Haiti 10 Gourdes 2004 P279 Polymer Unc
These Haiti 10 gourdes were prepared but never issued. They follow the design of the paper
10 gourdes issued in 2004 to celebrate the Bicentenary of Independence, except that these
were printed on polymer plastic. Nobody has yet come up with a reason for them being prepared
and then never issued and it seems a few bundles of these slipped out before anyone
realised the mistake. Haiti of course was one of the first countries to experiment with a form
of plastic banknote way back in the 1980’s but the project was abandoned then too. These
more modern 10 gourdes Polymer notes are in Uncirculated condition.
