Straits Settlement $1 1925


My latest acquisition on the net at a cost of about US$113. This $1 Straits Settlement currency is a replacement for the coin on my last entry. Interestingly the first notes do not have portraits. The first portrait is that of the 1935 $1 which will feature King George V. I am not sure how widely this was used in Brunei as the $1 coin British Trade coin and King George V coin remained quite popular even though it was demonetised.

A good buy, it should worth more than what you paid for.
