Collectors series- Part Three

This is all about currencies.
I don't know how this guy could get dollor notes in roll??!!!



First time I have seen a Square shaped bill!! I guess it is Thailand's!! Correct me if I am wrong.


This is the Highest denomination note I have ever seen!!


Indian one Rupee Note!!!

Oh! those were the days I was longing to get this as my pocket money,

but pocket had only coins!!!

I doubt if one rupee note is still in circulation in India?

This caught my eye! You have an amazing collection! One rupee notes are no longer in circulation here.

Although not the one rupee notes, 1 Re. coins are used amply.

Thats a nice collection.

Interestingly, I possess a couple of these one rupee notes with me, apart from a few other old Indian currencies.

Well, that might not be the largest denomination, since Zimbabwe recently released a $10 million denomination note.

YES.
You can still get hold of these notes though in Bombay.
Some families use these notes during religious occasions such as Diwali, etc. to make sets of odd-amount gifts. (such as Rs. 1001, 100001, etc)
