TAKE A NOTE

Friday - - Humour -

Call­ing all nu­mis­mat­ics. Check out the world’s big­gest ban­knote – it is se­ri­ously big, big­ger than an A4 sheet of pa­per to be pre­cise – that is on dis­play at the Nu­mis­bing show­room in Deira on Al Mak­toum Road. The note is one of the 1,000 notes that were printed by the Philip­pine Cen­tral Bank in 1998, to mark 100 years of in­de­pen­dence and has the face value of 100,000 pe­sos (about Dh9,000). At the time, each note was sold to col­lec­tors for 180,000 pe­sos (Dh15,500). Since then how­ever, its value has gone up to Dh146,000. From 10am to 7pm, Sun­day to Thurs­day. Free en­try, call 04 295 2578/056 2345 056 for de­tails.
