Money, Money, Money

Have you photographed the money of the countries you have visited?

Mell---every time I enter a new country I try to start my photos with a sign or building name that shows the name of the country and I also do that for cities and town I enter.

I love those types of photos. I also love ones with the national flags in them. 😊

to catch those places we missed in previous visits and I plan to do a better job and will include the money.

It would be cool to have a collection of money photos, because at some stage it will go out of circulation, and probably be replaced with a completely different looking currency. I used to have money from the pre Euros days, for around 20 countries in Europe. I gave it all away, to folks who collect coins and notes. Reply to this

Mell----here's the deal----on my next travels I will photograph money and post. I really don't think I can find the old photos as many were shot using film (before I went digital) and secondly I have two coffee cans full of foreign coins and frankly I would have difficulty knowing exactly where they came from.In the next few days I'll see what I can assemble.

yes I think we have all photo'd unusual currencies - or brought it back with us as we had some left over - I have some Libyan whatevers if you want to see. And some from Zimbabwe in 2000 - I imagine it is even more useless now than then (and what other country has a pile of rocks on all their notes!). And who can forget the thrill of being a Vietnamese dong millionaire - that was in 1996 when it was about 10,000 dong to the Aussie. But my favourite was when a friend bought some land in Ghana 5 or so years ago before the cedi was revalued. The money totally filled a Chinese market shopping bag in brick type bundles! (unfortunately it was indelicate to take a snap and only the memory remains) Reply to this

Canadian Dollars. This isn't my photo - but I might take a similar one when I go there next summer!

I believe that this was the largest bank note in Uzbekistan and it was worth approximately $0.50. It was always interesting going out for supper or what not, we'd always be asking each if we had our "stash" with us, since $20-$30 equilvalent was quite a few notes to carry we generally split it between the two of us, to make it easier to carry. Such fond memories. Reply to this
