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

Newer Older

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!

    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.

    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!

    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. :)

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

  18. Earl - What I Saw 2.0 86 months ago | reply

    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!
