Correct, Arc de Triomphe, the monument commissioned by Napoleon to commemorate the victories of the French armies.

The reverse shows the Dome of the Hôtel des Invalides, where Napoleon's body rests in a huge stone sarcophagus.

There's been some really nice additions lately. That French note really pops out with design and color!
For me, I have a Netherlands 25 Gulden note from 1971 featuring Jan Pieterszoon Sweelinck, a composer who lived from 1562 - 1621. It's part of my musical themed collection now.

Not the prettiest banknote from the Philippines (P-140 issued in 1949) but the price was right & it's one of their last English series. I'm happy it got here (Canada) after its 9 week voyage from Turkey (which I suppose wasn't so bad considering the COVID19 pandemic has pretty much slowed down global postal service to a crawl).

But still a nice looking specimen. Well done.

I like that Philippines 200 peso walk2dwater.
Picked up a couple of Replacement banknotes recently, here's one of the two, 10 Shillings (1967) sig. John Standish Fforde

Walk2dwater - Nice!

ScotsGreyhoud - In the US the replacement notes have a star... What designates replacement on the Shilling Note?
Your note looks uncirculated - very nice.

mtuma3, on Bank of England 10 Shillings Replacement banknotes the most common serial prefix was M.
Early 10 Shilling notes used T_ _D or O1A O2A O3A up to 35A
Then M _ _
£1 notes used a wider variety of prefixes for Replacement banknotes too, the likes of S _ _ S, M _ _, M _ _ R, _ _ M, R _ _ M, T _ _ M, M S _ _, etc
The higher denomination notes also have various prefixes.
I believe the last £1 replacement prefix was M01 1970-78
A banknote collectors' book is needed, I got one from eBay & it's very handy for checking serial numbers, I only collect old 10 shilling or £1 notes.
Hope that kind of helps, it's a minefield

Thanks... Your old money system was confusing to this yank! New system much easier for me.
My wife and I travel to the UK about every other year. She has family just outside Edinburgh and more family in Epsom, outside London.
Her Grandmother worked for King George IV in the Royal Laundry... My Mom's side of the family came from Yorkshire, so I have a mix of Scot & English on that side.

mtuma3, Edinburgh's nice, very busy with tourists usually, plenty to see, not just now of course, sadly.
I'm near Loch Lomond, in the West.
Another popular place for visitors.
On the banknote side, I enjoy searching the likes of eBay & then checking my book for the serial, I got a Replacement £1 a little while back for cheap, not sure the seller realised it was a Replacement, but my wee book did

LOL

Pity those of us who had to learn imperial measurements, different systems for length, area, fluid volume, weight, ...
I'm sure there was some logic in it somewhere, but as a kid I never understood why a hundredweight was 112 pounds (lb).

ScotsGreyhound... A couple years ago we stayed at the old ferri building hotel in Port Appin... Wonderful area...
Drove over the Mountains in the snow on (to me) the wrong side of the road! Lorries coming around the bends half in my lane at 70mph... white knuckle trip... LOL

mtuma3, Port Appin, the West Highlands? Beautiful up there, like another world.
Did you experience the famous 'midgies'?
Our version of the mosquito.
