I love Turkish Lira.

Venezuela just got new money, which I think looks really nice

Hey guys,

It would be much better to describe the note you're talking about rather than "This country's currency is so nice!". It's too vague!

Or at the very least post pictures:

I like the ruins on the backside of the 20 YTL note. What I hate about the YTL is the face of Atatürk of all of them - I am not is biggest fan. I much rather look at the animals on SA Rand!

And it's issued on April fools' day! I wonder if it's real.

Oh so that's the 'window' you're talking about. It's basically a translucent film over part of the note. It's fairly common, though. And by the way, I feel the design lacks character; I couldn't spot anything that says 'Hong Kong'. It's really a faux pas nowadays to design currency that looks ultra modern but gives nobody a clue what it's trying to be.
