Autoriti Monetari Brunei Darussalam, AMBD advises members of the public to be cautious and not to be deceived when receiving any information from unofficial sources, particularly on matters relating to monetary policies, currency issuance, and the regulation of financial institutions.
A-MBD made the reminder as it recently found that there have been false information circulating among members of the public via social media and text messages concerning the issuance of BND1,000,000 (One million Brunei Dollars) and a certificate supporting the currency. Hence, members of the public are advised not to disseminate any unverified and false information.
AMBD would also like to remind members of the public that it is against the law to possess forged and counterfeit currency notes and bank notes under the Penal Code (Chapter 22), punishable upon conviction with a fine and imprisonment up to a maximum period of 10 years.
More information on Brunei Darussalam's currency notes and coins can be obtained through the AMBD App, which can be downloaded from the 'AppStore' and the 'Google Playstore'; or AMBD's website at http://www.ambd.gov.bn; or by following AMBD on Instagram at @autoriti_monetari.
