At first read, I almost thought you were lauding the World Currency Cartel.

Interestingly, a resource like the Gallery might be helpful in debunking this ongonig scam.

I like James Lileks' curious lucre, a small but amusing collection of world currency.

A great find, hama7. For those of you interested in *Monopoly* money, and the fascinating political and social history of this game, check out this feature from a show yesterday on NPR.

These Japanese proto-bills from 1600-1900 are pretty interesting.
