Malaysia 100 Ringgit note with fancy serial number sold for 76,000 Ringgit

 

A note similar to the one shown above but with serial number AA8888888 was sold at a recent auction in Malaysia for RM 76,000, about USD 20,470. The face value of RM 100 is only about USD 27

The number eight is a homophone for the word “prosperity” in Chinese, hence its popularity. Twin prefixes and solid numbers are the most sort after by collectors.
