Show me some cash
While I was sorting the contents of my purse yesterday, I thought of ideas for two posts.
One was the PurseChallenge in which you have to post a picture of your wallet or purse/handbag and list its contents. The other one was about currency used in your country .
One of Valmnz recent post was about nationalities of members of Persona Paper and the comments were so interesting, I have bookmarked it for further reading. Another thing that interests me is what currency is used in your country.
In Pakistan , we use Pak Rupees. The notes come in denominators of Rs.10, Rs.20. Rs, 50, Rs.100, Rs. 500, Rs. 1000 and the biggest denomination is Rs.5000. We also have Rs.2 and Rs.5 coins.
At the moment, the rate of exchange is about $1= Rs.100. The banknotes are of different sizes and color, with larger denominations being bigger than smaller ones.
The banknotes contain the picture of Muhammad-Ali-Jinnah , the founder of Pakistan while there is also crescent and star to represent our country's flag .
What currency is used in your country? Post a picture and describe it in a post with tag CurrencyChallenge .

Since I live in the United States , we use the American Dollar. I like to see money from other countries. Some of them are so colorful!

Even though i stay in my country for so long, i do not know the largest note of my country. I use mainly the smaller notes of value $50 and below.

I live in America, so it's just good old US dollars. I don't have any bigger bills to take pictures of, unfortunately, just some dollar bills.

thisnthat carolscash Tell us a bit more about the "good old US dollars." Who are the people on your notes? Which presidents and which denominations? Do you have 1000$ note or is $500 banknote the biggest denomination. Do write and tell.
