Here is a later example of the 10,000 shillings (£500) note issued by The East African Currency Board in 1951. This high grade example achieved a hammer price of £53,000 at auction.

Here is an attractive Straits Settlements specimen note printed ca.1919. The $10,000 note was the highest denomination of this series.

The S$10,000 was only used for internal Bank Settlements.
