The week-end is coming so we decided to make you a surprise by publishing the World’s 25 Most Beautifully Designed Banknotes.  Setting aside national symbols (e.g. important persons), the designs of the banknotes are simply superb.  Today, most people want to have more dollars, euros or yens, but I would give all these currencies for the Dutch Guilder. Well, the former Netherlands currency (mid-17th Century- 2002) is probably the most beautiful designed banknote that was in circulation.

Nevertheless, in this article you will be seeing a lot of nice paper money that was/is in circulation, as well as one concept (Uzbekistani Sum). Now, we have gathered a very exotic collection that includes the Cook Islands Dollars, Iceland’s Kroners, Paraguay’s Guarani or the Serbian Dinar and so forth. Nonetheless, enjoy, be inspired and if you will like this article, then please share it with your friends or community! Many thanks! Cheers!
