Transnistria - 2017 Great October Socialist Revolution 100th Year Anniversary

Transnistria is officially known as the Pridnestrovian Moldavian Republic. However they are also sometime referred to (spelling) as Transdniestr, Trans-Dniestr, Transdniestria or Pridnestrovie.

A set of two Commemorative notes released by the Transnistrian Republic Bank on 03.11.2017 to celebrate the 100th year of the Great October Socialist Revolution (1917 to 2017). The Russian Revolution was started on the 08.03.1917 and ended on 07.11.1917. The Revolution marked the end of the Romanov dynasty. Needless to say, Transnistria is pro Russia even though they do not share a common boarder with Russia. The nearest distance between Transnistria and Russia is about 800+ kilometers (exclude Crimea). The denominations for the 2 notes are the 1 and 5 Rubles. A told of 5,000 sets were issued with 2017 sets sold in a folder. The designs for both notes are from the 2007 series but with the addition of the USSR Order of the Revolution added to the design of the notes. With such a small issue, it was not intended for general circulation.

Poland - 2016 Prints

Here are the 3 notes all printed with difference days and months but with the same year of 2016. The signatures on these 3 notes are not all the same either as they were issued on difference dates. The five hundred zloty note is the largest denomination issued since Poland carried out the currency reform in the early 90s. In 1990, a set of new Zloty banknotes (1 Zloty to 500 Zloty - 9 notes) were printed but failed to release into circulation due to poor counterfeiting protection features. The currency reform conversion rate was then set at 10,000 old Zloty to 1 new Zloty. These rejected notes were then sold off as souvenirs with the word "NIEOBIEGOWY" (non-negotiable) in red printed across on the notes, front and back. In 1994, a new set of 7 notes were printed to complete the currency reform with denomination values from 10 to 200 Zloty. Prior to the currency reform, the last Zloty old notes were printed with values between 50,000 and 2,000,000 Zloty all dated 1990.

The 10 and 20 Zloty were first issued on 01.01.1995. The 500 Zloty note was released into circulation on 10.02.2017. The word Zloty in Polish literally means Golden.
