@walk2dwater: May I ask, what makes this Fiji P59 so special for you?

Not so much 'so special' but just a fair degree tougher than P-74b, like P-65a & b (which are even more challenging) they were released for a couple years. Most "GOVERNMENT OF FIJI" notes tend to be much harder to obtain than the later/plentiful "FIJI" series. It is a similar deal with the "Commonwealth of Australia" vs "Australia" series for that nation. While I'm happy with my note (it's high grade), but I know it is pretty common (like P-89, or the last 1993 $1.00) compared to the earlier "Government of Fiji" series.

I agree, I was lucky to find it in that shape (VF with a few stains and folds).

So far I have the $1 and $10 of the 1969 series (As you know the $10 is really stained - Kava?).

The 1971 series (1 signature, C.A. Stinson) is really hard - I only have the 50 cents!

Lovely and you know the Solomon Islands has released new notes in Polymer. Unlike most of the Pacific, they have had severe inflation (Okay most Pacific places have had some inflation).

Its about $5.50 Solomons to $1 NZ. Yet their largest note is still only $100 and coin is $2.

When the Solomon Islands $ was floated in 1977, it was parity with the Australian $.

Thanks @Princetane & I did not know that. That's too bad inflation has been so crippling for so many small nations. It must be tough on the people there. Thanks for sharing.

I bought this P-16 $20 at the start of 2021 & posted it in March. They're from 1986 & are really lovely to see (& still not too expensive, esp the $20):


and the $50:


-which have great designs & are large format but I still need to get the P-8 (or P-12) $20 featuring QEII. Every time I see one up for grabs it seems to get more expensive.

The designs are stunning, I love it when you get a series of notes and every denomination is the same theme.

Did you know that both Solomons and Papua New Guinea, when they started their banknotes in 1975 and 1977 only had notes at $2, $5 and $10 values (Kina for PNG). The $20s arrived at the beginning of the 80s and the $50 around 1990 ish (1989 for PNG), with $100s arriving in mid 2000s.

Similar for Fiji, top predecimal was 20, but top decimal note was only $20 and it was seldom used until 80s. Tonga started with notes from Pa' anga to 10 in 1967 and the 20 Pa' anga only came in 1984. Samoa started with 1, 2 and 10 Tala in 1967 as they resembled the old Sefulu Silini, Tasi Pauni and Lima Pauni beforehand. (10/- 1, 5), $20 was added in late 70s and $50 and $100 in mid 1990s.

Actually, that I did know that & its one of the reasons I prefer notes from the Solomon Islands, Fiji, Falklands & other small island nations. Typically, they don't add the higher denominations until the buying power of the lower denominations begin to fade. I know they don't issue as many higher denominations (compared to the lower denoms) but I also rather collect lower denominations since they're seldom stashed in Safety Deposit Boxes (SDB's) like the higher denominations.

Yaay! This arrived yesterday. I don't really collect Northern Ireland, except for the first issue notes, dated 6 May 1929 (and the earlier non-Kosher dates of Bank of Ireland).

This 20 fills a gap in my album left by my previous example which I swapped a long time ago for a rarer note. Nice to have the date back.
