Malaysia New $50 currency note

Do not know how true, but I got this in my mail:

Bank Negara Malaysia has issued a new RM50 note, the second highest denomination in a new design Malaysian currency notes series. The new series incorporate new security features and retain some of the existing security features to deter counterfeiting. The new series will circulate alongside the existing series until the existing series are gradually phased out.

Another plastic money? I hate how the current RM5 felt and will prefer any crisp paper bill anytime. Then again the new polymer notes are made to be more durable.

Anyone got them in their angpows this year? :-)

Thanks and sorry folks, this seems like another prank. :( After some research, which I should have done earlier, it was found that the $50 bank does exist but those polymer notes were commemorative bank note to commemorate the Kuala Lumpur 98 - XVI Commonwealth Games on 1 June 1998. And the banknote is the first polymer banknote to be issued in Malaysia.

How come suddenly I felt like a silly goat?
