Scottish £1 notes are still around, their just not being made anymore. Take it from a Scot who works in a Shop. American money is too confusing, it`s all the same size, like monopoly money.
I hate the Euro, the most exciting part of going to a foreign country is getting lots of different currancies, the Euro spoils that.

The names were pretty neat too. "That will be 4 Real please." =P

Our country has a new $20 dollar bill now that is 1% more interesting. It`s sort of orange behind Jackson`s head... <<;

The new Canadian bills are awesome, the 5 is the best because theres hockey players on it. The tens and twenties are sweet. 100 is really cool also. *Note, all of the players on the five dollar bill are right handed.

Yup, the UK notes being different sizes also helps people who are blind or visually-impaired. You can tell what denomination a note is just by feeling its size, so you don`t get ripped off.

No such help with US dollar bills...

To me, I never understood American note money. In the UK it`s different sizes and colours so you know what`s what at a quick glance. In the US they`re all the same size, and green...

I`m from Northern Ireland, where we print our own sterling notes (still valid in the rest of the UK).

Check out one of our funky "Portrait" format 5 pound notes. Also its plastic and parts of it are clear/seethrough...

Bhutan has beautiful money.

On a side note, WTF is up with the figure in the background of Australia`s 10 Dollar? I`m pretty sure basic human anatomy doesn`t allow for people to look like that.

The Scandinavians have the coolest money. I love Norweigian kroner... because the coins have holes in and you can put them on a necklace!
Also this guy has used many old pictures....
But I still think Americans have the best notes. They really feel and look like proper money... they even SMELL like money.

Anyhow, it would`ve been cool to see more denominations of Canadian cash. From blue, we go to purple, green, red and then brown.

Some of the new US currency has a bit more color but I agree that it should have more (Jesus on motorcycle would kick asterisk!) My favorites are Costa Rica, Cayman Islands, and Italy.

the 1000 new won and American US seem to be the most pleasing and easiest on the eyes.

Bhutan`s was cool. England`s 5 pound note is an old one, it doesnt look like that anymore, but still has the unrealistically young photo of the Queen... she looked like that about 40 years ago! I don`t know why they dont update the image on the notes, they update her image on the coins!! Same with Cayman Islands... the Queen looks in her 20`s there, and she`s like 80 now!

Yes there really are that many different types of WON in Korea. There is no rhyme or reason, some bills are big, some are coins and some are small. They don`t really know what they are doing!

I have Francs, Dinar, Forint and Euros. Uh, France don`t use Francs anymore. Europe uses Euro, except for a few countries....

I like whatever money that can buy me things when I am in the particular country....no favorites!
