February Postings 2014

http://europebanknotes.blogspot.com/2014/02/croatia-2012-issues.html1 February 2014 - Croatia 2012 Set. These are reprints of 2001 and 2002 issues. Only four notes were issued. The 5 and 50 Kuna were not included in this series. This is a complete set for the 2012 series. Given that Croatia is now the 28th member of the EU community since 1.7.2013, it is not sure if any new Kuna notes will be issued in the near future. The country is hoping to adopt the Euro in 2 to 3 years after becoming a member of the EU. It took the country 10 years before finally be accepted as a member of EU member. 

 http://asiabanknotes.blogspot.com/2014/02/kuwait-1994-issues.html5 February 2014 - Kuwait 1994 Full Set of 6 notes from quarter to twenty dinars. The world strongest face value currency, stronger than the Bahrain dinar, Oman Rial, Latvia Lat and the Euro and US Dollar combined. This is really one currency that no one should ever leave their home without it. Because of its strong value, the two lowest denomination notes are still in fraction denominations and they are also printed in small note size, including the one dinar value. This full set that I have uploaded are all have same signatures. All you need is just one full set. Chasing all signatures issued can easily break the bank.

http://hybridbanknotes.blogspot.com/2014/02/mongolia-20000-tugrik-2013-hybrid.html8 February 2014 - Mongolia Twenty Thousand Tugrik (Togrog) 2013 Hybrid print. This is a reprint of the 2009 issue with new date and new governor's signature. The design of this note is the same with no alterations or new security features added, I believe. This note is still the largest banknote circulating in the country. Since the early 2000, all Tugrik banknotes are printed with the year date on the back of each note. The 2009 note was printed with 'AD' prefix. This 2013 reprint has the prefix of "AF".

http://americabanknotes.blogspot.com/2014/02/jamaica-2-fao-1973-commemorative.html12 February 2014 - Jamaica $2 commemorative. This 1973 Commemorative note was issued (released in 1974) to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights 1948 - 1973. The design of the note is the same as those $2 first released in 1970 but with additional texts added on the reverse side of the note - "Universal Declaration of Human Rights 1948 - 10 December - 1973" and "Toward Food Education Employment For All Articles 23 - 26". This note bears the governor signature of G. Arthur Brown (1967-1977).

http://oceaniabanknotes.blogspot.com/2014/02/fiji-2000-dollars-millennium-2000-y2k.html14 February 2014 - Fiji $2000 Millennium Commemorative. If you collect the 2000 Millennium notes, then you will have to agree with me that this has to be the icing on the cake for all the Millennium banknotes collections. The release of this note (together with other Fijian coins and banknote) was first announced by the central bank on 22.09.1999. Fiji, back in the year 2000 was then the first country to see the new Millennium (now Samoa Western) and this note, together with the $2 note (1 million pieces printed), $5 Silver coin (mintage 10,000) and $50 gold coin (mintage 2,500) were specifically issued to celebrate this special occasion. The special about this Fiji $2000 note is that this is the highest face value of all the millennium notes issued. In fact, the value of this note is higher than all the face value of all other millennium notes issued combined. A total of 2000 pieces were issued for this denomination with serial number ranging from Y2K 0001 to Y2K 2000, and with such a low print, there is only one solid serial number note in this series. Obviously, you would agree with me is that the best note to have is either the first note or the last one for obvious reason. I have a feeling that these two notes are in the hand of VIPs in Fiji. In some countries, it's quite common that such notes are presented to VIPs as gifts or souvenirs, such as the Governor, President, Prime Minister etc. If you managed to get hold of such notes, then you are a very lucky person. In all, 16 countries/commercial banks had issued commemorative banknotes to celebrate the new Millennium. Most countries celebrating the millennium with one or two notes, however full sets were released by Belarus and Slovakia. In all, a total of 39 millennium notes issued. This Fiji $2000 is quite a large note measuring 110mm x 201mm.

http://worldpolymernotes.blogspot.com/2014/02/new-zealand-2012.html19 February 2014 - New Zealand $50 Polymer reprint. I am not sure if others were also released but this is the only note for the 2012 print I have. This is a first prefix note with prefix AA12 (2012). New notes of $10 and $20 both dated 2013 with new signature have since been released.

http://asiabanknotes.blogspot.com/2014/02/qatar-20072008-prints.html23 February 2014 - Qatar 2007/2008 Issues. A full set of the current issue from 1 Riyal to 500 Riyals (Hybrid) notes. The designs of these notes are similar to previous 2003 prints but with new signature and improved/additional security features. I have added both the 100 and 500 Riyals hybrid notes to illustrate a complete set. These two notes were previously posted to my Hybrid notes section.

http://seabanknotes.blogspot.com/2014/02/myanmar-10000-kyats-2012.html26 February 2014 - Myanmar (Burma) 10,000 Kyats 2012. This is the largest denomination circulating in the country. The note was first issued on 15 June 2012. The design on the front depicts the State Seal of Myanmar and on the back is the Mandalay Royal Palace Moat. The Myanmar currency remains weak to the outside world. As at the date of this posting, this 10,000 Kyats is worth just over US$10+.

http://seabanknotes.blogspot.com/2014/02/sarawak-1935.html28 February 2014 - Sarawak (now part of Malaysia since 1963) $1 dated 1935. In all my purchases, I seldom buy notes in any other conditions except uncirculated. I graded this note as Fair. Most collectors would agreed with me that to get this note in an uncirculated condition is not just hard but can be very expensive too. I bought this note because it was fairly cheap and also because I do not have one in my collection. There are no shortage of this note in such condition in the market. A slightly better condition of this can fetch more than 10 times for what I had paid for this note. This note is so worn out that it is in a very fragile condition.
