Old UK magazine 'Money of the World'

Recommended Posts



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.

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.




:bthumbsup: Good luck, Tom!

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!

Hi Annette,

I have the majority of the rest of the collection if you're interested? I was just about to get rid of them, so would be much happier if they go to a new home!


Kind regards,

Hi Lorna, if you haven’t got rid of the magazine collection I would like to express an interest in taking them from you, I broke off my subscription while collecting and am keen to try to advance my copies.
