How many "2"s on a $2 note?

Postby Baron Greenback » Wed, 01 Mar 2006 2:48 pm

Can you find six "2"s on a $2 note - exculding serial numbers & the word "two" (just the number)


Hint: there are 4 of them on the side with the face


NB - I am only counting one 2 in the hologram silvery thing

4 "2" are the easy ones big 2s on each side which you can see directly.

one on the shiny hologram.

minimum one "2" on the thin vertical strip which is embedded inside the paper. It is more than one.

So there will be more than six "2" on the $2 note.

nope nothing to do :) so I am killing time before a 5pm meeting.

I was walking down Orchard Road one day when someone form BenQ was selling stuff & had a mic & was asking the same question, I found 6 "2"s & won a little ball. Hurrah!

It actually works for other notes as well - there are 6x "10"s on a $10 etc (same place if you need another clue)

Ahh ok I see the "2"s on the vertical strip of silver, make that 7 "2"s then (if we only count one of them - I think they are only on the newer notes).

Obviuosly the last one is the hardest to find

(clue - it isn't the right way up, but is on the side with the face)

no - keep looking, the one on the hologram was one of the original 6, you found loads on the vertical strip on the back which we can say is number 7.

I've got 1 here:

Above the hologram silvery thing, name of Singapore are written in 4 laugages right?
Above the 4 laugages, there's a thin straight line made up by fine repeated wordings.
What's written there?

Heehee, try harder, maybe you can try using a $50 or $100 notes, they are bigger.
You will be very surprise that they can actually print that out clearly.
This is also part of the counter fake measures they took.

Those working (or living) near adelphi can pop by this 'coin collector' shop and see the huge $ printout to check coz it's very clear.
I cannot remember...is it Republic of Singapore?

They are repeating of "BOARD OF COMMISSIONERS OF CURRENCY SINGAPAORE" for some old notes and "MONETART AUTHORITY OF SINGAPORE" for new notes. :P
