Malaya and British Borneo One Dollar from the year 1959

What we will talk about here is a Malaya and British Borneo One Dollar from the year 1959.  This banknote was made for use in the Federation of Malaya, Singapore, Sarawak, North Borneo as well as Brunei.  This note was issued on March 1, 1959 and was legal tender until January 16, 1969  (though the Federation ended after 1967).   The front of this old paper money has a sail boat and the reverse a scene of fishermen returning from the sea.  The name of the banknote company was W&S which is printed on the reverse side.

Our 1959 Malaya and British Borneo One Dollar is in very fine grade as has experienced some circulation but still has some crispness to it.

1917 Norway 10 Ore Coin

In this post we’ll have a look at a 1917 Norway 10 Ore Coin which can be seen in the pictures below.  On the front side of its appears an image of monogram with a royal crown on top. Also there is lettering that appears to say Alt for Norge whose meaning is all for Norway.  This 10 ore coin is 0.40 fine or in orders 40% silver and has a weight of 1.45 grams.  There were 5.95 million of these made in 1917.  The king in Norway at the time this coin was made was Haakon VII who was actually an elected monarch.  He is thought highly of particularly because of his resistance to the German invasion of his country during WWII.  The reverse side of this coin has the country’s name, denomination and the year in which it was struck.

This 1917 Norway 10 Ore Coin has seen circulation and its grade is perhaps fine.

1951 Switzerland 5 Franken Banknote

The post here will discuss a 1951 Switzerland 5 Franken Banknote.  On its obverse is written at the top: Schweizerische Nationalbank (Swiss National Bank).  Below that is this old paper money’s denomination in 3 languages: Funf Franken (German), Cinq Francs (French) and Cinque Franchi (Italian).  There is a picture to the left hand side of William Tell, a folk hero of Switzerland from the 1300s.  The reverse side of this note has the denomination surrounded by Schweizerische Nationalbank and Banque Nationale Suisse Banca Nazionale Svizzera which Swiss National Bank in 3 languages (German, French and Italian).

Our  1951 Switzerland 5 Franken Banknote has some serious folds and has seen a lot of circulation.  The grade is perhaps very good.

1931 Panama 1/10 Balboa Silver Coin

So this entry will be about a 1931 Panama 1/10 Balboa silver coin which has a weight of 2.5 grams.  It is made out of 90% silver (0.90 fine) and there were only 200,000 of these struck in the year 1931.  The front of it has a portrait of Vasco Núñez de Balboa who was an influential Spanish Conquistador and politician in the (early 1500s).  He established a settlement which would eventually become known as Panama today .  The currency used in Panama is the Balboa and  has been since that country was established in 1903 (after splitting from Colombia).
