Though I don't have that diverse collection, I generally have currencies from UAE, Russia, USA, UK, France, Singapore, and South Africa. I generaly get them from my cousins and family members coz they tavel a lot. I also have a good collection of Indian currencies, from the very ancient times...

whil in school i had this as my hobby and collected some currencies.sometimes i exchange currencies with my friends which i posses in excess for the ones which i dont have in my collection. after a while i lost interest and gave them to my cousin but still have some coins and 2 currency notes of china (dated 1948)I am keeping this one as safe because its the oldest in my collection which i want to preserve.

Is your cousin still continuing your collection and has your cousin added some currencies to your collection too?

We are ex-military, so my husband travelled. He also had friends that traveled. I have money from Germany and east Germany, Saudi, Zimbabwe, Hong Kong, The Netherlands, Austria, England, France, Italy, Sweden. There are some that I haven't identified where they are from yet. They are in no language I have ever seen before. It's fun to collect currency from other countries, though.

yeah, I see the face of my father as he shows us his collection and reminisce his wonderful experience from that country.
