Dominican Republic issues warning about 2,000-peso notes dated 2013

According to a press release from the Banco Central de la República Dominicana dated 6 November 2013, 2,000-peso notes dated 2013 (similar to P181) have not been issued and are not legal tender. Notes of this denomination which carry other dates remain legal tender.

According to various other Spanish-language news reports, the French banknote printer Oberthur Fiduciaire misplaced 8,403 of these new notes which apparently had unspecified production flaws. Oberthur claims that French police have recovered approximately 2,300 such notes, yet some of the remainder (162 reported as of 7 November) have found their way into circulation in the Dominican Republic. The bank refuses to pay for the printing of these notes and is seeking compensation from Oberthur for damages caused by the problem.

According to an article on Noticias Sin dated 16 September 2012, the Central Bank of Dominican Republic will issue a 200-peso (US$5.10) note with portions of the design changed in color from gray to green on 1 October to avoid confusion with the existing 50-peso note. The existing 50-peso (PNL) and 200-peso (P178) notes are shown above. The video accompanying the article shows the new note dated 2009, with DE LA RUE imprint, and the denomination spelled out as PESOS ORO. This is curious because the bank has issued three other notes dated 2011 denominated in PESOS DOMINICANOS, and apparently the Constitution of 26 January 2010 mandated the change of the name of the monetary unit.

According to a post on the MRI Guide web site dated 15 July 2011, “The Constitution of January 26, 2010 mandated the change of the name of the monetary unit from "peso oro" to "peso Dominicano".

It has been proposed that the national flower, the Rose of Bayahibe and the national tree, The Mahogany should be pictured in the new notes.”

Dominican Republic 20-peso commemorative dated 2000 (P166) sought

If anyone has a copy of the Dominican Republic’s 20-peso note dated 2000 or 2001 with the printer imprint of BABN, I would very much appreciate it if you could please send me 300-dpi scans of same, front and back. There is some question as to whether this note actually exists. The SCWPM claims P166 has a special rendition of the date and commemorative text, but I’ve been unable to find any examples of this note. Thanks in advance for your help.

P.S. I’ve just been informed that this not does not exist as described, and that only P164, a 2,000-peso note, is available with a special 2000 NUEVO MILENIO logo. If anyone can refute this, let me know. Otherwise I will chalk it up as another error in the SCWPM.
