Banknote Book adds two new chapters

The Banknote Book, the leading online reference for banknote collectors, has added two new chapters.

Unlike the Standard Catalog of World Paper Money, the Banknote Book is published online – chapter by chapter – with regular additions. The latest additions to the nearly 300-chapter digital publication are Siam, which completes the listings for the country now known as Thailand, and St. Pierre and Miquelon, the France-owned archipelago just south of Newfoundland and Labrador.

The latter 16-page chapter documents “incredibly rare notes issued more than a century ago in a tiny outpost of the French empire,” according to editor Owen Linzmayer, who added these notes are dated from 1890-1964.

The 36-page Siam chapter covers notes issued by the Royal Siamese Treasury from 1853-92, the Government of Siam from 1902-39 and several other banks between 1889 and 1904.

With these chapters, the Banknote Book now comprises 298 chapters published as individual high-resolution PDF files, with nearly 7,400 pages covering more than 70,000 notes and varieties.
