New additions week 19 - 2015 (2)

This week after a three-day visit to Disneyland Paris I came home finding a brown envelop with some interesting stamps on it in the mail. A letter from the Mujand Trading Company with the new set of fantasy banknotes! I can tell you that this was the perfect homecoming after a long car trip with loads of traffic jams and lousy french food. Below is the description I wrote earlier about this wonderful new set:

"One of the most interesting fantasy banknote series is the one from the Mujand Trading Company. Previous posts about their sets can be read herehere and here. What I like about these sets is not only their beautiful and innovative design but especially the whole story and mythology behind them. The fictional planet Blissdane Naïve and the different nations on the planet provide a fascinating backdrop for the different banknote sets.

Now a fifth set has been released, from the nation of Perish Island. The story goes that this island regularly sinks beneath the water and now has submersible houses on it (please read the whole fantastic story of why this happens here). Following this story the banknotes have been made of a waterproof polymer material. The front of the notes shows half of the portraits above water, while the backs shows the other half of the portrait under water. Front and back put together makes the portrait complete. How brilliant is that?

The set can be bought exclusively at the eBay store of Yuri111."
