Banknotebank - Country selections

Recommended Posts

Hi!
I reckon it's time to add more countries and territories to the list, so I don't have to choose "Unknown" a little now and then.

Countries I find lacking are:

Europe: Czechoslovakia, Faroe Islands, Greenland, Kosovo, Soviet Union

Asia: Abkhazia, Korea^, (Portuguese/East) Timor, Tannu Tuva, Tatarstan

Africa: Rep. Congo*, DR Congo, Mayotte, Réunion, Somaliland, South Sudan

Australia, Oceania: New Caledonia

Caribbean: Montserrat

South America: Antarctica(?), Easter Island(?)

 

^Banknotes issued before Korea split in two, should I add them as South or North?

*Now both Congos (Republic of the Congo, and Democratic Republic of the Congo) are mashed together as "Congo". This, I reckon, is incorrect.

 

Any other countries/territories that you're missing?

Nice to add these. I’m sure we have some who have these notes in their collections.

I have have most of them. For example, I've put Czechoslovakia under Czech Republic, even though I first planned to add the notes with Czech text under Czech Republic, and the ones with Slovak text under Slovakia, but in the end I decided to put them all together.

It's really unconsistent, since Yugoslavia exist in the list. But not Czechoslovakia and Soviet Union.

I don't like having Faroese notes under Denmark and South Sudanese notes under Sudan. Hopefully this can be fixed soon. 😊

Add as many to the list as you want! I'd definitely separate Czechia (the new name) from Slovakia and Czech Republic. Good luck with South Sudan! Do they even have a currency yet?

You mean separate Czechoslovakia from Czech Republic (or Czechia if you so prefer) and Slovakia.

About the name Czechia: It's not really about a name change per se. It more than Czech Republic is the formal name, and now they want a more informal name. E.g. No one is talking about The Hellenic Republic in everyday speech. We simply say Greece.

Seriously? They've had their own curreny since 2011. I have full set of the 2011 series of 0.05-100 Pounds. Last year a new 500 Pounds were released.
