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.

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

Examples of the lower denominations entered circulation but the $10,000 appears to have been used only for inter bank transfers and as such would not have been available to the general public.
