The French Antilles financial overseer was the "Institut pour Départements D'Autre Mer" or the Institute for Overseas Departments, of the French Ministry for Financial Affairs.

The official currency of the Republic of Haiti is the "Gourde." Its name comes from the Spanish old derivative "gordo" or fat one.Having limited exportation and a struggling economy the Haitian Gourde is on a floating rate for financial markets. It used to be pegged to the US Dollar and the French Franco since April 1919, but as of 1989 this convenience was left out in favor of an open retributive market.This note circulated from 1946 to 1950. It bears the image of Citadel La Ferrière in Nord, Haití. It is a gloriously built fortress atop a hill and nowadays is considered a nice stop for tourism in that area. This image is on the bill's obverse, and the reverse shows the National Coat of Arms among several banking features.

Paper Money-World | AC coin$

The Potosí silver mines, the attraction of the Spanish conquerors until the first years of the 1800's brings a language of Bolivia's history to a bittersweet stop. Mining activity was the support of the national economy and somehow it is revered by this 500 Bolivianos banknote's reverse.The note is well preserved regardless of its circulation. The military and statesman it bears on the obverse is Colonel Germán Busch who had a shortlived presidency from 1937 to 1939. Not many Bolivianos bills of this denomination ran around for a long period of time, so having an item like the one I show here is a plus to my collection.
