Many of Chile's Finest Specimen & Proof Banknotes


Chile has an outstanding variety of exquisitely designed banknotes. The country had a large number of commercial banks, and they began banknote issuances in 1869. The designs and bright colors of these commercial bank notes were wonderful, and many of the vignettes were intricately detailed. Some of the commercial bank notes were much larger in size than most other world banknotes. The Republica de Chile began issuing notes in 1880.. Many of the regional and Republic issues have been marked with one or more handstamps for validation. Many world banknotes, including those from Chile, were designed and printed by the American Bank Note Company.


The PMG population report few surviving issued notes from the early years. Many of the graded issues are specimens and proofs. In many cases, there are only one or two graded examples of a particular note, so locating a particular issue might take some time.
