1986 Suriname 100 Honderd Gulden One Hundred Guilders

The Centrale Bank Van Suriname used to print Surinamese Guldens (or Guilders, Dutch in origin) but decided to change the name of its currency in 2004 to dollars (inflation being a big factor in this decision).  The colors on this country’s bills are interesting and sort of fit in to the tropical climate that exists there.

See our 1986 One Hundred or Honderd Gulden bank note from Suriname in the photographs below.   On its front is a portrait of Anton de Kom who was from Suriname, went to The Netherlands and spoke out about racial discrimination.  In fact de Kom wrote a book about these injustices.   He was in The Netherlands during the German occupation in World War II.  Anton de Kom was part of the Dutch Resistance.  He bravely wrote period about the horrors suffered by people (many of which were Jewish) in The Hague. Anton de Kom was later arrested and lost his life in a concentration camp due to an illness.  There is an University that honors his name that is located in his home country: Anton de Kom Universiteit Van Suriname.    On the bottom of the front is a picture of a block of houses and buildings and on the right an impression of a militia.  The back side has a toucan bird and a scene of perhaps a debate. The colors on the back are yellows, orange, reds and purple.  This banknote’s and its condition or in other words grade is uncirculated.  The watermark appears to be a toucan bird.
