I came across the 2008 $1 note during Hari Raya Aidil Fitri (the Muslim festival to mark the end of the fasting month). During this month, many families give out money to the children who come visiting their houses. What I did not realise was that the 2008 is new as the ones before this was the 1996 and the 2007 series. It took an email from my friend Kai before I realised that I got the 2008 series.
Anyway, here is the scan of the 2008 Brunei $1. The note remained the same except with this 2008 printed at the obverse of the note.
