Anyone know a place where they sell like special collector edition notes as in money?
Something like they sell an old ten singapore dollar for collectors to buy?

Clifford Numismatic & Collectible Centre

The following are coin dealers - whether or not they handle notes I don't know...

edited so it made more sense (found some more so the initial prelude didn't read right.

Are they worth anything?

I have a few old $20 and $50 notes (bird series). Worth holding on to till later (as in grandkids generation) or selling now?
Just me

Speaking of $20 bird series notes, my wife and I were presented a set of 5 crisp notes in a running sequence as a wedding gift.

Jackpot! I thought. How many people could possibly still possess any bird series $20 notes anymore nowadays, let alone mint condition ones. How much would they be worth? 4 digits now, maybe even 5? And 6 digits in 20 years?

Was in Chinatown Point one day, and there was some sort of coin collectors fair, so I went to take a peek.

Apparently, my $100 worth of $20 notes was worth, not much more than that at all.

Dazzle, I don't think they are worth enough to be selling now. Or at any point be worth more than the niceness of simply owning them. Probably need something much more rare.

I think the lady who gave us those notes probably still have tons of them sitting around to give away as gifts.

It's a nice touch though.
