Malaysia 1998 $2 Banknotes
***A very clear-cut case of 'today's the crapper, tomorrow's the world' for this RM2 banknote issued 13 years ago.
Just last year, a stack can be obtained for just RM300, as this series is a highly 'despised' series by collectors, but now, if you can't bring out at least RM550, don't even dream of taking a sniff at these notes.
That's how unpredictable the Malaysian numismatic scene has become whereby lots of banknotes from various series in Choice UNC condition have jumped multiple folds pricewise.
That's what is meant by 'Today's The Crapper, Tomorrow's The World", a phrase coined by none other than the newly anointed 'Pakar Numismatik Malaysia', His Venerable Datuk Raymond Chang.
