Is this the 'domestic' variety? What do the Chinese and Lebanese varieties of this note look like? Or have they not been issued yet? (I think that they normally come out within a few months of the domestic version).
I actually don't really like the fact that they change the look of the money all the time. That doesn't mean I don't like the new look, just the fact that it keeps changing. I know they do it to try to keep one step ahead of the counterfeiters, but that in itself is impossible.
One thing I have noticed as a person who gets to count money. We always get counterfeits of a new note right after the new designs are released. I think it's because they figure nobody is that familiar with them yet.
I will never get used to modern looking paper money. There is something about the older notes that I find more acceptable as money. The old engraving was so intricate and beautiful. They just looked so balanced and right. As far as these new notes go, I like them when I get them and I hate them when I have to let them go and that to me is all they are worth.
