Aruba 10 Florin banknote of 2003

2019-07-17 Wed

Aruba is a tiny Dutch Caribbean island off the coast of Venezuela. It has dry, sunny weather, blond beaches, and gentle surf. Constant trade winds bring cool breezes and cause the divi-divi trees to slope south-westerly. The architecture around the country shows a rich European influence that features Dutch gables painted in tropical pastels. It’s also evident in language, with English, Dutch, and Spanish spoken alongside the local tongue, Papiamento.

Aruba has one of the highest standards of living in the Caribbean region. There is a low unemployment rate. The florin is the currency of Aruba. It is subdivided into 100 cents. The florin was introduced in 1986, replacing the Netherlands Antillean guilder at par. The Central Bank of Aruba introduced banknotes in denominations of 5, 10, 25, 50 and 100 florins and dated January 1, 1986.

Today we are discussing a 10 Florin banknote issued in 2003. This while-blue banknote has a very beautiful geometric design with a Calco Indian conch - Melongena Melongena on the reverse with denominational values in patterned design.
