August 15, 2012 - The State of Jersey £100 Specimen commemorative note dated 2012 signed by Laura Rowley (Treasurer). This note was issued on 1.6.2012 to celebrate Queen Elizabeth The Second's Diamond Jubilee 1952-2012. This £100 (P37s) is the largest denomination currently issued by Jersey. I am not sure how many pieces were printed for this specimen issue, but it's good to have one in my collection.
August 10, 2012 - Northern Ireland Ulster Bank 20 Pounds note. This is another reprint of the current series and is dated 1.1.2010. This must be a very popular denomination of note in Northern Ireland as the last 2 reprints were dated 2007 and 2008. Like all previous modern issues, this note carried the security water mark of the bank's name. I personally find this security feature quite unique. Always enjoy collecting notes printed by this commercial bank.

August 6, 2012 - Northern Ireland Northern Bank Ltd Twenty Pounds. This is a reprint note and is dated 2009. The design of this note has changed slightly as compared to previous 2006 issue, including the deletion of the bank's 'N' logo. The Bank was established in 1809 and has since been bought and sold a few times. The Danske Bank (Danish Bank) took over the company from the NAB Group as at 1.3.2005.

August 3, 2012 - Taiwan 2011 $100 Commemorative 3-Uncut Sheet. This is the reprint of the first issue which was sold out. The first print was released on 6.1.2011. The reprint was due to popular demand by the locals as well as overseas collectors. The design of the note is still the same, however there are some minor changes on the design of the folder, including the colour of Dr Sun's portrait on the front cover. Issue price was T$500.

August 2, 2012 - Malaysia 2012 Forth Series circulating set. This set was issued on the 16.7.2012, with the exception for the 50 Ringgit circutaling note (non commemorative), which was first released on 15.7.2009. The set comprises of 1, 5, 10, 20, 50 and 100 Ringgit. Both the 1 and 5 Ringgit are in polymer and for the first time since 1989, the 20 Ringgit is re introduced. I personally find that the colours for the RM10 and RM20 are bit confusing. I predict that they may change the colour for the RM20 at a later date, as traditionally, the RM10 is in red. A set of postage stamps were also released to celebrate this special occassion.

August 1, 2012 - The State of Jersey £100 Dated 2012 signed by Laura Rowley (Treasurer). Here you are, it's been a long time waiting for this note. This is the third Diamond Jubilee note and was issued on 1.6.2012 to commemorate Queen Elizabeth The Second's Diamond Jubilee 1952-2012. This £100 is the largest denomination currently issued by Jersey. The cost for producing this issue was £256,000 and without knowing how many pieces were printed, I can't tell what would the the cost per unit. The law to issue this note was passed in Jersey Parliament with 34 votes in favour and 8 against. The image (portrait) of this note is called Equanimity and was designed by Chris Levine. Whilst many commemorative stamps and coins were minted for this special occassion, surprisingly only three notes have been issued for this Diamond Jubilee celebration, being The Royal Bank of Scotland (£10 note released on 23.5.2012), and then followed by Guernsey (£20, released 31.5.2012).
