Added this lot of currency into FETCHr’s collection. Was attracted by all the serial nos on the notes. Bought them from a local collector, whom like me, has huge collection of unique product and Arts.

Millennium 0000001

Received this from a local bank back in February, Year 2000.  In the letter that accompanied this note, its says I had won the bid.  It came on 08 Feb 2000, a day before Sean’s birthday.  It was framed up and hanged on the wall at the cottage for the last 15 years.  This would form part of FETCHr’s note collection.Singapore_Millennium_Note_0000001This is the only piece of the Millennium Note with serial number 0000001
The Millennium Notes were issued in year 2000 to commemorate the millennium. It was a limited edition issue with a mintage of 5 million, with serial number ranging from 0000001 to 5000000. Notes beyond the serial number 5000000 are Replacement Notes which was inserted into any of the defective notes in the range 0000001 to 5000000.


A star note is also a bank note that has an asterisk (*), or star, after the serial number. Many early issues carried the star in front of the serial number. These have been used by various countries around the world including Australia and the United States. In the US, the Bureau of Engraving and Printing inspects currency for printing errors prior to releasing notes into general circulation. When notes are discovered that have been printed incorrectly (such as having the serial numbers upside down, etc.) the misprinted “error notes” are replaced with star notes because no two bills within a certain series can be produced with the same serial number.[1] They are used to maintain a correct count of notes in a serial number run. By their nature, star notes are more scarce than notes with standard serial numbers and as such are widely collected by numismatists. Some of the highest prices paid for modern (post-1928) U.S. banknotes have been for star notes.

A star note was also substituted for the last note in a block rather than printing a note with a serial number consisting of eight zeros. This practice is no longer in use, as the highest range of serial numbers is now reserved for uncut sheets sold to collectors, so regular notes intended for circulation do not reach the final serial number in the block.

Scripophily is the study and collection of stock and bond certificates. A specialized field of numismatics, scripophily is an interesting area of collecting due to both the inherent beauty of some historical documents as well as the interesting historical context of each document. Some stock certificates are excellent examples of engraving. Occasionally, an old stock document will be found that still has value as a stock in a successor company.


Scripophily는 연구와 컬렉션 증권 인증서입니다. 고전학의 전문 분야는 scripophily 몇몇 역사적인 문서의 모두 고유의 아름다움뿐만 아니라, 각 문서의 흥미로운 역사적 맥락으로 인해 수집의 흥미로운 지역입니다. 일부 재고 인증서 조각의 훌륭한 예입니다. 간혹, 오래된 재고 문서가 아직 후계자 회사에서 재고로 가치가있다 것을 발견됩니다.



My Scrip-o-phily page on Facebook.  I have named it ” WorthlessStockCerticates “.  This is where I post articles or images relating to scripophily. Kinda like a bookmark of links to share with others whom may chanced upon the page but it will definitely serves as a very useful bookmark for myself.

This could be the start of a new hobby. Practitioners of this hobby call it scripophily, the word ‘scrip’ means ownership right and the word ‘philos’ means to love. I have put in more links to the site . Go check it out if you find it interesting.
