Front design: Passenger Liner Chusan

Serial Number Configuration: 

This Ship $100 28-in-1 uncut sheet has 7 rows and 4 columns.

The serial numbers are arranged as follows.

1st column     2nd column     3rd column     4th column
840 090          840 790           841 490           842 190
840 190          840 890           841 590           842 290
840 290          840 990           841 690           842 390
840 390          841 090           841 790           842 490
840 490          841 190           841 890           842 590
840 590          841 290           841 990           842 690
840 690          841 390           842 090           842 790

All notes share the prefix A/38.

The first note on the top-left corner starts with the serial number 840090. The serial number of the note below increases with an increment of 100, consecutively to the last note at the bottom-right corner that ends with 842790.

This arrangement is different from the Ship $2, $5 and $10 uncut sheets.

The “30th anniversary” overprint appears on the 1st, 4th and 7th row, on alternate notes.

The “100 Years” overprint appears on the 2nd, 3rd, 5th and 6th row, on alternate notes.

So, how many “30th anniversary” and “100 Years” overprints are there?

The Ship $100 note is without a doubt a very beautiful note: distinctive colours and themes, large sized, majestic and intricately designed.

The banknote was released to the public in 1985, that’s 27 years ago. The passenger liner on the front has probably gone to a metal scrap-yard and Changi airport has transformed from a “garden” (as depicted on the back of the note) to Asia’s busiest sky-hub; and it has begun to build its fourth passenger terminal two months ago. SIA’s Boeing Jumbo 747 Big Top has all been retired years ago with the introduction of the A380s.

Time flies but history is permanently “etched” on a banknote.

新加坡一百元船舶系列28张连体钞-第二部

这张新加坡一百元船舶系列28张连体钞由于其宏伟的设计和稀有的特性,具有较高的历史意义和收藏价值。因此我做了第二部给它更充分的介绍。

这张连体钞的发行是为纪念新加坡货币专员委员会一百周年新加坡金融管理局三十周年纪念而发行。连体钞上加印了新加坡货币专员委员会一百周年和新加坡金融管理局三十周年纪念的标志。在新加坡纸币上“加印”是相当罕见的。

产品规格:

  1. 由新加坡货币专员委员会发行(BCCS),发行于1997年7月10日。
  2. 尺寸:: 661 x 547 mm
  3. 由新加坡财政部长胡赐道博士签名。
  4. 所有纸币都有特别钞票序号A/38 84xx90 。
  5. 所有纸币与84开头,90结尾。
  6. 原包装附带证书和木盒子。证书编号和钞票结尾号码不相同。
  7. 限量发行100张。
  8. 品质:未流通及完好无损。

正面主题:客轮舟山号

反面主题:新加坡樟宜机场

序列号和号码排列设定:

这$100元连体钞有七行四栏共二十八张。

钞票序号和号码按如下方式排列:

第一栏      第二栏      第三栏      第四栏
840 090     840 790     841 490     842 190
840 190     840 890     841 590     842 290
840 290     840 990     841 690     842 390
840 390     841 090     841 790     842 490
840 490     841 190     841 890     842 590
840 590     841 290     841 990     842 690
840 690     841 390     842 090     842 790

所有钞票序号同为A/38。

从左上方第一张开始号码为840 090.。下一张号码加100,连续,从上至下,从左至右, 至右下方最后一张为842 790。

很明显的,这一张$100元连体钞的钞票序号和号码排列于$2元,$5元和$10元是不一样的。

新加坡金融管理局三十周年纪念的标志,加印在第一,四和七行,行内交替。

新加坡货币专员委员会一百周年的标志,加印在第二,三,五和六行,行内交替

那请问,三十和一百周年的标志,到底有多少个?

 

这是一个张非常漂亮的钞票。色彩和主题独特,居有吸引力。作为一张大钞,它的设计精致,内容充分,印刷精美。

发行于1985年-转眼27 年了!正面的客轮可能以轮落废铁场。樟宜机场以从一个“花园” 转变成区域航空枢纽,第四机场客运大楼也在两个月前动工。新航波音珍宝747也全部退役,改由空中巴士A380替代。

时间飞逝,时过境迁,但历史永久的“铭刻”在钞票上。
