Madagascar, 2 ariary, 2003.

"ARIARY ROA" translates as "TWO ARIARY". This is in addition to "ariary 2" at the top of the reverse design.

It is common enough see the denominational numerals given in both letters and figures, e.g. "FIFTY  50  PENCE". However, I have never before seen the whole description, including the name of the currency unit or subunit, shown twice. Am I wrong?
