Most Beautiful Currencies of the World

Having travelled around the world I have laid my hands on many different currencies. I often wonder how beautiful the money looks in some countries compared to others. I'm sure you've also come across such moments when you think, "Hmmm... these folks really have some beautiful money". Everyone has own perspective of what a beautiful currency would be. Whether it is the colors, the portraits, or the overall design that defines a currency as beautiful. This goes for coins as well.


So, what are the most beautiful currencies in the world? David Standish, author of The Art of Money, shares his comments and top picks. And even though he says the European Single Currency has driven many of the beautiful currency notes into extinction, he says there are still some spectacular notes to flash around.
