Myanmar 1958 100 Kyat Note

This is a close up of the obverse and reverse of Myanmar's 100 Kyat note. Wikipedia described this note as the third kyat series. The first kyat was coins only and the second kyat series was immediately after the second world war. The second kyat was issued by the Currency Board under the Union Bank of Burma in 1952. Those notes are quite rare.

In 1958, the Union Bank of Burma introduced these third kyat series. This 100 kyat was issued with the 1, 5 and 10 kyat notes. The major difference to this series and the seond series is the introduction of General Aunh in the obverse of the notes.
