Ok, I freely admit I have a tendency to hop from US currency (my one TRUE currency love) to what ever strikes my fancy. But I will be darned if I can figure out why I am having a hard time finding info on Monegasque currency pre-1995. If the answer is easy or right in front of my face, I warn you I will sniffle.
Thanx

The only Monégasque banknotes are dated 20 MARS 1920. There was an initial emergency issuance of 25- and 50-centime and 1-franc notes on 28 April 1920, followed by a second issued of 25-centime and 1-franc notes with different color schemes. The violet 25-centime notes are available with and without embossing, which was used to validate the notes, but the process was soon discontinued as a cost-cutting measure. The embossed notes have a crowned shield with diamond pattern at center, encircled by the text Principauté de Monaco, and are available with circles of two different diameters

Monaco issued lots of coins, but very little currency. Much like Panama.
