November 1, 2011 - Brunei 2011 "D" Series. Here I have posted 3 polymer commemorative notes all issued on the 18.7.2011. These notes were released for circulation to coincide with the celebration of the Sultan of Brunei's 65th birthday (dob 15.7.1946). These notes replaced the "C" series polymer notes which was first released in 1996 (still legal tender). Only 3 notes were released for this special occasion. It seems that nowadays, Central Banks around the world have a habit in releasing new banknotes to commemorating special events even there are no overprints or additional special texts imprinted on the notes. I have few spare sets for exchange at face value if interested.
