RM1 'Z' Series

Many collectors have raised a same question, that is, whether all the RM1 'Z' series are the replacement notes? Some say yes and others say no. Many of them have shared their valuable opinions in this matter. One thing is for sure that ZA, ZB, ZC, ZD, ZE and ZW series are the replacement notes. These replacement notes were released from time to time in concurrent with the normal circulation notes.

Nowadays, the market is flooded with all RM1 'Z' series. Are these replacement notes? I have posted an article in regards to the RM1 ZG replacement note in my earlier discussion which I have received many responses from collectors that these notes are indeed the normal circulation notes.

Various RM1 with prefix Z

So, is that true? The fact that Z series notes besides as mentioned above are normal circulation notes is based the amount of volume that these notes are released. Many have share their views that it is abnormal that replacement note will be issued in this matter as it is normally scare and hard to obtain. What say you?

No mention of ZF in your interesting article, do you think this is also a replacement note? How about ZX ZY ZZ .. we have yet to seen this thus would this be also replacements since ZW is confirmed to be a replacement note?

Hello Jack,
Somehow the prevailing RM1 replacement notes series is pretty confusing and a nice topic for further debates. Replacement collectors here are used to the first few prefixes and not others. As long as no verifications from the authorities nothing is so sure at the moment. Nice site you have here. Thanks

I was quite surprised when I went to change RM1 for angpow and was given RM1000 worth of the RM1 note all with ZS prefix. Also I have seen very common Z prefix RM1 notes in my daily business collections. Therefore, must be ordinary
