The World's Most Colorful Currencies, Part 2

The World's Most Colorful Currencies, Part 2


In a blog post long, long ago we scoured through what was then the 119 circulating currencies of the 192 UN member states to find some of the world's most colorful currencies. And we found a few, but the comment section was filled with bank notes that were not taken note of. So, with the suggestions of our members and a bit more scouring here are some more colorful bank notes in part two of The Color of Money From Around the World or The World's Most Colorful Currencies. And don't forget to check out part one, The Color of Money from Around the World, and the site Ron Wise's Banknoteworld who seems to have a complete collection of world currencies scans.

100USD Bill Now In 3D!



The Series 2009 $100 bill design was unveiled on April 21, 2010 and will be issued to the public on February 10, 2011. The new Hundred has received design changes similar to the current $5, $10, $20 and $50 bills. The new bill features an enlarged portrait, color-changing ink, and a unique teal background color. A depiction of a quill has been added to the front along with faint phrases of the Declaration of Independence. New security features include a three-dimensional security ribbon and a color changing "Bell in the Inkwell". The security thread, portrait watermark, and microprinting security features were retained from the previous design. The reverse of the new bill depicts the rear of Independence Hall, as opposed to main front entrance which was shown on the reverse of the previous series. Also new to note is a uniquely colored, large, numerical inscription found on the right side of the reverse, of the note's amount oriented in a fashion that is perpendicular to the rest of the prominent writing. The 2009 redesign marks the first time the signatures of the Treasury department executives are placed on one side, and that the signature of the Treasury Secretary is above that of the United States Treasurer. - wiki

What a wonderful collection! Many years ago I was lucky enough to be involved in the design of security features for currency. Money not only has to look good but it has to be secure so the designs and colors you see all have a purpose and are created in an attempt to thwart counterfeiters. There are so many convert features hidden currency is the ultimate in technical design.

It's all quite fascinating, but you should show the artwork on the reverse side of the Canadian money. It varies over time and is a lot more interesting than the official portrait side.
