The world of Mujand (fantasy notes) - 03 b Kuninganna (Lothandizia)

We continue our story on Lothandizia, where we find the Kuningana Territory.
Kuninganna happens to mean Queen in Estonian.
Kuninganna Territory
This territory issued 8 notes,from 5 till 1000 Fusto. An 'uncommon currency' according the notes.
5 -10 and 25 Fusto. They represent notes 039 to 046 in the set.
 50 - 100 and 200 Fusto
and 500 - 1000 Fusto

On the front side of each note, we see a girl harvesting.

The left border shows a word, that is repeated on some notes: Talv, Pööripäev, Kevad, Pööripäev, Suvi, Pööripäev, Sügis and once more Pööripäev.
The same words can be found under the denomintation, together with the text : "Vilja Koristama".
"Vilja Koristama" = to harvest the fruit.
5 Fusto with 'Vilja Koristama Talv'
The harvesting images reveal that these notes are related to the seasons. And with some knowledge of the Estonian language, we can find out that it represents:  Winter - equinox - Spring - solstice - Summer - equinox - Autumn - solstice
border text on the Kuninganna notes 5 - 1000
Even without knowledge of the Estonian language, the translation in English, of the above terms, are hidden on the notes.
The script lettertype makes it hard to read, but with some effort, you can read it:
8 Kuninganna notes referring to the seasons
solstice is a bi-annual astronomical event, around June 21 and December 21, when the Sun's apparent position in the sky reaches its northernmost or southernmost extremes.
An equinox is a bi-annual astronomical event, around 20 March and 23 September. It is the moment at which the center of the visible Sun is directly above the equator.
