I keep a lookout for old currencies whenever I scour the Jonker Street. You'll never know what you find there and in the early mornings, especially at Jalan Hang Lekir. Stalls are up as early as 7am or earlier but I only discovered the little surprise as I traipsed out of our hotel around 10am on a Sunday. The peddlers were already wrapping up but I managed to get some old coins.
My father collects some old notes and he has kindly shared some with me.
This is a RM100 not-so-old note but it's never been used before and smells new.
I remember receiving these as angpows, when I was in still single. RM100 is a hefty sum and I remembered feeling very 'rich' when I received these ang pow tokens
Unstained and in perfect condition, a Thomas de la Rue production, this is 70 years old !!
I shall treasure and safeguard my note possession with care.
Anyone into collecting old notes too ?
