Nice lot of notes there, Naidu - I think that Costa Rican 5 Colones note is a very popular design amongst most people. It was one I had to have too! ;)

Fascinatingly similar in the passionate artistic merit to the French notes, ie the Merson 100 FF and the 5000FF Flameng of 1918:

Wow... how come that note hasn't made it into your "Pretty Ladies - France" thread? I see some lookers there...

 

I saw that note and thought "man, I really got to get me one of those." Thanks for sharing the price. My dreams are crushed.

that french note is simply awesome. notes like that make me seriously rethink my current policy of modern + uncirculated only. the prices definitely keep me in check!

 

those haitian notes are a great design, aren't they? i was going to mention them in the 'favorite design' thread, but the criteria was to pick out just one note. ;) other nicely designed series i like are taiwan, malta, switzerland, hungary, and scotland's clydesdale bank. also portugal's ships & explorers series, before they made the switch to the euro.

 

and i know my other posts on this topic stated my buying was finished for the nexyt year or so...but i fell victim to an impulse buy. it's not even a real banknote! heheh...this is my last one for sure. no more buying after this! :ninja:

It is well out of what I will pay for a banknote too. I saw an Uncirculated example a few years ago. I can just imagine what it goes for.

heheh...i picked that one up from a disney collector. they're a pretty hardcore group, and only 500 of those notes were printed. you can tell your wife i spent plenty more than $50 dollars for "mickey mouse money". ;)

 

i have scottishmoney to thank for getting me into disneydollars, but he has kids. heheh...i don't have any excuse whatsoever for having so many. :ninja:

Hi 'De Orc'

 

All the best in you collection..i do have some notes from cambodia too. It's true about the temples there, specially the one and only ANGKOR WAT. :ninja:

 

Angkor Wat:

Angkor Wat (or Angkor Vat) is a temple at Angkor, Cambodia, built for King Suryavarman II in the early 12th century as his state temple and capital city. The largest and best-preserved temple at the site, it is the only one to have remained a significant religious centre — first Hindu, dedicated to Vishnu, then Buddhist — since its foundation. The temple is the epitome of the high classical style of Khmer architecture. It has become a symbol of Cambodia, appearing on its national flag, and it is the country's prime attraction for visitors.

 

Angkor Wat combines two basic plans of Khmer temple architecture: the temple mountain and the later galleried temples. It is designed to represent Mount Meru, home of the gods in Hindu mythology: within a moat and an outer wall 3.6 km (2.2 miles) long are three rectangular galleries, each raised above the next. At the centre of the temple stands a quincunx of towers. Unlike most Angkorian temples, Angkor Wat is oriented to the west; scholars are divided as to the significance of this. As well as for the grandeur and harmony of the architecture, the temple is admired for its extensive bas-reliefs and for the numerous devatas adorning its walls.
