The banknotes of the sample c signature of the Minister of Finance

Sample paper banknotes – special topic in bonistics, and – rare: not much happens. It should be recognized that sample sample – discord: when the sample is intended for reproduction of banknotes is one case, and when samples are intended for distribution to banks or for business gifts is another case. Here I'm on the 2nd case.
1992, the capital of one of the European countries visited by the Minister of Finance of Western Samoa. Came to visit one business event – not so much for others to see how many show themselves as wedding General: the organizers of the event need was newsworthy for the media and even the Minister of a small country probably will attract the attention of the local press than the small businessman a very large country, even if he is from Russia.
The West is an island nation in the South Pacific ocean, monarchy with a population of about 200 thousand people, of which 92% are Christians. We must assume that the European colonialists at the time, worked thoroughly, even in the national anthem there is a line: 'it is a symbol of Jesus, who died for Samoa' - well, they know better.
At a dinner party in honor of the distinguished guest in one of the best restaurants my place as an organizer of the event was next to the Minister all information, including the menu, he got it from me. Goodbye big black man, reminiscent of the physique of sumo wrestler, gave me the complete (!) a set of samples of the Samoan currency is called Tala in the paper version, as well as a gift – anniversary plastic 2 Tala note signed by the Minister of Finance on the folder.
The commemorative plastic banknote and the banknotes in denominations of 50 and 100 Tala, depicts malietoa Tanumafili II – life head of state, officially referred to as 'the leader of the government.' And he ruled the country from 1962 to 2007 is 45 years old, not yet retired from politics and lives at the same time at the age of 95 years – the laws of the country and the health of the leader allow.
Upon closer examination of the set samples revealed that 5 of the 6 bills have Serie a and one in the amount of 2 Tala – series; numbers in all samples is the same – '000000'. And to absolutely eliminate the temptation to use samples of banknotes for purchases in the Samoan supermarket obverse and reverse side of banknotes inscription crosses the SPECIMEN (SAMPLE).
Collectors banknotes temptation to use samples as a means of payment does not arise: the collector's price samples of banknotes exceeds the value of the 'chodacki'. And for me personally the added value of the gift makes that a facsimile signature of the Minister of Finance on the commemorative plastic banknote is complemented by the handwritten signature of the Minister on the folder in blue ink with the date of the pathos of the event – 24/3/1992.
