    It'll be quite difficult to find. Old notes have high value. Try Bras Basah

    thanks people for the heads up.

    i'm only interested in LOCAL rare currencies,
    like the $20, plastic $25 and $50, and the orchid series.
    full set is the best.

    i've tried ebay but i think their prices are ridiculous.

    not interested in coins though.

    it's not for me, it's a gift for xmas, so value doesnt really matter.

    thanks for the heads up.
