BACKGROUNDER

The Kingdom of Landreth is a micronation state which is somewhat unique in that it does not possess any land. A similar micronation state is the Holy Empire of Reunion. With the advent of the internet it is expected that there are hundreds of ephemeral, virtual microstates in existence. 

Possessing similar characteristics but with substantial history is the very old micronation state of the Sovereign Military Order of Malta(SMOM). It does, however,  possess a tiny piece of territory in the Palazzo Malta in Rome.

The Holy Empire of Reunion has not issued currency units but both Landreth and SMOM have issued monetary units. Landreth issued its paper dollars in 1999 and the SMOM in recent years has issued silver and gold medallic coins and proof sets starting in 1961. SMOM began issuing coins as early as 1743.

While the SMOM is the successor state to the crusading Knights Hospitallers founded in 1099, not much is known about the currency of Landreth.

The Landreth banknote designs are very handsome combining a traditional face and a modern back, both having a professionally designed appearance. Seven denominations are known with a Series 1999, A and B designations. While these are attractive designs, the paper used is standard bond paper which does not do justice to these interesting notes.

Another micronation which has a proposed banknote that used Landreth as its design inspiration is Zugesbucht
