-thanks guys! & now for a more low key/inexpensive pick up:
P-118c, a 5 Pesos from the beautiful island of Dominican Republic:


The island is gorgeous but the note...well...nice, with the flowers on the back, but I do not find dams (nor the hydro tower/power lines) all that attractive.

The simplicity of the Falkland 50 Pence & 5 Pound reverse designs is incomparable to most currency (IMO).

Thanks a lot 'hfjacinto.' Sometimes I like to share some of my personal collection (such as those).

Here's more low hanging fruit, P-193b (1963) from Paraguay:

Series C Fijian Notes added to my collection

2 types of $2 note



Showing the myth of racial harmony in Fiji - 5 races (Indian, Melanesian, Polynesian, Chinese and White).



Special Millenium note showing then President and more of that Racial Harmony theme with map of the Date line passing through Vanua Levu.

Two types of $5 note


Early type with orange brown colour


Later type with brown colour - done as the new $50 note had a reddish orange colour that could be confused with it.



Reverses of both notes showing the Colour differences. Nadi airport is shown, the main tourist gateway into FIJI!

The two higher values (I don't have the $50 the highest value)





$10 note showing a raft and lagoon scene





$20 note showing Parliament House and the Reserve Bank of Fiji building.

For those of you wanting more detailed information on these notes - see this thread. Pages 9 to 11.

Very interesting thread on the currency from Fiji "Princetane." I read all 11 pages!

Thanks for sharing the link as I had no idea you did all that research, summaries of your findings for that country. I took the links to the minimum wage site & could easily visualize how the currency probably become a class thing early on. I felt your treatment of the progressive note design/motifs, with greater emphasis on indigenous values, fascinating. You've really motivated me to address some serious gaps in my Fiji collection (especially Series A). Sadly, I let this nation fly under my radar when I started collecting world 3 years ago but I'm enjoying trying to catch up (though my pocket book has been paying the piper!)

Just wondering about a comment you made on the Y prefix. Could you elaborate which denomination & if you know how scarce these notes are?

Thanks in advance.
BTW, here's the 1996 $50 with the J prefix I posted a while back:



I usually buy between $1 to $20 as a rule of thumb but occasionally I will pick up the odd higher denomination. This one really caught my eye.

Love the $50, its a Series C, later one with varied serial number height (The serial number is same height on 1996 ones), your note is 2002 and has the Narube signature.

The Y prefix referred to the $2 note of the Millenium series called Y2K and the Y meant Year. It was a one off for those notes.

Y I think was also used as a replacement, star note prefix too, but I am not sure as I am fresh to Fijian notes.

Meanwhile feast your eyes on these beauties from Fiji's neighbour - Tonga





2008 - $2 and $5 notes showing Rugby games (Although Tonga got walloped 106 to nil by the All Blacks lately) and $5 shows a flat stone platform from early days.





The $10 shows the Royal Cemetery in which all kings are buried along with Royal Princes and Queens of Tonga. The currency is called a "pa 'anga" but is written as a $ and known as the Tongan Dollar in English.

These 3 notes show Siaosi Tupou V who died in 2013, however modern notes show the same designs, but the current king Tupou VI.

I have also bought the 4 lowest values of the 1995 series showing King Taufa'ahau TupouIV who died in 2006. These are very beautiful and elaborate notes.

Ironically printed by Thomas De La Rue and Sons, like Fiji - but unlike Fiji, the English language only features briefly on the Reverse. Almost everyone in Tonga speaks Tongan as a first language and only some speak English as well.





The 1 and 2 pa'anga notes show the elaborate Obverses and the backs show a village scene on one of the more mountainous islands (Vavau, Kao, Eua?). The 2 pa'anga shows women making Tapa (Bark cloth) and painting it outside a traditional Tongan structure.




The 5 and 10 Pa'anga also feature the rich Reverse with purple and blue colours. the backs show the Haa'monga trilition, a menhiric arch on Tongatapu from at least 800 years ago and the 10 shows the Royal Palace of the Tupou Dynasty, this building dates from the 1880s and is still used today.

If I can dig in my pockets further, I can buy the 20 and 50 Pa'anga of each series too!
