Now own two high-denomination notes issued for just a short time by an independent Burma (Myanmar)! These 50 and 100 Kyats were issued only in 1958, and were part of the final series of Burmese notes released before socialist rule began. At the time, they were the country’s highest denominations. Shortly after the socialist takeover, these notes were demonetized and pulled from circulation.
The face of each note features a portrait of General Aung Sang – who served as a key leader in Burma’s independence movement. On the 100 Kyats note, his portrait is shown beside a dancing peacock, while the back shows a farmer and oxen plowing a field. A detailed depiction of a Mandalay moat adorns the back of the 50 Kyats. These affordable pieces will make eye-catching and historic additions to your collection – get them now!
