    I like 19th century notes : Large, monochromatic and imposing just like Empires that produced them.

    Duhhhhh. [​IMG] In seriousness, I liked old Canadian money before they changed the bills. The problem with US cash is that for me it gets damp and bunched up really easily, as if it's printed on really crappy paper. Before: [​IMG] After: [​IMG]

    The best looking money is the money I find unexpectedly.

    I just wish Canada still used paper for small denominations. It's a pleasure to be able to go to the US and buy something small with paper as opposed to a pile of metal.

    That Aruban money is pretty cool looking, maybe #2 on the list from recent memory.

    I think nothing beats the greenback though. Though, I really don't like the new ones they make to stop counterfeiters with the large portraits. I like them back before 1999.

    I also can't stand how Euros have so much change. The different sizes get annoying too no matter how practical it may seem.

    I hate clubbing in the states coz when you're drunk and its dark you gotta make so mcuh effort to make sure you're handing the 'tender a $10 and not a $50.

    I also hated the 1 dollar bills.

    I hate that we have no $1 bills, which means the minimum I can give a stripper is $5.

    They don't accept $2 coins like a coin slot? [​IMG]

    After a long vacation in Vietnam, I started getting used to the VND since all the bills were different colors. And at the time I went, I believe the new currency had just been released so just about every bill I touched was brand spanking new (my cousins warned me to make sure none of the bills stuck together since the new ones had the habit of doing that).
