Vanuatu - 10,000 Vatu Commemorative 2010

Ten Thousand Vatu, ND28.7.2010 PNL
Commemorating 30th Year of IndependenceReverse
Reports have indicated that a full set of polymer notes are also printed waiting to be released, and for the first time, a 2,000 Vatu is also printed. New notes printed are Vt200, 500, 1000, 2000 and 5000 with obverse design same as this note but difference colours. These new notes will not be released for circulation until current paper note stocks are depleted and given a small population in Vanuatu, this may take some time before we can get a chance to see them.

Kai,
The 10,000 Vatu note is NOT a commemorative note,strictly speaking.

Vanuatu has only had 2 commemorative notes - 1995 200 Vatu & 2005 1,000 Vatu.

This came from the Vanuatu Todays news onLine on 1.8.2010 and I quote

"Vanuatu introduces new plastic bank note to mark 30th anniversary
Vanuatu Prime Minister Edward Nipake Natape launched the country’s first 10,000 vatu note to celebrate the country’s 30th anniversary of independence after the official opening of 30th anniversary.
Vanuatu’s Reserve Bank governor, Odo Tevi, says the new note carries the theme of telecommunication to reflect the recent liberalisation of Vanuatu’s telecoms market.
While the bank had always printed its notes and minted its coins in England, the latest note, which is plastic, was produced in Australia.
It was understood the appearance of counterfeit 5, 000 vatu notes this year prompted the bank to turn to plastic notes."

And unquote.
