Tonga - 20 Pa'anga

Twenty Paánga
ND, P41b
This is a Tonga T$20 printed and issued recently. This is a reprint of the original 2009 issue. The signatures on the note are not the same as those already issued and I believe this is the only denomination bearing these signatures combination, as three other reprint notes of T$1, T$2 and T$5 all have difference signatures too. No reprints have been sighted for the remaining denominations for the 2009 issues yet, ie TS$10, T$50 and T$100. It is not sure if any of these have been issued too. Obviously we believe this T$20 note was printed and released between 2010 and 2014. Whether this note was released before or after the death of previous King Taufa'ahau Topou IV, is not sure either. In all, we have sighted 3 varieties of signatures since this series was first issued in 2009. This series has since been replaced by a new series (full set) with the portrait of the new King in 2015, which I will be posting on my site here early next year. Merry Christmas to all my friends and visitors.
