PALESTINE CURRENCY BOARD SPECIMEN NOTES
Specimen notes, as their name implies, were intended to serve as samples of the actual notes, and were generally distributed to banking and judiciary institutions, etc., close to the time of first issue, so that they would be known and identified within these contexts.
There were two types of Palestine Currency Board specimen notes:
- specimen notes identical to notes that would eventually circulate, which had the word ‘CANCELLED’ perforated into them, some bearing a serial number comprised of all zeros, and some with a regular serial number;
- presentation notes which were specimen notes printed in different colours from the circulation notes, intended to promote sales and presentations.
