Interesting Singapore Commemorative Banknotes

Singapore has issued several commemorative banknotes throughout the years, and most Singaporeans may not have seen them before, thus i shall share them with you in this post. If you are interested in owning a piece of the banknote, I would recommend you to buy them now as the prices are rising fast due to the limited prints and the increasing demand for these notes from overseas collectors. I have attached scans of 2 commemorative notes in this post.

The 1st note is the polymer $50 note to celebrate the nations 25th year of independence. The front illustrates the country's development. The oval in the centre shows the first President of Singapore, Encik Yusof bin Ishak. The back of the note highlights the multi-racial character of Singapore. Note the red date 9 August 1990, only 300,000 notes are produced with the red date.

This note was also circulated for a period of time during 1990, where 4.8 million notes were put into circulation. The supply dwindled, and disappeared from circulation within a short period of time.

The 2nd note is the second commemorative note, as well as the 2nd 25 dollar note ever produced by Singapore. This note commemoratives the 25th Anniversary of MAS, and it is not circulated.
