Iceland - 100kr, 500kr, 1000kr x 2, 2000kr and 5000kr. Nice note especially for the 5000kr. The latest 1000kr has an interesting story behind this. Modern Iceland banknotes are usually issued with 2 signatures. Following the financial melt down in Iceland recently (2009), the government sacked the entire Central Bank board of directors and hired a Norwegian Banker S. Harold Eygard to head the bank and unfortunately this only lasted for 6 months. During his short tenure, a 1000kr was issued with his (only one) signature on it;

Samoa - 2 tala ND2009 polymer with prefix AAN. I am not sure what happen to prefix AAM. I have few spares of this note in uncirculated condition. Contact me for exchange if interested. I can spare you more than one piece. Pick Catalogue used to label them each with its own reference numbers until recently;

Sri Lanka - 1000 rupees commemorative folder issue. Issue price 1500 rupees. I bought these at 1,700 rupees each. Two hundred rupees extra premium is fair I believe. It's better than paying double the issue price to dealers. Only 10,000 folders released to the public. For those who are interested in military hardwares, this is a must to collect. There are not that many modern banknotes issued with so much firing powers. I have two spares which I can offered for exchange if interested. Any offer is most welcomed.
