Jeram assemblyman Mohd Shaid Rosli made waves on social media when he made a Facebook post offering up to RM3,000 for a particular RM1 bank note, which he hopes to add to his collection of old Malaysian bank notes.

In his post, Shaid said that he is specifically searching for RM1 bank notes that were signed by the sixth governor of Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM), Tan Sri Dr Ali Abul Hassan Sulaiman. He also shared an image of the note that he is looking for, stating that he is willing to pay between RM1,000 to RM3,000 for them, depending on the condition of the note.

“If you happen to have the one with the same signature as the ones in the picture, I want to buy it for RM1,000. If it is in good condition, I would buy it for RM2,000, and if the note is in mint condition and looks just like the picture below, I would buy it for RM3,000. Please inform me if you happen to have it, thank you,” said Shaid in the post that has since been removed from public viewing.

As of yesterday evening, the post had gained more than 1,000 likes and over 2,000 shares on the social media platform. Several social media users who collected bank notes also responded to Shaid with pictures of their own collection in the comment section, although some jokingly questioned the authenticity of the post.

Shaid then followed up with a second Facebook post to share more about his hobby as a bank note collector, stating that he has been collecting old Malaysian notes for more than 20 years. He also said that the hobby has the potential to generate income, citing his friend – who earned over RM10,000 per month through the hobby – as an example.

“My focus is on our nation’s old money only, unlike others who collect old money from different countries. Also, not many know that three years ago, Bank Negara issued RM60 and RM600 notes as well. The price is estimated to be around RM50,000 nowadays,” Shaid added in his second post, which also contained images of several old Malaysian bank notes that Shaid had collected over the years.
