Guinea's 10,000-Franc Banknote

24 May 2022  Tue

The Guinean franc is the currency of Guinea. The first Guinean franc was introduced in 1959 to replace the CFA franc.

The Guinean franc was reintroduced as Guinea's currency in 1985. Banknotes were first issued in denominations of 25, 50, 100, 500, 1000, and 5000 francs. Guinean notes of this series are unique from those of other countries in that the date of issue features very prominently as part of the overall design on the lower left-hand corner of each note.

The Guinea 10,000 Franc banknote from 2010 was issued to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Guinean currency. Its front design bears the 50th-anniversary logo, the national emblem, three cowrie shells, pineapples, and a portrait of a young girl. The reverse side features the Lady of Maali rock formation on Mount Loura and a green field with trees.
