    Latest Banknote purchases.

    Reddit? I'm not sure that's very active for this... I went dormant wrt my collections for a long while but I'm preparing to return. Probably fewer coins, more notes and literature. I wasn't a very organized collector but maybe that will change now...
  2. exactly. that's right up there with "the IRS is here to help you" and "the great pumpkin is on the way!"
  3. i'm surprised it doesn't yet exist. this can't be a unique need.
  4. no problem. squeeze that into your inkjet or laser printer at home and you're good to go
  5. i've never liked the albums where you press the coin into the cardboard (although i'd totally buy one to use to keep track of what i have). home-produced albums almost certainly have problems like chemicals that would interfere with preservation ... you could go out and buy the right kind of paper, but labels and printer stuff would screw things up. art's idea of an app to produce this stuff is pretty cool, presumably that you could print it "safely."

    Please Help Me Understand BitCoins

    bitcoin is a virtual currency not backed by any government. there are no bitcoin notes or coins; the evidence of the currency exists only in digital form. Wikipedia talks about Bitcoin reasonably.

    Odd year on a pound coin

    i'd presume it was a fake. there are lots of fake one pound coins. but there's actually a good reason to do this now: 2016 is the last year of the round pound. there's a new design this year (i like the new design but it might be too busy for a coin the size of the pound), and then that's it. From 2017 it will be a twelve-sided coin.

    Redesigned US Notes (fictional)

    well, for a single cocktail at a bar that might be ok. for a full meal with people, probably not.
