Would that be the dragon from Wagner's Siegfried, guarding the Rheingold?


@erafjel
Indeed you are right and I was wrong. I did a Google search and found this article https://www.schlossmuseum.de/sammlu...e-erzaehlen/ where it says that the dragon on the reverse indeed represents Fafner, the dragon from the Nibelungen saga.

Cool! I didn't know that, it just came to my mind when I saw that dragon guarding a pot of treasures, that it could be taken from the popular Nibelungen Ring.

@Caietan. That's a very rare Bolivia note. When did you buy it?

@ShareBear It was one of my first more expensive notes.
I bought when I started collecting in the mid 90's.
I paid 52 DM (about 32 US$)for it, together with the 50 Centavos (with error "Fiscal di Gobeerno") which did cost 43 DM (~ 26 US$)
95 DM was a lot of money then, but the banknotes fascinated me, and I don't think that I would get them today for that price.

Thanks, CollegeBarbers. I got the banknote a few years ago but I have been unable to find any more from the series. So I decided to add a couple of related items this year.

from the Boer War of all things.

But I was very impressed by the $20 "Dory" note from the Bank of Nova Scotia. I have seldom seen these!
