NEWSADDAM GULF WAR NOTE

Iraq 5 Dinar 1992 Saddam banknote P80
This 1992 5 Dinars note of Iraq was issued after Iraq's defeat in the First Gulf War.  The country was under a United Nations embargo so was unable to utilize its regular bank note printers.  Instead it utilized a Chinese printer that was willing to break the embargo.  The quality of the notes left much to be desired, however they filled the need and were pressed into service.  The red note features a portrait of Saddam Hussein with an underprint of an ancient temple.  The back features Iraq's Tomb ot the Unknown Soldier and a small vignette of an ancient carving of Hammurabi in conversation with the sun god Shamash. As an anti-conterfeiting measure, the note contains threads that fluoresce blue and orange under Ultra-Violet light. The note is Uncirculated.

Reduced size image
This 1995 Iraqi 250 Dinar note picturing Saddam Hussein was issued after Saddam's defeat in the First Gulf War.  Inflation was taking a serious toll on Iraq, so this new, higher denomination was needed.  At the time it was issued, it was the highest denomination note in circulation. It had an official exchange rate of over $750, however on the street it would buy only a few dollars worth of goods. The reverse of the note shows the frieze from the Liberty Monument in Baghdad.  Because of the United Nations embargo, the notes were printed locally on an offset press and lacked the anti-counterfeiting devices found on most banknotes today.

NEWITALIAN EMERGENCY MINIASSEGNI NOTES

Italy miniassegni banknotes (1975-1978)
Starting in 1975 many Italian banks issued what are called miniassegni, in order to help alleviate a severe coin shortage.  To get around the prohibition against issuing money, miniassegni were cashier's checks made out to a local business with a pre-printed endorsement, so that they could circulate as if they were real money. Miniassegni were issued a number of denominations ranging for 50 Lire to 350 Lire. Most are about 4 inches (100mm) long. The banks found them profitable as many were never redeemed because they were saved by collectors for forgotten by their holders due to their low value.  Soon other businesses began to issue them as well, including municipal chambers of commerce, stores, newsstands and bars. Some notes are quite colorful, highlighting local tourist sites.  By 1979 the government finally produced enough coins and the series came to an end.

Kosovo was a province of Serbia that is made up of primarily Muslim ethnic Albanians.  In 1998 fighting broke out between Serb armed forces and ethnic Albanian militias that supported independence or unification with Albania.  Atrocities were committed by both sides.  United States and NATO forces finally stepped in to stop the fighting.  It was during all this chaos these unusual banknotes were issued.  The notes were printed on obsolete 1992 Macedonian banknotes.  The notes dated April 1, 1999 were issued by the Provisional Bank of the Republic of Kosovo.  The 25, 50 and 100 Dinare notes have a black Albanian double-headed eagle printed on the front.   The 10 Dinare does not have an overprint on the front.  The backs of all the notes have legends in both of the main Albania dialects; Gheg, which is used by the ethnic Albanians in Kosovo, and Tosk, which is the "official" dialect of Albania.  The notes were sold to collectors as fundraisers for humanitarian efforts in Kosovo.  They are the only notes of Kosovo as Kosovo has not yet issued any coins or notes for circulation.

LEBANESE LOLLAR SATIRE NOTES

Lebanon Lollar satire currency set: 1 to 100 LollarIn May 2022 a Lebanese group called “The Lebanese Transparency Association – No Corruption” released a series of six satire notes protesting the corruption and incompetence of the Lebanese government. The notes are all labeled “The Currency of Corruption” in English and Arabic.   Lebanon used to be called the “Switzerland of the Middle East”.  It was the place to do business in the Middle East and had a lively culture and night life.  Elected officials, more interested in their political party than their country have destroyed the country, which is now near collapse.
Lollar is a term used to described U.S. dollars that were deposited in Lebanese banks but now can only be withdrawn in Lebanese Livres at highly unfavorable rates.  Advertising agency Leo Burnett partnered with acclaimed British artist Tom Young to create the notes. The notes were available at special ATMs in various locations in Beirut.  
The notes are approximately the size of United States currency.  The backs of all the notes depict a modified rendering of the Central Bank building, showing it in ruins and labeled “The Lollar Bank”. 
The 1 Lollar note depicts a rusted train at the Tripoli Mina station.  The once prosperous rail system that linked Lebanon to Europe has been inoperable since 1989 and left to rot, but the government still spends millions to pay the wages of 300 employees of the railway administration department.  The 5 Lollar note protests the fuel cartels.  It depicts the endless queues at gas stations that have blocked streets nationwide since 2021.   The 10 Lollar notes depicts the garbage crisis.   Garbage has been piling up in the streets in Beirut and elsewhere creating an environmental disaster.  The government signed sweetheart contracts with politically connected companies to collect garbage.  Some companies just dumped the garbage into the ocean, others disappeared, those that remained reduced or stopped collection when the government could no longer afford to pay them.  The 20 Lollar depicts a burning cedar forest.  The country spent millions of firefighting equipment, but did not maintain it, so fires rage out of control.  Neighboring countries have stepped in to help the Lebanese army put out fires.  The 50 Lollar note protests power shortages. Despite large government expenditures electricity is only available a few hours a day if at all from the power grid.  Local cartels which obtain fuel under questionable circumstances operate generators selling electricity at exorbitant rates.  The 100 Lollar note depicts the 2020 Beirut port explosion which killed over 200, left over 300,000 homeless and exposed the corruption and incompetence of port officials.   The set of six satire notes are not real money, but are a real protest against of corruption of the Lebanese government.

Set of 7 Lebanon banknotes 1 - 250 Livres 1980-1986Set of 3 Lebanon banknotes 1000 - 10,000 Livres 2014-2016
Lebanon was once one of the most prosperous nations in the Middle East.  In recent years entrenched politicians, caring more for their political party than their nation, drove the country to ruin.  In 2020 a massive ex-plosion caused by improperly stored am-monium nitrate killed over 200, left over 300,000 homeless and destroyed major portions of Beirut. 
The beautiful 7-note set includes the 1, 5, 10, 25, 50, 100 & 250 Livres dating from 1980 to 1986. The notes feature natural and historical sites throughout Lebanon.  The newer 3-note set shows the corrosive effects of inflation.  It includes the 1000, 5000 and 10,000 Livres dating from 2014 to 2016.  The colorful notes feature geometric designs, a Lebanese Cedar (few of which survive) and the denomination in large Arabic numerals on the front.   Lebanon was under French control from the end of World War I until after World War II so the notes have legends in Arabic on the front and in French on the back.   Also available is the full set of all six notes currently in circulation: 1000, 5000, 10,000, 20,000, 50,000 and 100,000 Livres dated from 2016 to 2022 in Uncirculated condition.  At the official exchange rates the notes are worth well over $100.  We obtained these at black market rates so can offer them for far less than their official face value.

WHEN A COMPANY RAN A COUNTRY  -  THE MOZAMBIQUE COMPANY

Mozambique Company, 20 Centavos 1933 PR29 The 1885 Congress of Berlin carved up Africa, granting various European nations control over of the continent.  The boundaries that were set in the conference still make up most of the national boundaries in Africa today.  Portugal was granted control over Mozambique; however it did not have the economic or military resources to control the vast territory.  In 1891 it granted The Mozambique Company (Companhia de Moçambique) a 50 year concession over the central region of Mozambique.  The Company was given almost complete control over the region,  including the right to exploit resources, collect taxes and require the natives to engage in forced labor.  It ran the Post Offices and issued its own currency.  It developed the port of Beira and built a railroad to the landlocked British colonies of Rhodesia and Nyasaland. However it did not have the financial resources needed to develop the rest of its territory and often failed to meet its obligations to the Portuguese government.  Most of its income came from its ability to tax and its power to use conscripted labor on its plantations.   Because of the company's poor performance and changes in the Portuguese government,  the company's concession was not renewed when it expired in 1942.  The Portuguese Government assumed direct control of the region.  The currency issued by the Company was recalled and punch cancelled.  From the Mozambique Company we have the 20 Centavos note dated November 25, 1933 .  The note is punch-cancelled "PAGO 5.11.1942"  (PAID November 5, 1942), which was shortly after the Company lost its concession.   The note wass were printed in London by Bradbury, Wilkinson & Co.   It is a fascinating note from a private company that was given control over a nation.

ZIMBABWE PETROL RATION COUPONS USED FOR MONEY Wholesale prices available to dealers

Zimbabwe 5 & 20 Litres petrol and diesel ration coupons
Reduced size images
As Zimbabwe's economy spiraled into complete collapse due to its incompetent government policies, corruption, and massive inflation, shortages developed for most essential items.  Petrol (Gasoline) and Diesel were rationed.  The Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe issued the ration coupons which were required in order to purchase fuel.  Because of the rapidly depreciating currency, fuel ration coupons soon became a parallel currency.   Even though fuel was often not available, many merchants accepted the ration coupons rather than the Zimbabwe Dollar in payment for goods and services, as their value was more stable.  We offer a set of two unissued Zimbabwe fuel ration coupons.  One is good for 5 Litres (Liters); the other is good for 20 Litres (about 5 gallons).  The coupons were released around 2005 and could be used to purchase either Petrol or Diesel.   They are an interesting item that was used for money during a time of economic crises.

BOOK: PAPER MONEY MESSAGES, A PICTORIAL PERSPECTIVE by Jeffrey Jerome Wing

Book: Paper Money Messages, A Pictorial Perspective by JEffrey Jerome Wing, Volume 3, Christianity
These three richly illustrated volumes explore the symbolism, history, propaganda and economics behind the designs used on paper money.  All three  volumes are interesting, informative and filled with obscure and surprising information.  I highly recommend them for anyone interested in paper money, history, economics or politics or just easy reading.   The volumes are 8.5 x 11", softcover, color and are 242 to 256 pages.

The recently released Volume 3 (Christianity) focuses on Christians as well as Christian images (and some non-Christian images) found on banknotes throughout the world.  Also included are stories about some of the many educators, explorers, evangelists, activists, scientists and medical professionals found on banknotes around the world.  It is a good read for anyone interested in history or banknotes and a great reference for both Christians and non-Christians.
