Brunei $1 1935

In 1935, King George V was in reign. In fact in 1935, King George celebrated his Silver Jubilee. He was crowned King in 1910 when his father King Edward VII died.

This is the first Straits Settlement dollar which had the portrait of the King. Since the money was used throughout the Straits Settlements, it was also used in Brunei as part of the 1906 law. The most interesting thing about this $1 note is the colour. It is blue. It is from this colour that the blue $1 for Malaysia, Singapore and Brunei was derived from. Our $1 blue was derived from a 1935 decision by the Straits Settlement government.
