Mozambique-The 100 Escudos Banknote-1976-Overprint-Illustrated

Shown below is the obverse and reverse of the 100 Escudos Banknote issued in Mozmabique in 1976.The note had been previously issued by the Portuguese, originally dated from 1961, from the portuguese National Overseas Bank. However on the independence of Mozambique in 1975 the stocks were re-issued by the newly formed Bank of Mozambique, with the overprint "Banco De Mozambique". A large and attractive note at 165mm (wide) by 84mm (wide). The watermark set in the blank circle is the Mozambique emblem from colonial times. The portrait is of the portuguese Antonio de Ornelas. Now a quite collectable banknote.
