With a new country, comes a new set of banknotes but these proved to be very shortlived as well as being very difficult to source.

A portrait of the rebel leader Dr John Garang de Mabior is on the front. A herd of giraffe is on the back of the One Pound, a herd of long horned cattle on the back of the Five Pounds and a pair of wildebeest on the
back of the Ten Pounds. A great set missing from many world collections.
