This island nation in the South Pacific Ocean was colonised by both the British and the French, the latter accounting for the delicate style of the banknotes issued for the country until independence in 1980. These orange 1000 francs have long gone from circulation. and were a common issue for French Overseas Territories. An overprint of Nouvelles Hebrides was added to denote which country they were destined for. (P20) A young woman appears to the right and a thatched house is to the left.
