Samoa's $10 Tala Cotton Bank Note

One of the Central Bank's key obligations is to meet the currency needs of the public. Therefore, as the sole provider of the currency, it has to ensure that stocks of all currency denominations (notes and coins) are in adequate supply and of high quality to meet the transactional needs of the public.

No other person is allowed to print or issue currency. And, it is an offence to deface any currency by means of writing, stamping, erasure or any other actions that would change the features of the currency.
