One of the types of Banknotes that I have been collecting are "Women on Banknotes"

Have been putting together a list as well as acquiring copies. I am hoping to write a ebook one day (perhaps when I am retired :) ) on the topic with a small bio/history on each woman.

For now here are some samples of Women on Banknotes. From the famous to the obscure.

From Algeria



Queen Elizabeth II



Rock Carvings from Sri Lanka



Liberty Leading the People from France



Spain



East Germany. Woman working on a early computer.

In Sweden there's been a long-ongoing debate (although not as tense) about not what women should be on banknotes, but rather what denominations they should be on. On the new note series women are in total worth less but are more frequent in circulation with the 20 SEK note featuring Astrid Lindgren being the most visible denomination in circulation. The 500 SEK note is usually used instead of a 1000 SEK note featuring Dag Hammarskjöld.

Indonesia's got several women on banknotes.

Tjut Nyak Dhien is on the 1998 Rp 10000. There is Kartini on the 1985 Rp 10000, and appropriately, a female graduating student on its reverse.

Those are just a couple of examples - there are actually quite a few female national heroes. There are also some commoners depicted - for example there is a weaving girl on the current Rp 5000.

A couple are on watermarks. The watermark of the 1986 Rp 5000 is Martha Christina Tiahahu. The watermark of the last Rp 1000 notes are Cut Meutia, I believe.

The final banknote series of the ''Deutsche Mark'' (1990--2002) featured women on the 5 DM, 20 DM, 100 DM and the 500 DM note. 10 DM, 50 DM, 200 DM and 1000 DM notes featured men.
The ''total worth'' of women is less than that of the men. But that was ''compensated'' by the volume. The 100 DM was the most frequent in circulation.

The current English five-pound note has women on both sides - Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse and prison reformer Elizabeth Fry on the reverse:



... and here's an Austrian 100-schilling note with 18th-century painter Angelica Kauffmann, who was one of the founders of the Royal Academy in London:

Would assume QEII is the record holder for most variety of notes (thus far). Would assume her to be the case on coins as well, unless it's Queen Victoria.

Well, since I am voting for her... she should be on a $100... $10 is too cheap for her... LOL..

Well, if you look, there are quite a few countries with women on the notes(that leaves me thinking what U.S has been doing until now? even Canada, our friends up north has long been using QEII on their notes, though there are talks that the next U.S. Dollar will have women on the $20). Norway, Sweden, Denmark, South Korea(my native land), Indonesia, Germany(before Euro),Australia, Austria, Mexico, Colombia(10000 Peso which is among my favorite), North Korea(well, on some of their lower denominations), Eritrea, and so many other nations in the world. Women on the notes is a great idea on the society we live in these days when equality matters, well, on paper at least in seems...

That 5 Pounds note in UNC condition from Northern Ireland is one of the note that I've been searching for, for ages. No-one seems to have this on sale in UNC condition, and the few who have it sometimes asks too much for it... Well...

Mine unfortunately has some ballpoint pen markings on it. A colleague brought it back from a work trip there some years ago.

Here's another pleasant looking young lady on an inflationary note from the former Yugoslavia:

Here's a favorite of mine within this genre, plenty of femininity gracing this German 1908 Series 100 Mark note....

Here's a couple more that have an added interest in representing episodes of out of control inflation and a collapse of the currency represented.

The high denomination top note is from Hungary in 1946, and was very shortlived.

The bottom note is from Brazil, stamped in 1967 to devalue it from 50 Cruzeiros to 5 Centavos (a ratio of 1,000:1).
