Comments

Issued by the Board of Commissioners of Currency, Singapore (since merged to the Monetary Authority of Singapore), as part of the Singapore Portrait Series currency notes, and was issued into general circulation on September 9, 1999. The SG$10,000 and the B$10,000 (of Brunei) are the world's most valuable banknotes (that are officially in circulation) in terms of purchasing power, compared to the other widely used banknote, the 1,000 Swiss francs banknote. On July 2, 2014, the Monetary Authority of Singapore announced that it would stop printing $10,000 notes starting from October 1, 2014, to reduce the risk of money laundering. Singapore has now officially stopped producing the S$10,000 banknote and has thus begun the process of withdrawing it from active circulation. The Monetary Authority of Singapore said that the notes will likely remain legal tender until all the notes slowly get returned as they get damaged.
