Thank you, CitationSquirrel, ScotsGreyhound, jbuck, and CelticKnot for your kind comments!

I primarily collect French coins, not banknotes, but there are a few notes from the first part of the 20th century that I find particularly attractive and this is one of them. I have had my eyes on this one for a while, and finally got around to acquire it. There are a few others I'm glancing at too, so eventually they may show up here...

Lebanon 1000 livres (1988) & Bangladesh 60 taka commemorative note (2012)

Bangladesh have been quite prolific in issuing Commemorative notes in recent years for some reason, their paper is not the best quality either.
Numerous controversies have arisen in recent years too, with cyber thieves stealing up to $100m through hacking Bangladesh Bank, printer failures & some regular issue notes having wrong spellings.
Also the wrong number in watermarks suggesting that 'old paper' was re-used. Fairly lax security

ETA - if you look at the watermark area on the 60 taka note, you can clearly see a '50' instead of 60!

- I read similar grumblings over the latest Philippine banknotes while there this past February (from a local paper on their recall of the limited 1998 Commemorative 100,000 & 2000 P Commemorative notes). The tone of the article was that the gov't's desire to recall these expensive commemorative notes was like a "scam." Very odd read which suggested the move was strictly political (didn't like the design/celebration of the commemorative note). Anyway- it made me want to pick up one so I got this 2011 200 P note (P214 celebrating 400th anniversary of pontifical & Royal University of St Tomas).


BTW: one of the things the newspaper writer was most upset about was the "inaccurate" map of the Philippines on the back of the latest 2010 series + the fact the govt announced they'd switch to polymer about 5 years ago (& it still hasn't happened).

Macedonia 200 Denari showing a clay tablet showing Caleb and Joshua who helped Moses in their wanderings and eventual entry into the Promised Land.
Text from the Macedonian National Bank: "This scene depicting images of the soldiers-heroes Joshua and Caleb, illustrates an episode from the Old Testament (The Book of Joshua), showing the moment when he stops the Sun over Gibeon and the moon over the valley of Aijalon, before the great victory of the Israelites over the Amorites (The Book of Joshua 10:12,13)."
The reverse shows an "art element of the front facade of the Šarena (Aladža) Džamija in Tetovo, one of the most attractive monuments of architecture and art from the Ottoman period in the Republic of North Macedonia. It is believed that the mosque is built in the 15th century."
