I have got one of the 10 Litu notes that was issued in 1989.Interestingly,it contains a reference to the U.S.S.R. Rouble,even though Lithuanian is a language that I cannot read,let alone speak.This note has a picture of Grand Duke Gedeminas on it.

 

The 1 Litauras note that I have got contains a reference to the 1991 Lithuanian Olympic Games.Like the 1989 10 Litu,this also contains a reference to the U.S.S.R. Rouble.

 

Does anyone have any information,apart from the fact that these are not listed in Pick?

these notes aren't listed in the regular-issue catalog because they are local issues printed for special events. you might find them in the pick catalog for special issues (volume 1).

 

the 1989 note you have is based on soviet rubles because lithuania was still part of the ussr. lithuania reestablished independence in march 1990, and the bank of lithuania's first issues were in 1991.

 

the 1991 note you have was issued by the bank of lithuania siauliu branch during the lithuanian world sports games. it commemorates the rejoining of the national olympic committee of lithuania into the international olympic committee. the logo for the lithuania games is directly over the olympic ring logo on the note's reverse. lithuania's currency was pegged to the russian ruble until 1994, when it was pegged to the u.s. dollar. in february 2002, it was pegged to the euro.

No,these Lithuanian notes are not listed in Pick Specialised.As seen as Krause has published a new edition of 'Unusual World Coins',surely,it is time to do an 'Unusual World Banknotes'.What do you think?

 

If they did that,then they would have to list items such as the 'Black Sheep' notes from Wales,the Chatham Islands notes,the private notes from the Jason Islands,& of course,the notes from the Hutt River Province Principality.

First note is only "Fair money", and of course don't based on soviet rubles and never been changed in rubles or Lithuanian regular notes issues. This note was issued for fair in Siauliai city in 1989, and the main meaning of this issue was protest against Soviet Union occupation of Lithuania (because in 1988 start Lithuanian independence process).

Second note is also like fair money, it was never changed in Lihuanian regular money or Soviet rubles. This issue was only souvenir, if somebody was buing this note, he was sponsoring Lithuanian Olympic commettee.

I don't know who recommend Mr. Krauze includ this noets in catalogue, but the reason, why this notes have some worth for notes collectors, is that this notes is in Krauze catalogue.

I hope that this information will be useful.

Sorry, but all of those lithuanian papers are not listed in one of the "Standard Catalog of World Paper Money"-issues.
