The Central African CFA franc is the official currency of six states in Central Africa: Cameroon, Central African Republic, Chad, Republic of the Congo, Equatorial Guinea and Gabon. It was established in 1945, replacing the French Equatorial African franc. The CFA stands means “Coopération financière en Afrique centrale” (Financial Cooperation in Central Africa), and the Bank of Central African States (BEAC; Banque des États de l’Afrique Centrale) is the official issuing institution. The first CFA francs notes issued were in denominations of 5, 10, 20, 100 and 1000 francs in 1947. After a period between name changes in institutions and issues, the bank name was established to Banque des États de l’Afrique Centrale in 1975. Each state began to issue notes in their names in denominations of 500, 1000, 5000, and 10,000 francs until 1993, when banknotes started to have been issued with an only letter assigned to each state to distinguish the different issues by country; A – Gabon, C – Chad, F – Equatorial Guinea, M – Central African Republic, T – Congo and U – Cameroon.

The 1000 Central African CFA franc note front design features a portrait of a typical African citizen, the denomination and each state assigned letter. In the background, a scene that represents the Wood industry; a man driving a heavy timber harvesting machinery vehicle. The reverse note side illustrates an agricultural scene with cattle, two men with hoes, a third man driving a tractor and the denomination. This note is part of the 2002 series, and its color is blue, light rose and multicolor underprint.
