The Djibouti franc has been the official currency in Djibouti since 1908. In 1884, when the country was still part of French Somaliland (formerly Djibouti), the French franc was a bargaining chip alongside the Indian rupee and the Thaler Maria Theresa. However, since 1908, the franc circulating in Djibouti fixed its value to the French franc.

Between 1910 and 1946, the Chamber of Commerce, which was the issue institution, announced banknotes in denominations of 5, 10, 50 centimes and 1, 5, 10, 20, 50, 500 and 1000 francs. Then, in 1952, the Public Treasury acquired the coins and note production, suspended the issuance of 5, 10, and 20 franc notes, and announced 5,000 franc notes. French Somaliland changed its name to the “French Territory of the Afars and Issas” in 1967, and the 50 and 100 franc notes were replaced by coins in 1970. In 1977, when Djibouti achieved independence, banknote issuance was delegated to the National Bank, which introduced 10,000 franc notes in 1984 and changed the 500 franc note to currency in 1989.

The 10000 Djiboutian francs note front design features Hassan Gouled Aptidon (1916 – 2006), who was the first President of Djibouti between 1977 and 1999, and a giant manta ray on a coral reef background. The reverse note side illustrates the Central Bank of Djibouti Building. Both sides of the note present text in Arabic, French, Arabic numerals, and Western Arabic numerals. This note is part of the 2009 series and its color blue, green and multicolor underprint.
