Malaysia 2008 St John Ambulance Coin Card

***Yet another 'crappy' Malaysian coin card that was not a 'wish list' item thenbbut now an item whose price has spiked 6 or 7 folds.
So what they said about not being able to predict the future is true after all even if you have the world's biggest crystal ball!
And for the Proof Sets for this issue, they have totally disappeared from the surface of this planet if you so wish to put it that way as you can no longer see them being offered for sale, & if you do once in a blue moon, you would wish you had bought them way in 2008 or wished that you haven't sold them in the first place, like I did.

Malaysia 2003 NAM Non-Aligned Movement Coin Card

***This was a coincard that nobody wanted as early as 3 years ago but that was then & now is now as what was, then, crap has now turned into glittering gold for each piece is now selling for way above 100 bucks.
Definitely taking a contrarian position even in the numismatic world seems to pay off & what a pay off if you have them in large quantities.
These days, most if not all Malaysian coincards have the the so-called total 'Authorised Mintage' indicated at the back of each coin card but for this issue, that has been left out.
Does that tell you that the total mintage in fact could be just a few thousands or even a few hundreds? That nobody will never ever know even if you have the biggest & roundest crystal ball in front of you.

Malaysia 2012 $100 ZA Replacement

***These are 100 pieces of the latest RM100 ZA Replacements that no one seems to want or rather should it be nicely put it that no one seems to be able to afford, after all, this is the highest deno Replacement.
Would today's crap turns out to be tomorrow's gold? Of course, that would left to be seen and how long would it take for crap to turn into gold would be subjected to what is considered as crap & what is considered as gold.

Malaysia 2012 Solid Number AGP 6666666

***With the learned Malaysian collectors now willing to pay a bomb for the latest RM1 Polymer Solid Numbers' banknotes, would the price for the previous series RM1 Solid Numbers banknotes spike upwards too?
After all, the former is in polymer wherelse the latter was printed on paper, so, what's the bloody big difference as both carry the face value of RM1.
At least if one gets tired of the one printed on paper, you can roll it up like a cigarette & pretend to fag it & get high with it if you want to but you can't do the same with the one on polymer, unless you want to be the freaking first person  in the universe to do so.

Malaysia 1985 $20 UZ Replacement

***Extremely unbelievable that this $20 Malaysian Replacement is currently commanding a transacted market value of above RM1,000 each. Unbelievable but true.
And with its price now hitting the ceiling,  ironically, there is currently none for sale online.
Perhaps, the spike in its price is due to the $20 denomination's popularity as collectors have the notion that there are 'not many' $20 notes around & as such, that's why a hefty premium is given to this deno.
They all can't be wrong, can they? 1 million collectors cannot be wrong, can they?!
And maybe, that's also why the latest RM20 ZA Replacements are becoming 'scarce' or rather some assholes called it 'scare', because the same belief is being believed again by who else but the learned collectors.

Malaysia 1985 $500 ZX Replacement

***I am not the type of moron who generously uses the word 'rare' to describe this or that banknote, but I wouldn't stop you if you have the knack for doing that, as after all, it's you who would look like an imbecile as a result, not me!
All sorts of Malaysian Replacements have been labeled 'rare' by various parties but as far as I am concerned, there are only 3 RARE Malaysian Replacements that I can think of and the one featured here today is one of them.
A very simple reason is that many of you folks out there have never even seen one before, not to mention to have the rare privilege of touching one. And above all, you don't even see them in running numbers.
As such, no need to look up in the dusty dictionary what the word 'rare' means as by now you would have got the drift what 'rare' stands for.

Malaysia 2011 $10 1 Brick 1000 Pieces Uncirculated

***A brick of the previous Malaysian RM10 note, now superseded by the new much more attractive series.
These 1,000 pieces are meant to be sold in some distant future but looking at things, it's better to spend them than to have them locked up for, say, 20 years, & then, had them sold for twice its value as by then, inflation would have eaten into its value 3 or 4 times more, meaning if I can buy 1 stick of fags with it today, most probably, in 20 years time, I could only get a quarter of a stick.
Regardless whether it's the First or Middle or Last Prefix, it's better to have this money spent, after all, they are indeed meant to be spent.

Malaysia 2011 $10 ZG Replacements Uncirculated

***And of course, these are the RM10 ZG Replacements and according to grapevine and most Smart Alecs, this is the last of the previous RM10 Replacement series.
And according to grapevine & the very same Smart Alecs, this is a rare issue.
I can't freaking help it but whenever anyone tells me this or that is rare, I don't like it as I have been burnt so many times buying so-called 'rare' items which later turned out to be as 'rare' as the garbage in front of your neighbor's house!
I can never forget the day when I bought the 'rare' RM1 ZD Replacement at RM500, only to see it sank in a heap to RM3 a piece, & as such, anything that doesn't move or walk but is tagged as 'rare' scares the shit out of me.
Anyway, I got these from Datuk Raymond Chang & he still has stacks of these I suppose, after all, everyone knows he is currently the undisputed Malaysian numismatic market-leader.

Malaysia 1985 $500 Uncirculated Banknotes

***These are the banknotes that 2 or more years ago no one wanted as there seem to be 'a lot' of them, then, so said they.
Today, their market price has more than doubled & there goes the more than truthful saying, 'yesterday's shit is today's gold.'
And this is where the market-leader in banknotes grading co & which is non-other than the universe-famous PMG, comes in.
And in the event if these banknotes are graded anything less than PMG 65 by those American folks, I will definitely go hang myself.
