Synopsis:
Ever wonder who the famous figures are on various banknotes and how the concept of "paying the bearer" first originated? This monetary miscellany of unusual banknotes tells the story of different nations' notes (like the unusual Faroese Krona) and the lesser-known people and places depicted on them. The history of the U.S. dollar is covered in full, including a list of the numerous slang terms for it that have developed through the ages, and stories of famous forgeries and money launderers along the way. Following currency from 7th-century China to the (cancelled) 500 Euro note, color reproductions make this a fascinating insight into banknotes, famous faces, and the whole history of legal tender.


This book is in excellent condition. The pages are very clean and crisp. There is minor wear and scuffing on the dust cover due to normal shelf wear and handling. I believe it's a first edition. Great book for collectors of trivia!

It measures 6 inches long and 6 inches wide and has 156 pages.
