Netherlands Antilles 5 Gulden P15b. This note was issued in 1984. I somehow have very little luck in getting banknotes from that part of the world!
July 23, 2011 - Hungary 500 Forint PNL. According to my old SCWPM, this note was not listed yet. This is currently the lowest denomination issued by the Hungarian government. I enjoy collecting European banknotes with the exception of Euro, mainly due to it's value. With EU ever expending, eventually more and more countries will convert their national icon into Euro, and I though it's better to get some before it's too late. More Hungarian notes to come later.
July 20, 2011 - Sri Lanka 2006 Prints. Here I have updated few missing 2006 notes. However I believe that I am still missing the 500 Rupee piece. These notes are now been replaced by the recent 2011 new issue.
July 15, 2011 - Australia $10 Commemorative P49a. This is the world first polymer note commemorative issued in 1988 to celebrate the 200th years of European settlement in Australia. This is an uncut strip of 4 with selvedge and only 1,673 of the strip of 4 were issued to the public and the note is dated 26.1.1988, which is also a public holiday (Australia Day). Unfortunately as my scanner is not large enough, I can only scan the sheet showing 3 1/2 of the notes. Apart from this, it also released a block of 4 for the same note too. This note is now 23 years old! As far as the single note is concerned, they are plenty available in the market, especially in UNC condition.
July 10, 2011 - Scotland, Bank of Scotland. This is a ten pounds note with date 18.6.2001 (P120d). This note is signed by John Shaw, the Bank's Governor and George Mitchell, Treasurer and Managing Director. The letter prefix of this note is EU, which is also the last prefix of this 2001 series.
July 8, 2011 - Dominican Republic. This is a 20 Peso Oro specimen polymer note. This note is dated 2009 and was released to the public for circulation on 1.7.2010. This note depicts General Gregoria Luperon in full military uniform. General Gregoria was the 20th President of the Dominican Republic and was in power between 1879 to 1880 (less than a year). He died in 1897.
July 3, 2011 - Philippines - 200 Piso commemorating the 400th Anniversary of University of Santo Tomas 1611-2011. 10 million notes issued, as well as 400 sheets of 2 Uncut, medallion and postage stamps too. The commemorative note issued is the same design as the previous 200 piso note (not those new notes announced in December 2010) and it features the Quadricentennial logo (tongues of fire forming the letters U, S and T emanating from the Main Building) on the dorsal portion. The University of Santo Tomas is the oldest university in the Philippines and was established on 28.4.1611 by the archbishop of Manila Muguel de Benarides. The UST is situated at Sampaloc, Manila, The Philippines. This note was released on 21.1.2011.
July 1, 2011 - Barbados, a complete set of 2007 notes from $2 to $100 all signed by Governor Dr Marion Williams. All notes are dated 1.5.2007 and the SCWPM references are from P66a to P71a. Nothing much has changed since the designs of these notes were first issued in the 70s. Whilst these notes are still circulating in the country, the $2, $5 and $10 have now been replaced by the Governor's signature Dr Delisle Worrell, and won't be long, we hope to see the rest of the series for Dr Worrell too.
