Shops selling old notes/collector notes

Postby carlsum1986 » Sun, 19 Sep 2010 5:29 pm

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?

Here are two. The first two don't have a website that I'm aware of, the rest - websites and the addresses can be found there.

Clifford Numismatic & Collectible Centre
#02-45 Peninsula Plaza, High Street, 179098, Singapore
p: 63373898,62231044,62249192 f: 63373872

Far East Stamp & Coin Centre
#04-48, High Street, 179098, Singapore
p: 63396808

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.
