March Postings 2014

http://seabanknotes.blogspot.com/2014/03/malaysia-10-ringgit-2004-replacement.html1 March 2014 - Malaysia RM10 2004 Replacement prefixes. It seems that I have all prefixes except "ZF". In all 6 notes posted here. The design of this note was first introduced in 1997. The it was revised in 2004 with a vertical holographic strip added to the right side of the note. In all I believe seven replacement prefixes have been issued with this design, but I am still missing the prefix "ZF".

http://seabanknotes.blogspot.com/2014/03/malaysia-1-ringgit-2000-p39-replacement.html2 March 2014 - Malaysia 2000 RM1 Replacement notes. A collection of RM1 replacement note except prefixes ZAA and ZAC. I find this series confusing. According to the so called "experts" prefix "ZW" is a replacemnt prefic but then "ZV" is not. If this is the case how do they decide which "Z" letter is replacement and which is not? I am aware that not all central banks provide such information to outsiders, and neither to the company that printed the notes would do that too. Well, if they say so, then it must be koret!

http://africabanknotes.blogspot.com/2009/12/mauritius-1967-prints.html 7 March 2014 - Mauritius 1967 series Queen Elizabeth ll series. Here I have added the 1967 series of 25 and 50 Rupees to my previous post. All notes bear the same signatures, with catalogue references of P30c, 31c, 32b and 33c. These two notes that I have added are rather large size notes and getting them in UNC condition, like without any folds or creases can be a bit tough unless they were kept by dealers/collectors when it was first released.

http://seabanknotes.blogspot.com/2014/03/philippines-100-pesos-20th-anniversary.html10 March 2014 - Philippines 100 Piso Commemorative. The note was issued to celebrate the country central bank's 20th Anniversary of Banko Sentral Ng Pilipinas 1993 - 2013. The story continues. It appears that 'almost' every reprint of notes, especially the 50 and 100 Piso are printed with overprint commemorative text and logo. It seems the Central Bank will issue notes to commemorate whatever events, institutions, building or any occassions they see fits.

http://seabanknotes.blogspot.com/2014/03/cambodia-100000-riels-2013.html15 March 2014 - Cambodia 100000 Riels 2013 Commemorative Specimen. This note was issued to celebrate the 60th Birthday of King Norodom Sihamoni. King Sihamoni was born in 1953 and was the eldest son of the formal King of Cambodia, King Norodom Norodom Sihanouk. He became King of Cambodia on 14.10.2004 (Coronation 29.10.2004). The note is printed with the word "SPECIMEN" perforated on the note. This is still the largest denomination circulating in the country.

http://asiabanknotes.blogspot.com/2014/03/bahrain-2007-issues.html16 March 2014 - Bahrain 2007 4th series. This full set of banknotes was released on 17.03.2008 from half dinar to 20 dinars (five notes in total) P25 to P29. This is the second strongest currency value in the world, only second to the Kuwaiti dinar. All notes are printed of the same size at 154mm x 74mm. It is interesting to note that the world top three currencies are all from the Middle East (Gulf States) - Kuwait, Bahrain and Oman. Who needs a credit card when you have such strong currencies in your pocket?

http://seabanknotes.blogspot.com/2010/05/singapore-two-square-dots-note.html17 March 2014 - Singapore Goh Chok Tong. I have re arranged my collection of current Singapore notes and to post them all by the signatures of the Chairman of MAS. Here, these are all the notes both polymer and paper that I have signed by the then chief Goh Chok Tong. I do not have a full set as I am still missing two x $1000 notes with one diamond and one triangle and of course the mighty heavy weight note, the $10,000 piece. Maybe I should borrow someone's scan and post it here as a showoff!

http://oceaniabanknotes.blogspot.com/2014/03/french-pacific-territories-2014-new.html22 March 2014 - French Pacific Territories 2014 New Series. A complete set of 4 new notes released on 20.1.2014. These notes replaced those previously issued since the late 60s. The four new notes comprises of 500, 1000, 5000 and 10000 Francs. These notes are not as colourful as those previous printed, and needless to say, previous designs are much nicer. The sizes are also much smaller too. Well, this is only my personal opinion. The French Pacific Territories comprises of French Polynesia, New Caledonia and Wallis & Futuna with a total combined population of approx. 540,000+/-. The issuance of banknotes for the French Pacific Territories region is the responsibility of it's central bank, the Institut d'émission d'Óutre-Mer (IEOM), which is based in Paris France. IEOM was founded in December 1996 and empowered to issue banknotes and coins for the French Pacific Territories. The CFP (aka Franc) was first introduced in 1945 due to the weakness of the French Franc after the end of the Second World War. The currency code of the CFP is XPF and it's value is pegged to the Euro at 1 XPF = 0.00838 Euro cent. A whole set is worth €138+ face value.

http://seabanknotes.blogspot.com/2011/09/singapore-tharma-shanmugaratran-2012.html23 March 2014 - Singapore Tharma Shanmugaratran. This is just an update of what I have from Singapore with notes (both paper and polymer) signed by the MAS Chief Tharma Shanmugaratran. I am still missing few pieces excluding those high value notes such as the $1000 and the god oh mighty $10000 piece. I expect more to be printed especially for the lower denominations at a later date until he is replaced.

I have also updated those normal issued notes signed by Lee Hsien Loong since 2002 from BCCS to MAS. I am not sure if these are all the notes bear his signature as I have no knowledge as to if other notes were printed like the  $100 note and higher when he was the boss of BCCS and MAS. Commemorative notes signed by Lee Hsien Loong are posted separately.

http://seabanknotes.blogspot.com/2014/03/cambodia-2000-riels-commemorative-60th.html28 March 2014 - Cambodia 2000 Riels 60th Independence commemorative. The country was occupied by the French between 1867 to 1953, except briefly between 1941 to 1945 which the country was then under the Japanese occupation during the Second World War period. Independence was granted to the Cambodians on 9.11.1953 and this note was issued to commemorate it's 60th year of independence.
