Singapore $10,000 - The Highest Value Banknote

Singapore is one of the two Southeast Asia countries (besides Brunei) that issued the highest value banknote in the world. The highest value means its absolute value which is approximately US$6800 but not its denomination value. In term of the highest denomination value, recently the the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe has issued a new 10 billion dollar note (worth only US$20) on 19 December 2008, one of the hyperinflation countries in the world.

The first $10,000 banknote of Orchid series issued by Monetary Authority of Singapore

Singapore first introduced its $10,000 banknote as the highest denomination of its Orchid series which was issued on 29 January 1973. The note has a dimension of 203 x 133 mm. It is one of the highest value currency in Asia. On its subsequent banknotes, the second (Bird) and third (Ship) series, this $10,000 banknote was continued to be introduced in 1980 and 1989.

The fourth series of $10,000 banknote was introduced on 9 September 1999. It was designed in gold color with the front features the portrait of Yusof Bin Ishak. The back features the future direction of Singapore economy, one of which is knowledge-based and technology-driven.

The forth series of Singapore banknote with the face value of $10,000 printed in gold color

We are now in the new era of technology, I sometimes wonder the effectiveness of the such high value note circulating in the market. Does anyone really use it to pay bills in exclusive shopping mall? The answer might not be favorable since we are all surrounded with the easiness of cheques, credit cards and online banking. Perhaps, it intended to give businessman an alternation to hold the real money instead of playing with only figures.

No this is not used because no shop will have change for it. It is used for example when closing your bank account and transferring money to a new account.

I am allowed to come and go from Changi Airport with 30000 Singapore Dollars, without fuss. with 3 bank notes folded neatly away in my small card wallet, the thieves and muggers have no idea that the man in shabby shorts ia a multi-millionaire.

ramadhan said...

i have one bundle of 10000 of sing dol yuauf bin ishak series. i wonder if anybody could help me to cash.

Singapore should discontinue this denomination. A person could buy a bunch of those and smuggle them into the country. All it takes is 1,000 of those taped to someone's body and a successful walk past airport security to smuggle 6.8 million dollars. 100=$680,000. Also, this denomination attracts counterfeiters. Someone could counterfeit this denomination multiple times and sell them for US currency.

Gabriel Leung said...

Seriously, what the hell?? A 10,000SGD (7000USD) bank note?? I can't fathom any practical uses for such a note, at least not in a world where wire transfers and credit cards are the norm.

Interestingly, the swiss franc also have high denomination, 1000.-, roughly 1000 US$ in value.

It is very widely used. I must say it is also very widely accepted and crime is low - so my parents used to take 1000.- home and spend it in the supermarket (here are you 920.- change!) to have cash during the month.

Nowadays still many people pay cash...

Cold_hard_Cash said...

On the contrary, it is quite common to see the $10k note used by the rich at luxury retailers and gamblers at casinos in Singapore. For some reason, many private individuals don't like credit cards, so they carry the S$1,000 and $10k note.

You will definitely be extra careful of course, but it feels just great having it in your wallet!

Kemala Atmojo said...

Can we cash it now? Or just circulate between collectors?

it's used for laundering money

Anonymous said...

to ramadhan & malaikat alien : are you sure you have the genuine singapore $10,000 notes? i assume that the bundle that you have is valued at S$1,000,000 of the orchid series, come along with "certificate of authenticity" bearing the notes serial numbers in sequence etc. Now look at the water marks featuring a lion head and the descriptions on the certificate of authenticity. if the the water marks are blurred or smudged and the note series does not match the certificate description i.e. bundle of notes is of orchid series but certificate description mentioned economic series, i am sorry to say they are FAKES.

Hari ini sedih denger kelugan beberapa spg masalah gaji desember baru akan dibayar januari tahun depan karena mereka ga bisa tahun baruan tanpa gaji. Ironis
Dari sini terlihat betapa egoisnya management seharusnya sbg ujung tombak penjualan maka para spg justru harus didahulukan pembayaran gajinya san tunda gaji kantor pusat. Atau jangan jangan para boss besar ga tau bahwa perusahaan lagi cash flow problem
Jdi ingat dolo jamannya bareng Yanarko dan Heru, saat kita warisin perusahaan ini dari yvonne, kondisi cashflow merah 5 milyar alhasil kesepakatan internal kita dahulukan bayar gaji spg kemudian gaji kantor pusat kemudian nego hutang dengan supplier agar dikasih tempo agak panjang. Hanya setahun aja susah, setelah itu kondisi pulih. Liat kondisi yg ada hari ini saya ga yakin bisa pulih 2 tahun, itupun harus ditangani management superman yang harus hapus 1 generasi manager tolol yg bercokol disama

Singapore banknote is not the highest value by a long way. There are still about 300 US $10,000 dollar bills in circulation and are legal tender (if in pristine condition they are worth ten times that figure).
The daddy of banknotes that I know of are the British GBP £1million note and the GBP £100 million pound note.
The £100m banknote is generally held by the Scottish banks in order to back-up banknotes that are issued in Scotland.
