New banknotes Costa Rica

As a collector of paper money I have a strong preference for 'beautiful money'. A colorful design with lots of details showing is what I like to add to my collection. No matter what its value is. Now Costa Rica will be issuing new banknotes soon. Three new banknotes which would be a great addition to any collection of beautiful money. The banknotes with a nominal value of 5000, 10.000 en 50.000 Colon will enter circulation on August 27.

The new notes are part of the very nice looking series with which Costa Rica has spoiled us collectors. Already issued are the 1000, 2000 en 20.000 Colones. The complete series is here for your enjoyment:

Very nice set Steven,

I also like buying sets, Can you guide me where to get good notes from in Netherlands. I will also try to attend the Maastricht event later next month.

There are a few links at the right of the screen with Dutch shops. 'Verzamelaarsmarkt' for instance has a very good name amongst dutch collectors. Same goes for Philamunt. I personally like to visit the shop Van Domburg in Delft. They don't have a webshop but they do have a very nice collecton inside the shop itself.

Although I purchase almost all my banknotes online, nothing beats the feeling of first having them in your hand.
