Brunei $1 1925

People sometimes ask me whether I can do the old money series. I said why not? So, this week is the week beginning with the money that was used in Brunei after the First World War.

Brunei by 1906 stopped producing its own money. It relied extensively on the Straits Settlement Dollar which was issued through the SS Office in Singapore. So if you were living in Brunei then, and if you rich enough, then you will come across this $1 note. Mind you this $1 note was worth a lot then. Bruneians were still using 1/4 cent coins. So $1 must have been equivalent to a month wage to labourer.
