Transnistria - Trans-Dniestr or Transdniestria or whatever name or
spelling you want to use. Transnistria, a strip of land, is a breakaway
state that is located between Moldova on the left and Ukraine on the
right. Following the breakup of the Soviet Union empire, Transnistria
declared independence in 1990 and then fought a brief war with Moldova
in 1992 as it did not want to be part of Moldova. These 4 notes of 1, 5,
10 and 25 Rubles (full set) were released in 2014, celebrating the
nation's 20th Year of National Currency, the Transnistrian Ruble. These
commemorative notes were issued in separate folders and is limited to
2020 sets only. The designs for these notes are the same as current
issues but with commemorative text (1994-2014) overprint added. Here,
the four notes that I have posted are all have matching serial numbers.
The folders are printed on a A4 size and it's folded into 3 equal parts.
There are no plastic sleeve to hold the note on each folder, but
instead on the center of the folder there are have two U shape cuts to
allow the note to be "clipped" onto, if you want to. I personally
suggest that you do not do that as in the long run, the notes may get
damaged with an indented marks on the notes (both top and bottom edges).
I am not sure what language the folder is printed with (Russian or
Cyrillic/Moldovan alphabet) but there are no English to translate them.
The official languages in Transnistria are Russian, Romanian and
Ukrainian. Other than to a collector, the Transnistrian Rubles has
little or no negotiation value outside it's territory. Transnistria is
not a member of the United Nations and is not recognised by any of the
United Nations member state.

Paraguay - This is a commemorative note, issued to celebrate the country's Central
Bank's 50th Anniversary - Banco Central del Paraguay. The bank was
created by law on 25.03.1952. This note was issued in 2002 to celebrate
it's golden Jubilee. The design of this note is the same as previous
issued, except that commemorative texts were added to the note just
under the currency value of 1000 - "Cincuentenario del Banco Central del
Paraguay" (50th Anniversary of the Central Bank of Paraguay). This note
was released to the public as normal circulating type. This is a cheap note and it's making it interesting to collect them. I hope you have one too.

Gambia - This is a full set of notes which was issued in 2013. This set comprises
of 5 notes with denominations of 5, 10, 25, 50 and 100 Dalasis. The
designs for these notes have been in circulation since 1996. In 2015,
the country released new series of banknotes which included two new

denomination replacing the 25 Dalasis and a new 200 Dalasis value. In
