for RM1,700
per piece, while the RM60 notes will be sold for RM120
If you wish to buy the uncut 3-in-1 piece of the RM60 note, it will cost you RM500
The notes can be used in your daily cash transactions with the face value stated on the note. But with the amount of price paid for the note, we doubt that anyone would want to use them.
Besides, we think it's too pretty and the only place it deserves to be in is an album, a safe, or maybe a picture frame.
The RM600 note is also said to be the “biggest note in the world”, measuring 370mm by 220mm. The design was based on the theme "Raja Payung Kedaulatan Negara" and also has heightened security features.
The bank notes are printed in limited quantity, so be sure to be among the first to place your orders when it goes on sale on 5 January 2018
Apart from bank notes, four commemorative coins were also issued by BNM.
The types of coins offered by the bank are gold, silver, copper,
and Nordic gold brilliant uncirculated
which has the face value of RM300
, and RM1
The gold coins will be sold via public auction starting from RM4,000
per piece while the remaining coins will be sold for RM1,000
(copper) and RM11
(Nordic gold brilliant uncirculated).
