July 2012 Postings

July 25, 2012 - Honduras 1994 and 1996 prints (20 and 50 Lempiras).
20 Lempira, Dated 12,12,1996 P73d
  
July 15, 2012 - Trinidad and Tobago One Dollar L1964 P26c. Bought this note as uncirculated condition. Unfortunately, this is not the case, I can only say, at best is between EF to aUNC.

July 12, 2012 - Namibia 2012 Full set. Here I have posted a full set of Namibia notes released in 2012. Whilst we all know that this is a newly released, not all notes are imprinted with the year date of 2012. The N$20 note has a year date of 2011. The 2012 issues also see the change in the main designs. Previously Kaptein Hendrik Witbooi appears on all denominations. In this new series, the first 2 notes (N$10 and N$20) bear the portrait of HE Dr Sam Nujoma with the remaining series have the portrait of Kaptein Hendrik Witbooi.This set of notes is very well designed.

July 7, 2012 - Bangladesh 60 Taka. This commemorative note was issued to celebrate the 60th Anniversary of the Language Movement 1952-2012. Bangladesh was formerly part of Pakistan (aka East Pakistan or East Bangal) since gaining independence from the British in 1947. The official language of Pakistan is Urdu whilst the majority of the people in Bangladesh speak Bangali. The purpose of the Language movement was to have the Bengali language recognised as an official language in Pakistan. Such recognition will enable the Bengali language to be used as official language in all government affairs etc. After years of conflict, the central government relented and granted the Bangali as an official language in 1956. Bangladesh gained it's independence in 1971 after a brife civil war with Pakistan. This note was released on 15.2.2012 and the Languague Movement Day is celebrated on 21st of February in Bangladesh. The note was sold individually with the folder sold as optional.

July 4, 2012 - Latvia 50 Latu 1992 P46. This is the first and only 50 Latu issued since the country gained independence from the Soviet Union in 1991. Not sure why this is the case. Perhaps this is not a popular denomination to the people of Latvia or too many initially printed.

July 2, 2012 - Guernsey £20 Commemorative Dated 2012. This is a commemorative note issued to celebrate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee (1952-2012). I believe this note was issued on 31.5.2012 and thus the second issue after the Royal Bank of Scotland 10 Pounds. The design of this note is the same of the current circulating £20 (released in 2009 and signed by Bethan Haines) with the following exceptions:-
1) The prefix of this note is QE60 (Queen Elizebath's 60th Diamond Jubilee);
2) Additional text of "On the Occasion of the Diamond Jubilee of Her Majesty the Queen" is added just under the heading 'The States of Guernsey";
3) The commemorative Laurel Weath with additional wording (1952-2012) commemorating this special occassion is added on the bottom of the note; and
4) The reverse design is still the same as previous issue.
This note is also signed by Bethan Haines and is printed by De La Rue, a company originally started by a Guerneyman Thomas De La Rue in the 19th century. Only 150,000 pieces are printed. As Guernsey has a small population of just over 65,000 (estimated 2011), and given that this is a £20 note, I would say, plenty for everyone.

July 1, 2012 - Malaysia 4th Series of Banknotes Collectors Premium Set. This set, together with the polymer set of RM1, RM5 and the paper note of RM20 folders were first released to the public on 22.12.2011. These are collectors series, all with matching prefix/serial numbers, but with the exception for the RM50 piece. This note has a prefix of AAA. I am not sure why they didn't use the same AA prefix, after all the design of this note is similar but not 100% the same as those first released in 2007 ie without the 50th Independence logo. A total quantity of 50,000 premium sets were made available to the public at RM300 per set. Issue price for the other folders are RM15 for the 2 polymer notes set (RM1 and RM5) and RM30 for the RM20 paper single note. It should be noted that this is also the first time a RM20 has been issued since 1989. Previous issues of the RM20 were not popular among the locals. I wonder if this has changed. A viewer asked me back in January 2012 where was my new Malaysian RM1 and RM5 polymer notes. There, here you are. Better late than never!
