One of the more unusual banknotes to surface in recent times has been the advent of various formats of notes issued from Antarctica Overseas Exchange Office Ltd which was founded originally by D.J. Hamilton. These banknotes are private issues that have been carefully thought through and printed in a thoroughly professional manner. The notes even include proper security features and are a delight to look at both from an artistic point of view as well as from the finely executed printing. There have been three series of notes so far issued by the Exchange. These were known as the 1996, 1999 and 2001 series. They were created to raise funds for Antartic conservation works. Throughout the entire series, which were originally issued in 1996, the notes have been adorned with local themes which have been carefully selected to promote and boost interest in the collectibles marketplace. Twenty percent of the profits forthcoming from the sale of the notes is used to defray the costs incurred by the exchange. A massive 80% is distributed to organisations which seek to undertake research and humanitarian projects within the Antarctic region.
