Since I've only been to Canada and have really only seen change there, no paper money I've always been curious as to what other countries' money looks like. So this is my thread where I am asking people from different countries to post pictures of what your money looks like! C'mon!!

Back in the day, our notes were bigger, and the Queen looked a lot younger! ;D

Gosh, back in the day, there were no 20p pieces (I totally remember when they were new!) no pound coins, no two-pound coins, and the 5p, 10p and 50p were bigger, and there were half-pennies!

Yes, yo - you could go to the sweet shop and buy a piece of coloured rice paper to eat for a halfpenny!



Here's what we had instead of the pound coin:



Back when the Queen had brown hair, yo - I remember those days!

I remember the big 10p and 50p, I can't remember the introduction of the 20p though.

Yeah, when I was in America I found your money so confusing. Your notes all look the same. It was particularly annoying to look into my purse, see a big wedge of notes and think I had lots of money... just to realise they were all $1 notes. Aren't $1 notes a bit pointless when the dollar is worth so little? And yoiu have a $1 coin!

The one dollar coin is pretty uncommon. We very rarely use them. I've only ever gotten them from the post-office stamp machines as change.
As for the $1... it's not really pointless. I use them quite often.

The coins have changed now though. The backs all have a section of the coat of arms, and they make it all up when put together. It's pretty cool.

Whoops.

Penny= 1 cent
Nickle=5 cents
Dime= 10 cents
Quarter=25 cents

Next is the 50 cent piece

And the last two are our dollar coins.

I think you'll like Scottish money when someone (probably redfrag) posts it.

Interesting thread! Here is the Jordanian currency:

1 qirsh or 1 piaster - 5 piasters - 10 piasters - 25 piasters or a quarter - 50 piasters or half a Dinar.


And those are the bank notes:
1 Jordanian Dinar - 5 Dinars - 10 Dinars - 20 and 50.
