A complete set of 4 new notes released on 20.1.2014. These notes replaced those previously issued since the late 60s. The four new notes comprises of 500, 1000, 5000 and 10000 Francs. These notes are not as colourful as those previous printed, and needless to say, previous designs are much nicer. The sizes are also much smaller too. Well, this is only my personal opinion. The French Pacific Territories comprises of French Polynesia, New Caledonia and Wallis & Futuna with a total combined population of approx. 540,000+/-. The issuance of banknotes for the French Pacific Territories region is the responsibility of it's central bank, the Institut d'émission d'Óutre-Mer (IEOM), which is based in Paris France. IEOM was founded in December 1996 and empowered to issue banknotes and coins for the French Pacific Territories. The CFP (aka Franc) was first introduced in 1945 due to the weakness of the French Franc after the end of the Second World War. The currency code of the CFP is XPF and it's value is pegged to the Euro at 1 XPF = 0.00838 Euro cent. A whole set is worth €138+ face value.
