The Value of Brunei Money

Many people asked me what is the best book to get if you collect paper money or coins?

The answer to that depends on which country's money you are collecting. But if you are focused on collecting Brunei's currency, then the best book to buy is this one - the Standard Catalogue of Malaysia, Singapore, Brunei Coin and Paper Money.

The catalogue is produced by a Mr Steven Tan and as you can see it is in its 19th edition. Steven is almost 73 years old today and had been in the business for the last 50 years. He is one of the most experienced person in today's numismatic world.

If you happen to have the old Brunei money, the catalogue priced it as follows:

'Begawan Series' (uncirculated)

$1 is now worth RM 160
$5 is RM 360
$10 is RM 450
$50 is RM 1,600
$100 is RM 2,200

'Hassanal Bolkiah 1st series'

$1 is between RM20 to RM42 depending on the year of production
$5 is RM 120
$10 is RM 175
$50 is RM 450
$100 is RM 800 to RM 1,200
$500 is RM 3,000 to RM 3,500
$1000 is RM 5,800 to RM 6,300

'Hassanal Bolkiah 2nd series'

$1 is RM 9 to RM 15
$5 is RM 35 to RM 50
$10 is RM 60 to RM 80
$50 is RM 280 to RM 300
$100 is RM 430 to RM 600
$500 is RM 2,400 to RM 2,600
$1000 is RM 4,200
$10000 is RM 32,000

If you happen to come across any of Brunei's old paper money, you know what to do. Don't spend it! They are worth more than their face value.

Hello, I would like to ask if we did have such currency, where could we go to exchange it into the currency which is in circulation in Brunei currently?
