THE WORLD'S FIRST GOLD & SILVER BANKNOTES

For complete sets of 30 pcs with album included is RM ????  ( Contact me for pricing ) COD Melaka.

Many sets were only partially completed (due presumably to the high investment cost in cash and time to collect the entire series,) thus the exact number of COMPLETE sets is unknown.

You will find many single notes and partial collections for sale, but very few COMPLETE the whole collections.

  3. Hi Pat,This Legal Tender Antigua Barbuda or East Carribean Dollars every $100 convert to American Dollar is USD $39.

    But this is a collector item so Many sets were only partially completed (due presumably to the high investment cost in cash and time to collect the entire series,) thus the exact number of COMPLETE sets is unknown.
    You will find many single notes and partial collections for sale, but very few COMPLETE collections.

    It took almost 3 years of diligence (1 banknote was released each month) to assemble this entire collection.

    For the price is hard to predict and it's up to buyer to decide,but i would say around $900 up to $1200 but it depend on the conditions both on notes and album..Cheers.

  21. I have a complete set of 30. No one ever mentions the original cost, but I bought my set in 1996 at a cost of $78.40 U.S. per note.

    My set comes with all 30 of the accompanying letters and invoices. I shudder every time I see a quote of $950 to $1,200 for the entire set that cost me three times that much 16 years years ago when gold was about $300 an ounce.
