In your opinion, which country boasts the most beautiful currency? It could be 'beautiful' in the way they choose the subject that fronts the note (a public figure of great importance, etc).

Personally, I like the Euro! Rather modernist with a hint of culture.

However, I don't like the design of the Chinese Yuan (RMB).

i think the australian ones are the best! theyre bright, and kinda plastic so it doesnt matter if you get pushed in the pool with ur wallet in ur pocket - im pretty sure thats why they designed it like that :P

I like the Japanese Yen looks. Looks powerful from far with Japanese patterns. For me, whenever I look at Yen, Yakuza strikes in my mind.....

The 10 Hong Kong Dollars note is by far the best I have ever seen! There are 2 different sorts, but the one I am on about is the one with the little window in it! It is really amazing, it also feels really nice.

That makes two votes. That one really is amazing!

I'm confused...you mean there's a little squarish aperture in the middle of the note? Or is the 'hole' sealed by a transparent film...can you actually poke something through it? Does it get ripped easily?

There is a little round 'window' that is sealed over, but you can look through it. You have to feel it as well, it just feels really nice!
