Liberia is a country in West Africa, bordering Sierra Leone, Guinea, and Côte d'Ivoire. On the Atlantic coast, the capital city of Monrovia is home to the Liberia National Museum, with its exhibits on national culture and history. Around Monrovia are palm-lined beaches like Silver and CeCe. Along the coast, beach towns include the port of Buchanan, as well as laid-back Robertsport, known for its strong surf.
Liberia is one of the world's poorest countries. The Central Bank of Liberia is responsible for printing and maintaining the Liberian dollar, Liberia's primary currency. The first Liberian dollar was issued in 1847. The Treasury Department issued notes between 1857 and 1880 in denominations of 10 and 50 cents, 1, 2, 3, 5 and 10 dollars.
