    I was also lucky enough to be there when the new 100 and 1000 baht bills came out commemorating the coronation of Rama X. img778.jpg img779.jpg img780.jpg img781.jpg

    FYI, the Thai Baht caused the 1997 Asian Currency crisis. :D

    Even though I don't actively collect MPC's, it was only 50 cents, so I figured I couldn't go wrong. Anyway, here's what I can make out from the annotation on the face.

    Thank you for your assistance @lettow. Regardless, if I recall correctly, isn't "natal day" an archaic term for a birthday?

    These were printed by Continental Banknote Company in New York in 1866 and sold to Irish immigrants to raise funds for the rebellion against the British. ireland$51866dtl1.jpg
    The main vignette is of Erin beckoning to the Irish soldier from the American Civil War to take up and bear arms in Ireland
    This portrait is of Wolfe Tone, an 18th century Irish nationalist.

    Curiously when Ireland became independent in 1922 these notes were NOT redeemed, but the ones that were more like bonds with "Republic of Ireland" also printed by Continental Banknote and sold from 1866-1919 were redeemed via an office of the Irish government in New York in the late 1920s- for bonds that were payable in the late 1930s.

    This note and the bonds were issued by competing factions of the Fenian Brotherhood. They did fund the establishment of a nation, via the Fenian raids into Canada in 1866-7 - the British authorities there decided that the colonies in N. America needed to be unified as a political unit that became Canada.

    A few early 1960s Chinese notes from the time of the Great Famine and the beginning of Mao's cultural revolution, some of China's deadliest eras. Beautiful designs, ominous history. I was also surprised at their smallness. The 1 Jiao probably has the size of a concert ticket (for those who remember receiving physical tickets).

    Curiously the lady tractor driver was a known person, Liang Jun. She passed away last year aged 90 years old.

    I traveled there in February 2020! It is such a nice country! The people are very friendly and the land is beautiful. That bill is super nice as well! I thought the stories from this king were very interesting! Isn't he actually living in Germany?

    More Chinese 1960s Cultural Revolution and Great Famine era (Series 3) arrived. Again, beautiful designs, ominous history. The pictures do not show the size differences, unfortunately, as their sizes relate proportionally to their denominations. The 2 Jiao is probably less than 3/4 the size of the 5 Yuan and the 5 Jiao lies somewhere in between. Most of this series first appeared in the early 1960s and continued circulating until the government pulled them in the early-mid 1990s, so they did their economic duty throughout some of China's most nefarious and turbulent times.
