Afghanistan 10,000 Afghani Banknote - UNCIRCULATED
Afghanistan 10,000 Afghani Banknote
The Afghani is the official currency of Afghanistan, and the 10,000 Afghani banknote is one of the highest denominations of Afghani money. In circulation since the early 90s. A rather rare banknote, the 10,000 Afghani is highly coveted by collectors all around the world.
Afghani banknotes have been in circulation since 1925, but were first introduced in smaller denominations of 5, 10, and 50 Afghanis. Every few years, the denomination numbers increased. In 1939, the Bank of Afghanistan took over control of paper money and concurrently began issuing notes of 2, 5, 10, 20, 50, 100, 500, and 1000 Afghanis. In the late 50s the 2 and 5 Afghani banknotes were replaced by coins and in 1993, the 5000 and 10000 Afghani notes were introduced into circulation.
With a color scheme close to that of American currency, the Afghanistan 10,000 Afghani banknote sports a colorful face of green, pale pinks, and shades of blue. The design features a Mosque on the front, and an ornate stone Gateway in a nature scene on the back. Other designs include writing along the borders (on front) and the inscription “Da Afghanistan Bank” (on back).
Before the U.S. declared war in 2001, political parties and warlords distributed duplicate Afghani banknotes with no regard to serial numbers which led to the Taliban Bank announcing it to be deemed worthless.
China 100 Yuan Banknote
China 100 Yuan Banknote
China’s latest 100 yuan banknote sports a sleek yet simple design meant to maintain the major moments, places, and people in the history of the country holding onto some of the defining features of previous versions of the money. Issued in late November of this year, the newest note comes with significantly upgraded security features and various other changes that make it nearly impossible to counterfeit yet easier for machines to read and process.
The 100 yuan banknote is known as the largest denomination of China’s currency and has been in circulation for over 60 years, with the first series debuting in 1948. At the start, this note was made from easily-damaged (and counterfeited) paper, and portrayed a simple design. It originally came in 12 denominations, the highest of which was 50,000 yuan.
The 2015 version the 100 yuan includes a color scheme of rich, deep reds, pale pinks, and variations of pastel orange and gold. The “100” on the note is drawn with color changing ink that shifts between green and gold. Chinese Leader Mao Zedong appears as the water mark to the left of the note, and just below it is another “100” that is only visible when held up to the light. On the back, there is a depiction of the Great Hall of the People made with a textured pattern.
One of the new 100 yuan banknotes has come with a rare printing mistake that could it make it worth 1.5 billion yuan: two left eyebrows on the watermark of Mao Zedong!
