D/86 200592 D/86 201592 D/86 202
D/87 200592 D/87 201592 D/87 202
D/88 200592 D/88 201592 D/88 202

Looking at the above, each column contains 8 prefixes, starting from D/85 to D/92.
The first 3 digits in each column is the same:
column 1 starts with 200, column 2 -201, column 3- 202, column 4- 203, and column 5- 204.
The last 3 digits are the same throughout.
Did you realize this serial number arrangement is completely different from the Ship $5 40-notes?
On the front, the $10 note features a barter trading vessel Palari.
The Ship $10 note is very well designed with it’s distinctive red colour. The graphics blend in perfectly to make this a good looking note. The embossed print effects of this note on watermarked paper allow you to feel it between your fingers. Visually it has a pop-up effect and it’s so much more interesting than the current polymer portrait series which feel completely flat.
On the reverse of the note, a view of public housing and the map of Singapore.
Question: Do you know which other notes bear the theme “Public Housing” and the map of Singapore?
