Website researchs

The information that is displayed in the website is the result of an constant research, done with the collaboration of many people that send reports.

The most active research are pieces since 2007, due to the imposibility to obtain official information, and also the cataloging of banknotes before the creation of the Central Bank, known as "Private Bank" issues.

New pieces

Research is carried out to catalog new pieces, being current or historic. For historic pieces, among catalogued pieces are unknown issues, proof, specimen and variety, specially banknotes before the creation of the Central Bank of Venezuela.

Reports of new pieces can be done by sending a photograph through Contact. If possible, the website uses and provides a both side photografic reference of the piecem and it could be improved further.

Also, banknote with error is cataloged. Due to a high population of banknotes with error, special mention in Bolívar Fuerte, error with significant changes is only being cataloged.

Serie interval

The research of serie interval is done by taking note of the lowest and highest serial number of the banknotes. These allow to estimate the amount and serial interval. These informations are displayed in the details of each issue and in the files available in Downloads.

This research is done for banknotes issued since 2007 (Bolívar Fuerte and Bolívar Soberano) and in some replacement serie before 2006.

The reports of the serie can be done by sending a photograph (high quality is not required) though Contact.

Serie prefix

The research of the series prefixes consists in keeping notes of the first digits of the banknote serials, usually from 2 to 5 digits depending on the estimated amount of emission. These annotations help to keep track of the behavior of the emission of the series and thus determine possible series intervals that may occur, especially the replacement series. The collected information is displayed in the details of each issue, as well as in the file available in Downloads.

This research is carried out for the emissions since 2007 (Bolívar Fuerte and Bolívar Soberano) and for some issues before 2006 (Bolívar) when there are doubt about the amount of issue like the banknotes of 1 Bolívar, 2 Bolívares and some replacements series.

Example:
  • When it's indicated "B43", it means that the banknote which the serial begins with B43XXXXXX is known.
  • When it's indicated "B40-B50", it means that the banknote which the serial begins B40XXXXXX through B50XXXXXX is known.

The serie prefix reports can be made by sending a photograph (high quality is not needed) through Contact.
