The current set of notes in circulation (50H, 100H, 500H, 1000H):

Armatirian notes are made from plastic. This not only makes them strong, but also makes it possible to implement sophisticated anti-counterfeit measures not available in paper notes. All notes feature vivid inks with light-shifting characteristics, glow-in-the-dark letters printed with a special "tactile relief" technique, and a metal strip with a hologram ("In Man we trust"). Each note has its own unique features as described below.


50 Huygens note. The motive is the oldest part of Ailati Harbour, a pier still in use for representational purposes, e.g. state visits. The slogan on the 50H note is "Freedom".





100 Huygens note. The motive is traditional folk drummers from the Asterabad region. The slogan on the 100H note is "Democracy".





500 Huygens note. The motive is the Tirion Treaty (year 42 AP), which marked the height of pre-revolution Armatirion's power. King Demaruc and the tribesmen of Moo-Skee-Tow met in Tirion, signing the Treaty which included the island in the kingdom, but gave the tribesmen semi-autonomy. Known as the last king of any actual power, Demaruc left the kingdom in the hands of corrupt descendants. Many years of opposition followed, ending in the Revolution in 297. The slogan on the 500H note is "Ecology".





1000 Huygens note. The motive is the Old Supreme Court in Humany. The actual Supreme Court of today is housed in bigger, more modern buildings not far away, but the Old Supreme Court is still used during important ceremonies, such as the inauguration of Supreme Court judges and the adoption of new laws. The slogan on the 1000H note is "Human rights".
