Paper Money-World | AC coin$

The Potosí silver mines, the attraction of the Spanish conquerors until the first years of the 1800's brings a language of Bolivia's history to a bittersweet stop. Mining activity was the support of the national economy and somehow it is revered by this 500 Bolivianos banknote's reverse.The note is well preserved regardless of its circulation. The military and statesman it bears on the obverse is Colonel Germán Busch who had a shortlived presidency from 1937 to 1939. Not many Bolivianos bills of this denomination ran around for a long period of time, so having an item like the one I show here is a plus to my collection.

The Cuban Peso ran alongside the Spanish and other South American currencies since the XVIth century. However, this nice item presented here belongs to the second republic period from 1958-1960.Heavy monetary reforms by the Cuban authorities in 1960 onward made adjustments on the way, purpose and requirements paper-money was used. Items with historical features like the one shown became scarce in the island as the way of life moved towards the socialism structure.Even though, a patriotic banknote like this is sought after by historians and collectors alike.*Dedicated in sympathy after recent accident event in Cuba, may God give the affected people unity and faith.

1946 Haiti "Une Gourde" Banknote

Paper Money-World | AC coin$

Since its first introduction in 1813, the currency of the Republic of Haiti is the "Haitian Gourde" and its paper-money versions have gone thru changes according to the status of all financial transactions in this Caribbean sister of the Dominican Republic and the national debt against several countries.In April 1919, the Gourde was pegged to the US Dollar as a guarantor of bank transactions, however, this accords were disengaged in 1989 and the Haitian Gourde adopted a "floating value" rate against many currencies in the World. Inflation, internal/external debt and poverty with a lack of supporting resources have placed the Gourde in a low demand currency. This nicely printed banknote is nevertheless a beautiful example of my collected bills.

1949 Philippines One Peso Banknote

Paper Money-World | AC coin$

The Philippines became a US territory in 1898 as part of the outcomes of the Spanish-American War. In 1902 currency was reissued within the islands as the Federal Government started organizing the administration of its territories.Earlier years, the Philippines Peso was pegged to the Islands' natural resources but after the Japanese Invasion and subsequent eviction by allied military forces in 1944-45 the US started running printed banknotes with US approval seals conditioned to the Islands' reconstruction. As part of this historical effort, the US Forces introduced the afamated Victory Peso Series 66 and a reprinted version of it circulated with the features and the Central Bank of the Philippines lettering on its reverse, its dimensions are 161.9 x 67.4 mm, quite a large print.This banknote is an issue from 1949 as the Philippines turned towards a US Commonwealth country previously granted in 1946.. However, it should be noted that by Federal Government authorization, the Victory banknote has been circulating since early 1922 in the Philippines Islands.

1964 Dominican Republic 1 Peso Oro Banknote

Paper Money-World | AC coin$

The actual Dominican Republic's currency is the Dominican Peso. Within the early 50's thru 1978 the Peso Oro was in use as it was pegged to outdated gold standards from various countries.In 1962-1964, the year banknotes from the kind I show here started being issued, the Nation was trying to ascertain its political turmoil after the military "coup d'etat" of 1963. My note is a traditional bypass from historical reknown figures as presented on its obverse with the portrait of Patriot and Founder Duarte and other features on its reverse to face security issues. This was the only time (1962-64) that the "Banco Central de la República Dominicana" issued the "Un (1) Peso Oro" bill which makes this piece rather scarce.Yet, as it has been to places all around the Dominican Republic and, passed on from hand to hand and bank to bank, this bill reached my collection after being at many destinations, with the value of circulated paper-money. Enjoy.

Paper Money-World | AC coin$

The currency derives its name from the Hindu Sanskrit "rupiakam" or silver. First introduced in 1946 by nationalists, its confirmed use and circulation started in 1950. The Bank of Indonesia certifies all the currency of the republic.The Rupiah is divided into 100 "sen", however, notes and coinage in sen denominations have been rendered obsolete due to inflation.The symbol for this currency is "Rp" and banknotes of high denomination starting in 100 Rp and 200 Rp are common up to 5000 Rp. 50's and 10000's are not often used.My note still has a crisp well preserved texture and coloring. Beautiful landscapes are briefly shown on each of the bill's sides.
