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.
