I've also been bitten by the bug, mainly because of the Zambian 500, and 1,000 kwacha. I am a big fan of them in general though, and the ones from Romania are especially nice. I wish the US would jump on this bandwagon for the $20, it seems to be the most widely used other than the $1 note.

I'm actually looking for the 1992 issues of the Non-polymer 500 and 1,000 kwacha notes, and let me tell you that paper 1000 is hard to track down at a good price, and in unc. The 500 wasn't too hard, but I only have one in Xf. Who knew I would get the polymer first eh? :ninja:

Why not? I think that UK deserve to use the polymer notes... wasn't the image of QEII into first ever issued polymer note (Australia 5 dollars)?

Actually we use here plastic notes from 1999 and nobody died from this...

They have been in circulation in the British Isles, notably Isle of Man was the first place to issue polymer notes way back in 1982 with the tyvek notes. For some reason, maybe cost of production at the time, they did not use them long and then went back to paper notes. Northern Ireland has had Northern Bank issue £5's in 1999 with a Space Shuttle/Year 2000 commem.

Investment wise though it may be a good idea to get some bundles as it wont be long until the dong in re-valued then there a tidy profit in it,

Investment wise though it may be a good idea to get some bundles as it wont be long until the dong in re-valued then there a tidy profit in it,

i've always been a bit skeptical when it comes to "investing" in money bundles. i've seen hundred of those ads for years on e-bay now, (iraq dinars/vietnamese dong), and so far i haven't heard of any of the investors making any money. (the dealers are making a killing though!)

 

if i had a large bundle of these a few years ago:

 

RomaniaPNew-50000Lei-2001-donatedJaeHongLee_f.jpg

 

i wouldn't have made any money at all once these came out:

 

RomaniaPNew-5Lei-2005-dml_f.jpg

 

so my question is...even if the vietnamese dong is revalued, how do i make any profit?
