This is fairly new, since 2005. Only 9 notes issued so far (by 7 countries). This is one collection that you can say that I got them all! Anyone with new information on Hybrid banknotes, please feel free to post your comments. Thanks.

Could you explain what is meant by the term "hybrid" banknotes?

From what I have heard, a hybrid note is a combination of paper and polymer.

I am not an expert on this topic but let me see if I can explain it to you. A Hybrid note is basically referred to banknotes printed on part cotton paper and part polymer. The non paper part comprises of a polymer strip of vertical translucent band which usually cover a see-through register and the transparent window is usually in oval or square shape. For example of a Hybrid note is that Bulgaria commemorative 20 leva issued in 2005 or the recent Tonga 100 Pa'anga note. At the moment, only 2 companies printing them, G&D and DLR. Other countries have issued Hybrid notes are Fiji $100 (2007), Kazakhstan 10,000 Tenge, Samoa 50 & 100 tala (2008), Latvia 100 lats and Qatar 100 and 500 Riyals (2007). Most notes are printed on high denomination, except the Bulgaria note.

Apart from the Euro and Switzerland, the new Gibraltar 100 pounds to be issued in 2011 will also be a hybrid note too.

I have just uploaded the Vanuatu Vt10,000 (US$102) polymer note on my site. Feel free to view the note.

Vanuatu is the 33rd nation to issue polymer note. Is Canada going to be the 34th nation to do so? Time will tell.

Cheers

Thanks for the links Kai.  For the benefit of those who do not know what a Hybrid note is, would it be possible to include a definiton somewhere and for the Polymer notes too?  I couldn't find either definition anywhere and I'm sure there will be some visitors who won't have a clue what you're talking about. :)
