Spectacular French note there, erafjel.

I also like that Nicaraguan note with the turtles.

Great notes, as usual.

That's a beautiful banknote, erafjel.

I follow this topic because I like seeing beautiful women's faces portrayed skillfully on banknotes produced with the intaglio printing process.

The artistic styles that portray face profiles with a nearly straight line from the top of the forehead to the tip of the nose have always been a curiosity to me. The same goes for coins like the US Morgan dollar or the Barber series.

I like to see realistic depictions of faces, like the face of the young lady on this Bohemia and Moravia 10 Korun Bohemia and Moravia note.

Interesting. Do you have an example or is that on your list to be acquired?

This one is an engraving of a huge shift in power: the swearing in of Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo as president of the Philippines (P-195c):


kind of cool as she's neither a queen, "commoner" nor an allegorical/symbolic figure- but an actual head of state.
