Jeram State Assemblyman (ADUN) Mohd Shaid Rosli grabbed the attention of local netizens this week after he claimed that he’s willing to pay a large sum of money for a special RM1 note.
The special banknote has the signature of Tan Sri Ali Abul Hassan Sulaiman, the sixth Governor of Bank Negara, who passed away in 2013. He was the shortest-serving Governor, as he only served for a period of two years before retiring.
“Try and take a look at the RM1 notes that you have now. If you have one with the same signature, I’ll buy it from you for RM1,000. If it’s in a good condition, I’ll buy it for RM2,000. If the note is in perfect condition (as seen in the image), I’ll buy it for RM3,000,” he wrote on his Facebook.
Shaid’s post has since went viral, with over 2.3k shares on FB at the time of writing. The comments section has been flooded with many netizens chiming in by sharing photos of their old money collection with the assemblyman.
In a subsequent social media update, Shaid revealed to his friends and followers that it has almost been 20 years ever since he began his collection. As stated by the man himself, this hobby actually has a high income opportunity. He also included photos of his collection that he kept over the past decades.
Do you guys share the same hobby as Shaid? What do you guys collect? Feel free to share with us. :D
