27 Aug 2019  Tue

Cyprus, officially the Republic of Cyprus, is an island country in the Eastern Mediterranean and the third largest and third most populous island in the Mediterranean. Cyprus is a major tourist destination in the Mediterranean.

The Cypriot Pound, also known as the ‘Lira’ was the currency of Cyprus. After the decimalisation of the pound, it was sub-divided into 100 cents. The Cypriot pound was replaced by the euro on 1 January 2008.

Today we are discussing a 1 Pound banknote issued in 2004. The obverse depicts a Cypriot woman wearing national dress to left; while the reverse features Cypriot handicrafts; and the village scene of Kato Drys. This orange note has the Bust of Aphrodite as its watermark.
