September 2011 Postings

September 25, 2011 - Cayman Islands 2001 C/1 series P27 and P29. Today is a very sad day to me, and not a day that I would like to remember or looking forward to. In order to remember this day, I though I post two more notes (nothing in particular). Here I have uploaded two  notes from the Cayman Islands. This is the 2001 series with $5 and $50. Missing in this series are the $1 and $10. The $100 was not issued for this series.

September 23, 2011 - Mauritania 2004 Prints. Here I have posted 4 notes, with demoninations of 100, 200, 500 and 2000 Ouguiya. Missing from this series is the 1000 value.
September 21, 2011 - Costa Rica 1000 Colones. This is a dated 24.2.1999 and has a Pick reference number of P264c. I got this note via exchange with a great collector from the USA. The condition of this note is uncirculated.

September 17, 2011 - Gibraltar 2010 to 2011 issues. Here I have posted the remaining of the Gibraltar new series of notes, which was first released on 8/7/2010 with the £10 and £50. The remaining notes were released on 11/5/2011, which also included the £100 hybrid note.A full set comprises of £5, £10, £20, £50 and £100. The obverse designs of this series are all the same, whilst the reverse features either a famous landmark of Gibraltar or a historical event.

September 13, 2011 - Jamaica 1987 Commemorative set. Here I have posted a set of 4 notes with denominations of $1, $2, $5 and $10, issued in 1987 to commemorate the 25th Anniversary of the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth The Second (June 2, 1953). Strange is that none of the notes have the portrait of the Queen to celebrate this special occasion. I supposed it's cheaper this way than to print new design of notes. Whilst I knowledge this set of notes are not rare, the one note that really caught my eyes is the $2 note which printed with the following words - "Out Of Many, One People". Now, you ask yourself, how true is that! All notes printed with this design ($2) have the same words printed on the reverse side of this note.

September 9, 2011 - Singapore $1,000. Today is the 12th anniversary for the release of the Portrait banknotes series. This note was first issued on 9.9.1999 and for the first time since 1967, the S$500 denomination was not included in the series, halleujah! This note is considered a high value note but not the largest in the land. This is a reprint and is signed by the country formal Prime Minister Mr Goh Chok Tong and this note is printed with tiny 2 triangles (underneath the word Government) on the back.

September 4, 2011 - Vanuatu 10,000 Vatu Polymer. This is the highest denomination of banknote currently circulating in Vanuatu. This note was issued in 2010 to commemorate the country 30th year of Independence from the British and French (30.07.1980). This note displayed here is a 2-Uncut sheet.

September 1, 2011 - A complete set of Cayman Islands notes all dated 1998. Whilst a full set of Cayman Islands notes usually comprises of $1, $5, $10, $25, $50 and $100, the $50 denomination note was not printed for this series. Four of the notes posted here are all with matching serial number. All these notes were acquired from a seller in Cayman Islands. The Cayman Islands currency is one of the strongest currency in the world. It's currency value is more or less pegged to the USD approximately at KYD1=USD1.25 or USD1=KYD0.80. No wonder the KY currency is so expensive to acquire.
