Great Britain - £5 Isused on 13.09.2016

2016 is the year where four banks issued £5 polymer banknotes in the United Kingdom. They are the Bank of England (13.09.2016), Clydesdale Bank (27.09.2016), Bank of Scotland (04.10.2016) and The Royal Bank of Scotland (27.10.2016). Whilst both the Bank of Scotland and Clydesdale Bank have previously issued polymer notes, this is the first time that the Bank of England has issued a polymer note in their current banknotes series. The Bank of England also intends to release two more polymer notes (£10 and £20) over the next few years. However, it is not sure if the £50 will also be converted into polymer material too. This note bears the signature of the Chief Cashier Victoria Mary Florence Cleland. She was appointed to the current role in March 2014. First prefix of this issue is AA01 with AM as the last letter prefix. It is not clear if AM60 is the last prefix yet, or the number could be higher. This note is printed with a year date of 2015.

Designs:
Front - Queen Elizabeth the Second, Coronation Crown, see-through window with Elizabeth Tower (Big Ben), Britannia;
Back - Sir Winston Churchill 1974-1965, Palace of Westminster and Elizabeth Tower (Big Ben), 1993 Nobel Prize in Literature award medal, Blenheim Palace maze (Blenheim Palace - birthplace and ancestral home of Sir Winston Churchill);

440 million pieces printed.

According to a report, 440m printed with prefix AA to AM, with 60m of each prefix printed. Based on these information given, I am unable to work these out unless I know all the prefixes printed ie AA01, AA02 etc.

Papua New Guinea - 20 Kina 2014 Specimen Polymer

It is believed that only 3 notes were printed with the year date of (20)14, and the 20 kina was one of them. The other 2 denominations were 2 and 100 kina. The note posted below is a specimen piece. This is the only specimen piece with (20)14 I have in my collection.

Vanuatu - 2014 Polymer Series 2-Uncut Sheets

A full set of three 2-uncut sheets of polymer notes of Vanuatu Vt200, Vt1000 and Vt2000 all issued in 2014. I have no information on the quantity issued. Perhaps the quantity is the same as the 2010 VT10000 Commemorative polymer note issued in 2010 (ceased circulation in 2013), but then I have no info on that one either. I am not sure other uncut sheets were also issued, but so far none has been reported apart from these. The first prefix for this series is AA14 but again I am not sure if these are also issued with AA prefix. Even the set I have below is showing the prefixes are not in sequence ie AD, AF and AE. The 3 sheets I have here are all with matching numbers.

Vanuatu - 2014 Polymer Series with Hand Signed Signatures Issued In Folders

Like the 10,000 Vatu Commemorative note issued in 2010, here I have posted 3 definitive polymer notes issued in 2014, all personally hand signed by the Bank Governor and Minister of Finance, Semion Malachi Athy and Maki Stanley Simelum respectively. Given that these are hand signed notes, and if you look closely you will notice that no two signatures are the same. These are limited edition and the purpose of this is to celebrate the conversion of currency from paper to polymer. Each note comes in a presentation folder and only 100 sets issued with serial numbers from 1 to 100. This is the only way if you are keen on getting single or double digits numbered notes.
