PMG Offers Label Celebrating 50 Years of Singapore-Brunei Currency Deal

This label is available until December 31, 2017. A special label is being offered by PMG to celebrate the notes issued by Singapore and Brunei to commemorate 50th anniversary of the Currency Interchangeability Agreement between the two countries.

Paper Money Guaranty (PMG) is offering a special label for the $50 notes being issued by Singapore and Brunei to commemorate 50th anniversary of the Currency Interchangeability Agreement (CIA) between the two countries.

Note: This special “Singapore & Brunei CIA 50th Anniversary” label will be available until December 31, 2017. Notes will then receive the PMG Standard Green Label.

Established in 1967, the Currency Interchangeability Agreement has meant the Monetary Authority of Singapore and the Autoriti Monetari Brunei Darussalam accept each other’s currency, which has played an important role in strengthening the economic ties between the nations.

The $50 Singapore and Brunei commemorative notes feature the 50th Anniversary of the Currency Interchangeability Agreement logo, which has a purple flower on the left (Singapore’s national flower, the Vanda ‘Miss Joaquim’), and a yellow one on the right (a simpur, representing Brunei.) The flowers reflect the warm ties between the neighbors in Southeast Asia.

The Brunei $50 note features a portrait of Hassanal Bolkiah, who has been the Sultan of Brunei since 1967, while the Singapore $50 note displays an image of its first president, Yusof bin Ishak, who served in the 1960s.

The notes can be obtained at banks in Singapore and Brunei, and were offered through the Singapore Mint (www.singaporemint.com) in limited-run sets.

These notes can now be encapsulated with a special PMG certification label that features the Vanda ‘Miss Joaquim’ and simpur flowers found on the commemorative $50 notes. The label is available at no additional charge provided notes are submitted according to the special submission instructions below.
