M-O-N-E-Y! With Flickr notes . . .

I collect international currency from friends who travel - here are some of my favorite bills with notes attached to tell you what country they're from. I think they are a beautiful, individual representation of their countries.

 

Some of these have a lot of zeros, I'm guessing because of a lot of inflation!

    Nice to see that old polish banknote with Copernicus, I haven't seen one in years.
  • Earl 9y

    Mr. Physics, artsyevie and Slinger5 - thank you!

    Hello Kacper! I think the Polish notes are particularly beautiful, on the reverse as well. Are the new notes as attractive? My friend that visited Poland told me the currency was going to be revalued not long after she left.
  • Michał Kasprzak 9y

    The money was denominated in 1995 that's when the new coins and banknotes were introduced. Im not sure if they're more atractive than the old ones - have a look here www.answers.com/topic/polish-coins-and-banknotes . Also the Polish National Bank has just introduced a new colectors banknote featuring the old pope - www.nbportal.pl/pl/np/numizmatyka/galerie/banknot-kolekcj....

    Thanks for the link, Kacper - it took a look and I think the new notes are well done. I admire the way they put so much effort in to the reverse side, too!

  • Earl 9y

    My apologies, Lord C - I don't have any Mexican bills yet. I'm sure they are quite beautiful!

    After recently visiting Colombia, I was excited to see you had some Colombian currency in the mix! glad to see someone else wasnt afraid to visit either. but you spelled it "Columbia" instead of Colombia. :)

    If I were a rich man... Thanks for sharing with Creative Commons. I used this image with an article on exchange rates.
  • Tracy O 7y

    Of all the "money shots" I've seen, this is the most eclectic.
  • Earl 7y

    Thanks! I think currency is a fascinating way to get a look at fresh views into a country. That's the only thing I don't like about the proliferation of Euros - the loss of individualization!
