Discussing Collecting Banknotes

Paper Money on MA-Shops

At first, I want to formulate the hope that everyone is healthy and will be safe in these impressive times. Corona has influenced the live of all of us, mostly negatively. I hope that everyone will find the strengths to do the right things everyday during this crisis.

A light during these times can be our passion. We can work with our collection, search for new coins and banknotes, do research about our interests and read a lot of books about it. Did you know a lot of numismatic books can be found on MA-Shops? To find these books, just follow the link: https://www.ma-shops.com/shops/search.php?catid=415

In this blog I will show some highlights in the MA-Stock, in particular the banknote highlights. Collecting banknotes is a popular part of the numismatic world. The last decade it became more and more popular especially among the younger part of the collectors. I believe the reason for this development is the variety in banknotes. Every banknote is like a painting. An album full like a gallery. It takes another kind of effort to enjoy a coin or coin collection with all the same types but different years.

Banknotes like a painting:

1000 PIASTRES 1951 French Indo-China

8,250.00 USD

Pk 84s1 and serial number O.000

A wonderful and well centered example of this highest denomination, featuring elephants and water buffalos and the four faces of Bodhisattva Avalokitesvara in Angkor Wat. Extremely rare.

5000 Francs 1938 France ”Victoire”,

1,945.00 USD

Signature title: LE CAISSIER GÉNÉRAL.,Statuette in rotogravure.

Woman with Victory statuette and olive branch at center.

Rare 50 Gulden 1943
The banknote I want to discuss is this rare 50 gulden 1943. A rare banknote in a typical and highly possible recognized design. This issue is part of the so-called Netherlands liberation issue. It was necessary for the liberation forces during the second world war to carry a currency into the country that was not related to the oppressor. The issue was printed by the American bank note company at the direction of the Dutch government that was in exile. The style seems related to the dollar banknotes. On the front you can see a portrait of queen Wilhelmina. On the back the crown symbol on the back.

50 Gulden 1943 Netherlands Wilhelmina

2,115.00 USD

Catalog: M.98-1

I think MA-Shops is the biggest platform in the world that offers so many banknotes from reliable sellers from all over the world.
