I mean, down deep, we all want it. Heck, we need it. Some people want more than others. But money makes the world go around, that’s for sure.
And though they say money can’t provide happiness, I always say it’s a pretty good start. Think about how often money makes things tough or hurts relationships and lives.
It’s taken me a few years to understand finances a bit. I’m getting better with it and am actually looking to be somewhat debt free (outside of student loans) within the next three years. Of course, I know there could be major purchases that would interfere with that; and then all the normal bills … but I’m talking about things such as credit cards and debt like that.
When I first posted this theme, I had some ideas. I kind of went with said ideas, but the photos aren’t as … exciting … as I hoped. But they will do the job.
For those of us who live in the states, you know our money is boring. It’s green, and it is just there. The coins are OK, but nothing special.
If you look around the world, money is different.
It’s colorful. It’s nice to look at or to use. The denominations are even quite different, as you’ll see. It’s something cool to see color with money and designs that make the money a bit more friendly, so to speak.
What I set out to do was find some money that was nice to look at and share. eBay proved to be the spot as I found a place that sold some good stuff, so that’s what I am sharing.
With all of that in mind, here are my five for February!
1. One billion!
Imagine having the largest bill? Yowza! These bills are from the former Yugoslavia. I couldn’t resist saying I was a billionaire, though!
I love when the bills from other countries just have an interesting look, or what I would refer to as funky. Agree?
3. The colors!
When I look at these bills, from Madagascar, all I can think is the colors! I love how colorful the money is and how it just stands out. It’s so nice to look at.
4. One with nature!
How nice are these bills? The nature is front and center as well. And I like the intricate details.
Even coins from afar have such a nice look to them. The coins in the US aren’t bad, depending what you get. But some coins are just older and just don’t feel exciting.
And there are my five for the month!

I have coins from several countries in Europe from the 1970-80s but for the life of me could not locate them, So I went a totally different direction. The bills are far more exciting than ours. Any idea of the exchange rate?

I had the same idea initially. I have bills from South Africa, featuring their beautiful animals.

That’s some colorful cash, to be sure!

Wow! A billionaire – are you taking Warren Buffet’s lead and giving most of it to charity to improve the world? Ha ha! That’s a fun and funky money collection and I’m excited to see how you put the Momentum lenses through their paces over the coming months.
My kids always love looking at the money from other countries. I love to see how and why countries choose the designs they choose!
