Known for its diverse terrain, from lush rainforests and swamps to mountain ranges and savannas, Suriname has a host of wildlife, including many different species of birds. The Central Bank of Suriname featured a few of these birds on its 2000 series of notes. This interesting avian currency includes birds such as the Long-Tailed Hermit, the Guianan Cock-of-the-Rock and the Spectacled Owl, to name a few.

Collector Copperbox has images displayed for all of the notes in this PMG Registry set. His colorful and unique slideshow here is a must-see. These artfully presented notes feature not only interesting birds but also flora, fauna, butterflies and other wildlife native to Suriname. Each note has been carefully designed and is a true pleasure to behold. Copperbox began assembling this set in 2022 and currently sits in the coveted No. 1 spot with 100% completion. This set is loaded with many PMG Top Pops, including the two PMG 69 Superb Gem Uncirculated EPQ notes, each pop of three, shown above and below.
