Old UK magazine 'Money of the World'

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I'm a new member here. I just wondered if anyone based in the UK remembered an old magazine called 'Money of the World'? I got the first issue and it is what got me started on banknote collecting.

 

My (perhaps slightly naive) question is: Does anybody know if the banknotes that were included with the magazine genuine or replicas? If they are replicas then they look reasonably good to a novice, with watermarks and fibres in the paper.

 

There was a Mozambique - 100 Escudos note a Poland - 50 Zlotych note and a Peruvain note with the first issue.

 

Thanks for any replies.

 

Tom

Thanks for such a swift reply, I hadn't spotted that You Tube ad!

 

Found my childhood banknote collection in my parents attic at the weekend and keen to restart.

Hi DampPatch, I collected the whole series aswell as a child. I thought it was fantastic but it was strange that the full series does not seem to be in much demand (when I check eBay for prices it is selling at). How did you get on?

Sounds quite interesting. Can anyone share some scans from an issue or two?

He NumisDave, many thanks for posting the scans. Looks like a nice resource, perhaps very well suited to kids. Is it still being published?

No, not being published any more. From what I can tell, looks like 100 magazines were published as a fortnightly series starting around 15 years ago. Very well suited to kids, but as there seems to be little published numismatic information around that covers basic worldwide collecting, also well-suited to new-to-the-hobby grown-ups as well!
