Curaçao and Saint Maarten new 25-guilder notes bear "future" date

According to an article on Curaçao Chronicle dated 17 January 2014, the new 25-guilder notes are intentionally dated 1 februari 2014. Even though this date is in the future, they are still valid and were issued early because the Centrale Bank van Curacao en Sint Maarten ran out of notes of this denomination with earlier dates.
