Mexico - 100 Pesos 2017 100th Anniversary of the Enachment of the Constitution of the United Mexican States 05.02.1917

On 05.02.2017, Banco de Mexico (Bank of Bank) released a commemorative 100 Pesos paper banknote celebrating the country's 100th Anniversary of the Enactment of the Constitution of the United Mexican States 1917-2017.

The design of the note features the followings:

Obverse: Luis Manuel Rojas Arreola (1871-1949) Chairman of Congress (L) and Venustiano Carranza (1859-1920) Head of State 1915-1917 and Mexico President 1917-1920 (R) - swearing in before the Constituent Assembly after amending the Constitution;

Reverse: Congressmen appear swearing to observe and enforce the Mexican Constitution.
 
The note's colour is predominant in red and yellow, printed with the date of 25 Ene 2016 (25.01.2016) and was released on the 100th Anniversary of the enactment of the constitution, 05.02.2017.

Collecting Mexican banknotes sometime can be tough and challenging as notes are usually signed by difference members of the Board of Government (Junta de Gobierno) even it was a single note issue. For this issue, I believe it comes in two series, AX and AY and each series also printed with five difference signatures varieties, all bearing the same Cashier's signature (Cajero Principal). Here I have posted 9 notes with AX series (prefixes K, L, M, N, P) and AY series (prefixes Q, R, S, T and U).

For this series you will find that both the AX and AY series are printed will matching signatures between them, ie

K & Q,
L & R,
M & S,
N & T; and
P & U.
It is believe that letter prefix O was not used.

Haiti - 10 Groudes Dated 2013 Polymer

This is the long awaited polymer note from Haiti. Whilst this note was reported much earlier, only recently it has been released to the public for circulation. It is interesting to note that whilst this note has a year dated of 2013, the previously 10 Groudes paper note issued has a year date of 2014. I am not sure why this was the case. Also it is believe that this could be the only letter prefix M printed in polymer, presumably a maximum total of 10 million pieces. The 2012 paper note print was printed with prefix L and the 2014 issue was printed with prefix N. Unless there are crossed over prefixes printed. Is this a one-off polymer print for this denomination? The other question to ask is why they issued the 2014 series first before this polymer note?
