New Bicentennial commemorative $20 notes

Recommended Posts

My Dad asked me to change for him but it seems to be sold out everywhere.

Don't ask me to get from Carousell. Disgusting mark up.

 

RadX must have bought alot. No need to Q.  [laugh]

Some banks still have so no need buy from Carousell.

 

Even if really all issued, don’t see the need to buy from scalpers as these notes won’t appreciate much in later years. It’s more for collection. I have lots of commemorative coins from the 80s n 90s n they get tarnished over time. Feel like it was money wasted.

I still rem the time the new current $1 coins came out …

 

I went to the hawker centre and got two of the $1 coins as change for my meal … then I went to buy TOTO with the coins.

 

the TOTO lady even confirm with me if I really want to use the new coins ??!!

 

I just told her "one week later, these coins will be everywhere."

 

money is money and is meant to be earned and spent.

 

not kept in a stupid album.

The old $20 notes maybe next time worth more, cos it's not v common by now.

 

The old $25 notes confirmed worth more, as it's even more rare... I should have kept them those years ago when i came across them  [laugh]

i have... but the appreciation is like 25 for 30ish 

 

its those defect notes.. or special serial numbers that are worth a whole lot more...  

 

commemorative notes or coins are USELESS since the volume they print/make is so high... that people buy to keep...

if supply is high ... then how to speculate? IF sgp cease to exist.... thats a different story ...

SG50 already had a few sets (sorta forced by my parents and sister to buy) even though i wasn't keen.

Cos my son is also a SG50 kid...

 

I find it's not much point. 

This bicentennial thing is really can't be bothered.

OT: SG50 got national day or not?

 

My son SG40 on national day. Pizza hut gave 40 pan pizzas so it was better than any (potential/minimal if any) appreciation of these commemorative notes  [laugh]

Wah 1st Jan sure got lots of freebies right?

 

Mine was just as all the NDP performances were finishing. And what coincidence, it's so close, my son came out at 7.55 pm. The gynae was joking with the nurses in the delivery suite and looking at the NDP live telecast, saying the baby wanna come out and see NDP in time  :D

The SG50 set has a version that they misspell the name of the nation's first president.
