Japanese currency was redesigned periodically since 1871. During Emperor Shōwa time paper money became colorful and monetary quantifications were revised. The official name of Japan's currency is the "yen". Small notes were issued as part of yen. Here I show an example, a 50 Sen note issued in 1942 and mostly circulating until 1948.

2013 White Mountain New Hampshire Quarter

Coins-United States | AC coin$

My older brother, who served in the US Navy for over eighteen years, once told me, that seeing the entire Navy Band perform and parade on every boot camp graduation was impressive, he recalled that the flag for the state of New Hampshire's motto is "Live free or die." That motto stayed with him thru his military servicetime. The beauty of this New England area state gives a special sense of freedom. New Hampshire entered the Union on June 21, 1788 as the 9th state.

Venezuela's 1965 & 1986 coins

Coins - World | AC coin$

As we travel coinwise thru various countries, features of design and historical relevance come to a distinctive point when choosing coins or paper money to keep for collections.Some of the items I present have indeed much of a historical approach, specifically when it comes to characters who dealt with the liberation of entire countries from exploiting elements. Such is the case of Venezuela's "Libertador" Simón Bolívar who appears in the art of the most modern currency of this South American republic.TheBolivar was adopted by the monetary law of 1879, replacing the short-lived venezolano at a rate of 5 Bolivares = 1 Venezolano. ... Venezuela went off the gold standard in 1930, and in the 1934 the Bolívar exchange rate was fixed in terms of the US Dollar at a rate of 3.914 Bolivares = 1 $USD.
