St Thomas & Prince 5 &10 Dobras 2016 P70 & P71 Polymer

St. Thomas and Prince lies off the coast of West Africa. This island group issued a new set of banknotes last year all printed in polymer plastic. Getting hold of these was exceptionally difficult because of the authorities reluctance to release quantities to visiting dealers. We managed to get some of the 5 and 10 dobras and very pretty they are too! Butterflies are the principal theme. On the back of the 5 dobras a Sao Tome shrew is featured while a Sao Tome Prinia bird perched on a branch is on the back of the 10 dobras Uncirculated.

Sudan General Gordon 500 Piastres PS106

In 1884 the city of Khartoum was under siege. General Charles Gordon who was in charge of the city needed money to keep his troops on side and to ensure the city could function. To this end he issued notes which bore his facsimile signature in values from the 1 piastre to the 5000 piastres. The Mahdi forces eventually stormed Khartoum and Gordon was killed. Anyone caught with one of these General Gordon issues would have been put to death. We can now offer examples of the 500 piastres note issued by General Gordon. They were necessarily small and crude affairs, printed on cardlike paper on one side only (PS106) A relic of an heroic stand by a legendary 19th century general.
