GREAT BRITAIN - Five Pounds 2015 (2016) new Polymer note first prefix AA01. A controversial note as it has now confirmed by Bank of England that the new $5 notes contain traces of animal fat in the form of tallow. Because of this, not many people are happy with this. Tallow fat is a rendered form of beef or mutton fat. The company that supplied the polymer materials for the Bank of England notes is Innovia Security, which is also the same company that supplies the same materials to all Australia polymer notes. In fact, Innovia Security provides polymer materials to 78 denominations in 24 countries. It is hard to please everyone, not even with money!

Stock Take - My collection has now reached a record of 4,995 pieces (as at 30.11.2016) excluding duplicates or extras. However based on my expectation, it is unlikely that I will hit my target of 5,000 pieces by 31.12.2016. The best I can achieve is 4,999 pieces. So close and yet so far away . . . . .

30.11.2016 = 4,995 pieces

MALAYSIA - RM50 nd2016. This is the first note issued with the new bank governor Muhammad Ibrahim. This is the first note bearing his signature. It is believed that LS is the first prefix of this issue. I believe more notes with his signature will be releasing in the next few months, hopefully in early January or even before.
