The new Luxembourg catalog not only impresses with its scope, which one would not expect given the manageable paper money history of our "little" neighbor, but also with its content.
Hardly possible with German bureaucracy, we learn right at the beginning that the catalog was created with the support of the Luxembourg national cultural fund and that, in addition to the authors, none other than the Luxembourg Minister of Finance and the First Honorary Councilor of the Luxembourg Central Bank each contributed a foreword.
Then comes the catalog section, starting with the notes of the International Bank of Luxembourg from the years 1856 to 1981. Each note is not only described in great detail, there is also information about the printers, circulation, circulation times, signatures and much more. But what is particularly impressive is the large number of illustrations of drafts, print samples and sample certificates. At first glance, you can almost lose track of what certificates are actually issued and what are "only" preliminary stages. Nevertheless, the entire history of paper money in Luxembourg has probably never been documented so extensively. Issues by the Grand-Ducal Bank of Luxembourg from 1873 to 1876, by the Luxembourg State from 1914 to 1980, by the Institut Monétaire Luxembourgeois from 1985 to 1996, emergency issues from 1918 to 1919,
The ratings can be found in a separate supplement in up to four grades in euros, with ratings for each series of banknotes issued.
Since German collectors are also interested in Luxembourg paper money, the new catalog can only be warmly recommended. Unfortunately, it is entirely written in French. However, this should not be an insurmountable hurdle to correctly identify and value Luxembourg paper money.
