Somaliland Banknotes

Somaliland Banknotes


so hello fellow banknote collectors
let’s see if we can get this in view my name is Glenn in a I have these two
banknotes from Somalian which is a very interesting non-existent country
although it actually does exist so when I mean it doesn’t exist I mean it’s not
recognized by and you have a country and they declare it as part of Somaliland
but there’s actually he used to be called I think British Somaliland so
used to be part of the British you know his unify would be Jane smiley and mmm
bat 1960 I believe to form one country hmm a nation no somali has been in a
civil war since the 1970s it’s very fragmented they’ve been trying for past
15-20 years to put the country to Gary’s it’s just not working it’s too many
tribal affiliations probably so anyway let’s talk about the actual bank now
so depicting this actually Google quality it’s better quality in what I
forward actually we have a security Fred there is no watermark that I can see and
on this side it actually has the central bank building so he looks like a a
school building and this is in the Capitol so here’s the Capitol geyser and
it has the denomination in English as well as Somali Somali so national
language or smiley and in Somalia as a whole and it’s also a large Somali
speaking community neighboring Ethiopia in which Somalian if you have we’ve
actually gone to war so we have a five five five five and the last one is bit
race which is pretty good and as you can see has nice beautiful patterns it’s
actually a pretty good banknote for the the actual country and they on the
reverse we have deport up Berbera with sheep and
goats they actually look like sheep actually sheep with just a domesticated
goat really and here’s one security feature so on this side we have and
cloak annoy now on that side it’s just clear when you look through it they
actually join up and that’s not also a good indication with that the banknotes
on both sides join up and there’s no arrows on them so here we have in Arabic
also the denomination so five zero zero shipping and it’s actually quite a good
faint no doubt after all on the one fastened it’s pretty much the same
design except it is in red and the five inches in blue will show us a thousand
so Kwang soo shilling he’s our one fares and shillings in Somali Somali is
actually related to Arabic try to embody the language of Ethiopia not a majority
language but the largest one related to Coptic which ancient Egyptian is
actually its ancestor and the speech is a very interesting language also I
related to Gay’s which is a Christian language for the if you have been if you
have been Orthodox Church you never look at the watermark I’m not automated
security for it so this has 1000 on it and then sexy
yeah pretty standard for banknotes that I made a paper on the back we also at
the port of Abu baraa but as you can see he’s jacket he’s pants of different
color so these are in blue and these are in red so this one’s you red red blue
blue and this ship also has a little bit of color and a trucks also different
colors so these on two blue trucks isn’t a red that’s quite a unique feature and
these actually coming over denominations of 5 10
50 100 shillings and also five thousand shillings so to shoot five to five
hundred reissued in 1994 uni 1005 hasn’t issued in 2011 and he current values
about five thousand shillings equals one US dollar which mm-hmm
this one is equal to twenty you were sent this one is equal to ten US cents
but as a Somalian enter pretty poor country I don’t expect them to get any
denominations over ten dollars so maybe they should actually show higher
denominated banknotes I’d like to know if you actually have any banknotes from
Somalia and because they’re quite an interesting thing I really want to get
the lot and they also have our comedians banknotes which issued in 1996 from five
to five hundred shillings but it seems that they’re a bit harder to get so
