今天去超市買東西被找錢後，收到了一張10元新幣鈔票， 仔細一看是帶有SG50 邊的，原來是新加坡兩年前慶祝建國50週年的限量版鈔票。
Singapore, 18 August 2015…Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong today unveiled a set of six commemorative currency notes >to celebrate SG50. The commemorative notes, issued by the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS), comprise a $50 >polymer note and five $10 polymer notes. Together with a set of three commemorative coins launched in April this >year, the notes complete the set of SG50 commemorative currencies issued by MAS to mark Singapore’s 50 years of >nation-building.
SINGAPORE (THE BUSINESS TIMES) - Those SG50 notes that were supposed to be a special edition? Well, there's now >too many of them.
Despite the long queues which formed when they were first issued, demand turned out to be underwhelming, or on the >flip side of the coin, supply was overwhelming.
BT has learnt that only 40 per cent of the SG50 notes have been issued since they were unveiled last August by the >Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS). Of the 20 million pieces of the S$50 notes and 75 million pieces of the S>>$10 notes printed, about six million pieces (close to a third) of the former and 32 million pieces (less than half) of the latter have been issued, going by data obtained from MAS.
說到錢幣， 讓我想起兩年前去Marina Bay Sands那裡經過一個錢幣展覽 Coin Fair, 看到很多人在那裡拿出稀有的錢幣來買賣。
有些是因為號碼稀有 例如 111111111111， 或 2222222222222222 等等。。。
然後看到一張數目驚人的鈔票， 這是整整 一百兆啊 。。
然後就突然變成了半個 billionaire 。。。 哇！ 原來要變billionaire 就這麼簡單而已。。。
