Seychelles 50-Rupee 'Sex' Note

1968 - Issued as part of the first and eventually the last series of banknotes of Seychelles with Queen Elizabeth II's portrait on the surface, the controversial 50-Rupee note once contains a quite inappropriate glitch.

Although dominated by a sailing ship at the center and Queen Elizabeth II, the main culprit of the scandal was the two intertwined palm trees to the right of Her Majesty which seem to spell the word 'SEX'. Thus, making the unintentional error a famed controversy.
