    I have a soft spot for Haitian coins, especially the earlier ones. I don't see Haitian paper
    money very often, but at ~$3 US, the price was right. If my atrocious French serves
    me, it says it is payable on demand at $1 US per 5 gourdes. I hadn't realized that the
    Haitian gourde was pegged to the US dollar as late as 1989. Even though the peg is
    decades abandoned, apparently prices in Haiti are still sometimes given in hypothetical
    "Haitian Dollars" at 5 gourdes to the dollar.
