Brunei's $100 1989 Issue

Not many people remember this $100 note. This is the first $100 note to be 'slimmed' down after the old $100 notes of the first Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah and Sultan Omar Ali Saifuddien. I had a hard time searching for this particular note. The $50 is easily found but not the $100. I was told that this particular note was a problem note as too many people liked it including those who are not supposed to be issuing it. A new $100 note had to be found soon after this note was introduced. So if you happen to find a genuine one keep it as it is becoming quite rare. If you found one which is not, report it as you would be guilty of the law even for keeping it even though you did not produce it.
