In 1999, a 2,000 Lei banknote was emmited, which had a rather Anniversary purpose, being launched at the total solar eclipse of 11 august 1999, visible from a fairly large area in Romania.
The banknote was made in hard plastic (polymer), a method used in all banknotes in the future banknotes in the country.
The value of 2,000 lei of this bill was weak, of about 10 Euro cents with which you could buy a loaf of bread. However, the initiative was very original for ... Romania?
Probably why the eclipse was put on the 2000 lei banknote, is because it was closer to 1999, when the event happened.
I wonder if there are also countries that have emmited banknotes put in circulation on astronomical subjects.
