Singapore $20 Bird Series Concept to Actual

These two letters first appeared in the local newspaper, The Straits Times, around about mid December 1973 and it would take another 6 years before the actual note was issued into circulation.                                                     

10 December 1973


                  18 December 1973

About 6 years later.........................

extracted from The Straits Times dated 4 August 1979
