Malaysia 2011 $50 ZC Replacements. Have They Been Released?
***Withdrawing some cash from the ATM machine yesterday was one of the best things that I have done this entire week.
I withdrew a sum of RM2,000 from Citibank's ATM machine yesterday and surprise, surprise, among the notes that were churned out were 11 pieces of the RM50 note with the prefix of ZC and as a bonus, they were the low numbered ones with 4 zeroes.
It pays to have a sharp eye and also pays to have some arse luck, I suppose!
Does that mean that ATM machines are going to flood us with these ZC Replacements?
My good fellow collector buddy has offered me RM70 for each piece and seeing no sense in keeping too many, 4 pieces were passed on to him, 1 each for him, his wife & his parents, I suppose.
5 more pieces have been sold to Datuk Raymond Chang at the fraternal price of RM65 because he told me he wants to keep them for posterity and that he would like to display them at his now famous numismatic outlet at the Maju Junction Mall in downtown KL.
By the way, I went back to the same ATM machine today hoping to be 2nd time lucky, but I guess I have run out of my arse luck.
