Aloha, not sure where I should of posted this one cause it a little bit of art, a little bit of of general and a bit of ohana as well...


One of the coolest tips I ever recieved was from Mr and Mrs Bongofury at the big art sale in the Tiki Farm parking lot back in April. They had given me this beautiful 3 dollar bill from the Cook Islands. Take a look at how awesome this bill looks. I have seen some of the coinage from Australia and New Zealand also which pays tribute to other local animals and plants. Why our american money has only cryptic symbols and dead white guys is beyond me.
Anybody else have any neat cha-ching to show off?

Can you imagine the uproar from our small-minded, puritan society if the US Mint issued money with a nude woman on it.

I went to the bank specially to get some of those $3 notes, but I didn't see the $10 or I would have got one of those as well. Next time!
Here's a few coins I've gathered:
Solomon Islands, Fiji


NZ




Cook Islands

Great thread....I love money. I saved some coinage and bills from New Zealand and Australia, but looks like most of that is posted.

I hate the look of our US coins and bills. They are an ugly color and the pictures suck big time. Only going to rant a little about the women thang....but damnit....why did the only time a women get put on US money be a poorly shaped coin that is set up to fail right from the start!!!! ARGH

US money doesn't have to display people...how about places, plants and animals and then hopefully nobody will be offended. How about some bright colors....aqua, pink, brown, purple.......sigh.

That Cook Island money is beautiful.

Was imbibing at London Vic's, met this guy at the bar. I was a bit short, ya know? Lacking funds, busted, broke...skint. Conversion rate, a bad night at the Blackjack table, "entertainment" expenses. The well was dry. I gave the guy the details, the whole sob story. Say brother, can you spare a tenner, even a fiver? Help a chap out, just enough to get me to Heathrow, catch my flight home. "Hmmph!" he said, "how do I know you won't just drink away whatever I give you?"

Oh, I got drinking money:

I think this thread should be called Tiki money.

My two cents... sorry, my ten francs.
