By: Scott Barman Coin Collectors Blog (CoinsBlog.ws)

You need a quick amount of cash. After all, not every transaction can be made with a credit card. You hop in the car and drive to the bank to use the ATM. Within seconds, the machine spits out money and you drive away. Early the next morning you look at the bills and notice […] Full article at the source>

By: Dennis Hengeveld News.CoinUpdate.com (Coin Update News)

Thematic (or topical) collecting is very popular in the stamp community. There are collectors and clubs for a wide range of subjects, from butterflies to lighthouses and from royalty to astronomy. In the numismatic world, collecting by theme is not as popular or well publicized, but there are still many opportunities to build a collection based on a certain topic, and many collectors who build such collections. In this article we will take a look at some areas of banknote collecting that are likely to give a thematic collector the most opportunity to find examples with a certain theme.

The Tyvek banknotes of Haiti

April 19, 2017 in Bank Notes, Collecting, Collector Sets, Currency, Education, History, Money, News, Numismatica, Numismatics, Opinion, Paper Money

By: Dennis Hengeveld News.CoinUpdate.com (Coin Update News)

More and more countries all over the world are in the process of switching or have already switched their circulating currency to issues printed on plastic (polymer) materials. Polymer banknotes are much more durable than traditional paper banknotes, have better security features, and are cheaper in the long run. Examples of countries that have switched part or all of their currency to polymer banknotes are Australia, Brunei, Canada, the United Kingdom, and Vietnam, among others. These relatively modern banknotes have become a very popular field with collectors from around the world. For such collectors, the earliest issues to collect… Full article at the source>

Paper money today is changing—and it’s changing fast. Close to home, recent developments have included the announcement of redesigns for the U.S. Federal Reserve Notes of the $5, $10, and $20 denominations to include women on our money for the first time in more than 100 years. Further abroad, some countries are attempting to do away with cash entirely, such as Sweden and parts of Europe that are accepting 100% digitalization and mobile banking.

Harriet Tubman (1820 – 1913)

 

United States Treasury Secretary Jack Lew will announce today that after much debate and consideration abolitionist Harriet Tubman has been chosen to replace President Andrew Jackson on the front of the $20 bill. The change will not go into effect until 2030, but the new design will be shared with the public in 2020 as part of the run up to the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th amendment, which gave women the right to vote.

Jackson won’t be banished from the 20 entirely, however. Secretary Lew has indicated that the seventh U.S…. Full article at the source>

Alexander Hamilton’s Place on $10 Bill More Secure Thanks to Hamilton Musical

The $10 bill has been the subject of much discussion lately as the Treasury gets ready to re-design the note in order to better protect it from counterfeiting. Of particular interest has been Treasury Secretary Jack Lew’s stated openness to adding a portrait of a woman to the denomination.

A spirited conversation followed the suggestion, with many commenters up in arms at the prospect of the $10 bill carrying an image of someone other than the co-author of The Federalist Papers. And when the Treasury implied that Hamilton would stay on the bill even as a woman was added,… Full article at the source>

Where did these unusual notes come from?

Zimbabwe $100,000,000,000,000 Bank Note

By: TJ Shea (http://www.pennypinchercoins.com)

Zimbabwe P#91 2008 $100 Trillion Bank Note

As we venture home or away for the beginning of the Holiday Season, let’s take a look at the Zimbabwe P# 91 2008 $100 Trillion bank note. Yup, a hundred trillion. $100,000,000,000,000. In the late 90’s and early 2000’s Zimbabwe went through a period of unprecedented inflation caused by high import trade imbalance, too much government spending, and low savings rate… sound familiar? Even the Brazilians were amazed.

The series officially, and incredibly, starts with a One Dollar note and begins the upward spiral with million, then billion, and eventually trillion dollar notes. The engraving design is pleasing, if overly consistent… Full article at the source>

The Redesign of the $10 Bill Gets Attention

Oftentimes it’s so easy to take our everyday cash for granted. We know the basic designs well-enough to recognize a $5 from a $20 bill in our pocket, but few everyday handlers of money really think about their paper money beyond that.

But the new redesign of the $10 bill is getting some serious media attention. In early July of this year, Secretary of the Treasury Jack Lew announced that plans were being made to redesign the $10 bill—and to replace Alexander Hamilton’s face with a portrait of a woman.

Steve Wozniak Gives Student Interviewer Some of His Famous 2 Dollar Bills

Steve Wozniak gives Sarina Khemchandani $2 bills (via ReachAStudent).

Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak is famous for small idiosyncrasies. One of which is his habit of buying sheets of 2 dollar bills from the Bureau of Printing and Engraving, perforating them himself on a printer and breaking them off two- or three-at-a-time to cover small transactions.

The Numismatic Bibliomania Society shares Wozniak’s explanation of the practice, quoted from his blog: “The sheets come in sizes of 4, 16, and 32 bills each. I buy such sheets of $2 bills. I carry large sheets, folded in my pocket,… Full article at the source>

Comments About Depicting A Woman On $10 Bills

June 18, 2015 in Bank Notes, Numismatica, Numismatics, Opinion

By: Michael Fuljenz  (Award-winning numismatic author and President of Universal Coin & Bullion in Beaumont, Texas)

“For far too long, Americans’ folding money has displayed an all-male portrait gallery of dead Presidents and other prominent men from the nation’s past. Placing a woman’s portrait on our currency is a form of equal rights that hasn’t received nearly enough attention up to now.”

“Recognition of women on U.S. paper currency is long overdue. We have not had an actual, historical woman depicted on our paper money since 1896 when Martha Washington appeared with her husband, George, on $1 notes.”

“The U.S. dollar is the world’s most widely used medium of exchange, and as the father of a daughter — and a son — I heartily endorse placing a woman’s portrait on U.S. $10 bills, and hope this recognition of women continues to other currency and circulating coins into the future.”

Q. What’s special at the coin show for kids?

Foster: Gold History Corp. and people from the Reed Gold Mine State Historic Site will be letting people pan for gold again. For $5, you get a pan of dirt from an actual North Carolina mine. Don McNeely is a 30-year prospector, and he shows you how to do it. It’s worth the price just to talk to him. Also, since it’s the 50th anniversary of the Kennedy half-dollar, we’ll be presenting half-dollar sets to the winners in the Azalea Festival children’s art contest.

Numismatic Change? / Reinaldo Escobar

By: Reinaldo Escobar. March 19, 2014 in Desde Aquí / English (http://desdeaquifromhere.wordpress.com/)

The much discussed Cuban dual monetary system, which has distorted the economy for more than twenty years, seems to be facing its final days. Among the few reports that have been released, it appears it will be the CUP–the Cuban or national peso–that will survive, and the CUC–or Cuban Convertible Peso that will cease to circulate.

In addition to the actual value of each of these currencies, they differ in that the differ in that if the CUP has a photo of a historical figure, the CUC has a sculpture of the same personage. Also on security issues, CUC far exceeds its alter ego.

The question we ask ourselves is whether there will be a change in the real value of money we earn as wages. How many hours will one have to work once the money is unified to buy a pound of spaghetti, a quart of oil or a beer?

Note to investors: not all money will make money

February 19, 2014 in Auctions, Bank Notes, Coins, Investing, News, Numismatica, Numismatics, Rare Coins, World Coins

By: James Cockington. February 19th, 2014 (http://www.smh.com.au/) Sidney Money Herald (Australia)

Rare coins and stamps are now an established asset class, increasingly popular among those with self-managed superannuation funds. Coins were nominated as the third-best-performing asset on a December 2013 Deutsche Bank list – increasing by 60 per cent in value since July 2007. Rare violins (133 per cent) and gold (91 per cent) were the two top performers.

Banknotes, it appears, are yet to be accepted in this blue-chip category.

Two Saturdays ago, several prime examples were included in the numismatic auction held by Roxbury’s Auction House at the Hotel Grand Chancellor in Brisbane.

History’s home in a village

November 18, 2013 in Ancient Coins, Antique Coins, Art, Bank Notes, British Coins, Coins, History, Museums, News, Numismatica, Numismatics, Paper Money

By Hemant Kumar Rout 11-17-2013 (http://newindianexpress.com)

It is a treasure trove of antiquity buried in obscurity. The Odisha Rural Museum  is home to 6,000 rare coins and currency notes of around 200 countries, 7,000 postage stamps, 3,425 foreign and Indian paintings, 2,000 rare metals and stones, 3,000 books and magazines, old clocks, watches and much more.

Located in Maitapur village in Balasore district, 200 km from Bhubaneswar, it is the only museum of its kind in the state with a collection of nearly 30,580 rare artefacts that draw innumerable visitors, including students and research fellows.

However, it is not run by any government agency or corporate body. It is the labour of one man’s love and untiring effort. Kailash Chandra Mohanty, a retired employee of Indian Post and Telegraph Department, was determined to retain the historical significance of his native village which led to the creation of the museum.

During his tenure, Mohanty travelled across the country and collected artefacts over 50 years. He spent his own money and established the museum in 1985. Since Mohanty’s demise at the age of 74 earlier this year, his wife Janakilata Mohanty (67) has been managing the place.

There is no entry fee here and the museum is open from 10am to 4pm every day. Exhibiting ancient coins, foreign currency, century-old postal stamps, palm leaf manuscripts, musical instruments, ancient weapons and armoury, the three-room museum is a confluence of world culture.
