Croatia Colour Trial Collection

It’s not often you get the chance to include colour trials in your banknote collection. This is because they are rarely available to the collector market. They tend to remain with the printers or are destroyed. These colour trials from Croatia, I think you will agree are pretty exotic What are colour trials? Well, as their name implies they are trial printings of banknotes done on paper or in colours that are not adopted for the final issued printing. The trials we have on offer were prepared for Croatian banknotes issued in 1993. They are printed on one side only showing either the front or the back. Many of the trials for the reverse show an incomplete printing stage. Our collection contains 10 different pieces including the fronts and backs of the 200, 500 and 1000 kuna which in issued form are very expensive. Also included are the fronts and backs of the 5 and 20 kuna. Illustrations include prominent citizens from the past and important buildings. This fabulous Croatian Colour Trial Collection comprising 10 pieces, a real talking point.

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.

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.
