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.
