One million pieces of commemorative Brunei $50 notes and two million pieces of Singapore $50 notes can be bought at face value from tomorrow.

They will be available at the branches of nine retail banks in Singapore, including the three major local banks as well as the Bank of China and Maybank. Banks here, like those in Brunei, will distribute a set of the two notes, with a complimentary folder.

The maximum number a person is allowed to buy each time in Singapore is five sets, as well as 10 pieces of the Singapore $50 commemorative note.

Both the notes can be used in any cash transaction in Singapore.
