Malaysia 2010 RM50 LAST PREFIX SY

***A Consecutive Pair of the previous RM50 banknote bearing the Last Prefix of SY in Choice UNC condition.
This note was only issued around 2 months ago when the new current RM50 notes were already long into circulation.
Grapevine has it that last 2 notes bearing this prefix, i.e., 9999999 & 10000000, have been offered a princely sum of RM10k by a collector. A ridiculous sum that I will never pay....

China 2000 100 Yuan Polymer I Replacement UNC

***3 Consecutive Pieces of the now much sought-after 100 Yuan I Replacement Banknote from China with the vignette of a prancing dragon issued way back in year 2000.
Apparently, only 10 Million pieces were issued which is a rather small quantity for a country the size of China populationwise!
The official issue price then was only 118 Yuan. What is the current market price for this issue? Will it astound everyone by reaching unchartered heavenly heights like what the 1980 monkey stamp has been doing?!
