Great detail and intricacy - they must be very popular over there.

Thanks for showing!
Thank you for the nice words - yes they are very popular over there but a specialist collecting subject when talking about worldwide - I’m quite fortunate and lucky to have all from 1947 to 2018 while others have gaps in their collection

8 Years ago I missed out winning this at Auction and always kept hope that I would have the opportunity to once again one day to try to obtain it - well finally my patience paid off and I have it in my collection - I’m very glad

I was happy to find this / buy this Maldives error banknote but it is fake apparently (a polymer banknote expert claims the seller used acetone to remove the ink on the back of the banknote)

Some lovely banknote items have been shown in recent posts in this thread, thanks Peter = PetCin88.

For some time, I have been focussed on some other Stampboards threads, most recently the K** = 100,000 post celebratory giveaway. May I now add something modest to this Maldives thread.

Maldives celebrates Scouting
Maldives began the year 1968 by issuing a set of four stamps celebrating Scouts and Cubs in the Maldives:

s-l1600-6.jpg
Maldives: Scouts and Cubs
Cacheted first day cover, unaddressed; Malé scroll cancel, 1 Jan 1968
SG 248-251; Sc 243-246; Mi 248-251; Yv 243-246
Designs: 2L & 25L — Baden-Powell; semaphore and cubs at campfire
3L & 1r — Baden-Powell; drummer and scouts saluting
Printers: Harrison & Sons Ltd.



Later in the year, this set was overprinted with text celebrating the first anniversary of the International Scout Jamboree held in Idaho, USA in Aug 1967. This suggests that a Maldivian scout contingent attended that Jamboree — can any reader confirm/correct that, please?

Peter,
The 50 Rufiyaa note dated 2022 has the same basic design as the 2015 one - but with the Rufiyaa sign added.

Oh wow Aidan Work - I haven’t seen you online anywhere or heard from you in 7-8 years… :o

The Maldives Rufiyaa Collectors Group on Facebook has gone very quiet after your disappearance 2016…

Good to hear from you and hope you can share your banknotes and postal orders on Stampboards

I highly recommend you check out this Maldives Stamp Thread

These unissued banknote designs are also shown in the Maldives philatelic thread, where I've added an appreciative post, and a link to discussion of Dhivehi and the Thaana script for interested readers :D

Nice unreleased banknotes! Thanks for showing them Peter = PetCin88 :D

I'm guessing that the text on these banknotes was regarded as too thick and heavy, to the point of detracting from the pictorial elements, and this was the artistic reason behind the decision not to release these banknotes.

Probably we will never know the official reasons, but that seems a plausible guess ...

Compare with the artwork and more restrained text of this 1990 issued Five Rufiyaa banknote:

Well deserved appreciation, PetCin88 :)


For those of us not well acquainted with newspeak, I share the benefits of my on-line search:

.
In the phraseology of my generation, Kudos to you would have the same meaning and probably the same level of warm support.

A recent relevant experience

Last Monday my wife and I visited the Art Gallery of New South Wales [=AGNSW] in Sydney, to see the current exhibitions(*).
While having a light lunch in the newly refurbished Members' Lounge, we especially enjoyed one of the paintings in that area: a pop-art work by Australian artist Richard Larter. I've just found an on-line view of the painting in an exhibition catalogue:
.

.
The original painting, in AGNSW, is quite large. What caught our attention, and some discussion, was the message: Fool! You can't debase language — only your thinking suffers. We took that to be inspired by George Orwell's critique of the way language is used for political purposes to mislead and shape people's thinking in ways that suit the power holders of the day...

/RogerE 🦉

(*) Current exhibitions at AGNSW are the annual Archibald, Sulman and Wynne Prize finalists. We also made a point of seeing the current exhibition of over 200 works by Alfonse Mucha, a marvellous exhibition!

Thank you RogerE

However the rest of your comments about your visit to AGNSW are completely off topic to this thread about Maldives Banknotes ✌️
