    Money

    Post by kevin1gamer on Sat 28 Nov 2009, 7:50 pm

    I just felt like making this list, feel free to discuss it. I hope you find it interesting. Please note that discontinued currency, while no longer produced, are still legal tender in the United States of America and can be used to purchase goods and/or services. It should be noted that this list only contains American money (not to be confused with currency), and doesn't contain coins from other countries (including, but not limited to: United Kingdom, France, Germany, Jonathanland, Canada, Australia, Japan, South Korea, and New Zealand). It should also be noted that this list isn't entirely in order (I was originally going to make it in order, but then half-way through making it, I realized that I would have to fill in the middle with the current currency (I was working on discontinued currency at the time), and that would be most disconcerting. I got the idea to do this (and decided I was going to do this) on Thanksgiving (2009), while at my grandma's house, with the whole family (excluding Jonathan McDonald, who unfortunately couldn't attend).

    Jeez, that's a lot of different types of money. Razz Makes me interested in all the different types of money Canada has had throughout history.. might look it up when I get the chance. Very Happy

    I never know they had 5000/10000/100000 dollar bills in America at one point. That's crazy. D:


    Also, your links to that Jonathanland forum and site in multiple topics don't seem to work(for me at least). Just thought I would let you know.
