The Art of Money
Every country has different size bills except the United States, which I also find interesting. The effort put into the design of a single bill or coin is just amazon when you watch the process and design. I have toured both the US mint in Denver, CO and the US Bill printer facility in Ft. Worth, TX...sorry no pictures, that's forbidden. Another thing fascinating is the detail gone into keeping the bills from being counterfeited with water marks, silkscreens, threaded tape, shifting color ink among other things I am sure.
Currently the US currency is the number one counterfeited followed by the UK and the Euro. Makes you wonder with the change US economy if that will change. I would love to find out the ideas behind the Euro as it is making a currency representing many countries. I have created a collection of coins and bills from around the world, old and new...so check them out. Also if you have any complete currencies I am missing let me know.
