Malaysia 2012 $10 First Prefix AA 0050001

***Actually, this is an old story, an old story because this is already more than a year old now and in the world of numismatics, a year is a freaking long time, but there is no harm to feature a banknote that one is already tired of, just like there is no harm putting old wine into a shiny brand-new bottle, sozusagen, right?
Of course, there is nothing to trumpet about as after all what's the freaking big deal with a banknote bearing the First Prefix of 'AA' as every motherfreaker by now would have had a similar note in their possessions unlike the days of yore, when no one is on the look-out for the First Prefixed banknotes, but then, then, most First Prefixed banknotes do not start with the Prefix of 'AA.'
As such, the current First Prefixed 'AA' notes are nothing to gloat about but rather, are meant to be spent when one goes shopping.

Malaysia 2013 National Museum Proof Coins

***A freshly issued set of proof coins commemorating the golden jubilee of the National Museum and of course, this is an extremely popular issue and that's especially so by looking at the long crowd that queued to buy this issue.
This is also a very popular issue because it so happens that there hasn't been any proof coin issues for one year long now and one year is definitely a long time in the numismatic world as lots of numismatic collectors have lots of dough and they don't know what to do with it while waiting for new commemorative issues to come out. Thus, any new issue, regardless of the theme, will be gobbled up.
And talking about museums, of course, the most famous of all should be The Louvre (Musée du Louvre) in Paris as that's the home of 'Mona Lisa' and one might need a week of more to cover every inch of the museum. But of course, there are no Mona Lisa proof coins to buy, even at the 'mini-shop' at The Louvre.
