you're washing money?

Waterproof money is a great idea. We have it in Australia. Fantasic for taking to beach/ surfing/ diving [better than leving it on beach in a bag!] & even better when you get your jeans out of the wash & realise you left $50 in the back pocket...it comes out intact & fresh as a daisy....brings a whole new meaning to laundering money

BTW I think Dutch Guilders were best ...fantastic bright colours...sadly gone thanks to Euro...

yeah, the Euro is not as nice; in France they had nice drawings...

but I didn't like the Austrian Shillings, so whatever.

laundering money is what I meant. A Germanism.

Hey, yeah i gotta admit as I work in a bank i see alot of different currencies coming in and going out, and I can say without a doubt that australian currency is by far the BEST!! its so colourful and bright, and you also have like a little see through plastic bit! and they feel really good too!

Aussi cash - being like the kiwi stuff and plastic can be put into the oven and shrunk (now thats cool - still legal tender too), the print however does rub off after a while.
As for the euro? well they must have got a bunch of the most boring civil engineers in the world for that one, no birds, or faces just the stuffest ugliest bridges and arches it doesn't really represent the contenant of europe.
So happy the UK has a variety of banks producing notes with character - long live the pound !!!

Many a pub quiz has been won by knowing who is on the other side of a twenty pound note.

I can't say I know.....

back in the day...ireland used to have irish pound notes! it was great...you would have like 100 of them in your wallet and feel very rich! then they brought out the pound coin...i guess one can compare it to a 1 dollar bill.

i like the australian notes were they are made out of plastic! cant rip the things! and they always look crispy and new! luvlyyyyyy!

we still have one pound notes in scotland. they're annoying though. another example of thinking you're richer than you are when you think it's a fiver but it's only a poond...and english people think you're having a laugh when you hand it over in change

thats true emma....but its very rare i think to come across a scottish pound note...i lived in scotland for 6 months and never came a cross it. when i moved out of scotland and when i next returned to see some friends for a weekend i came across the scottish pound note once. its crap because in england they dont accept it! actually in lots of parts of england they dont accept scottish notes at all due to counterfeiting.

i love the pound coins though! nice, thick and fat!
