I recall meeting a Canadian in the 20th century who mocked our currency. It’s all two colors, there is no difference between the dollar amounts. I remember thinking at the time, at least our currency doesn’t look like it was designed by a preschool class.
So here I am in Europe today. Now I know we discussed currency in a previous post but it’s worth revisiting once again.
Now why did they go and do that? Why did they make the 100 Euro bill larger than the other bills? See I use a Tiffany money clip (thank you Bart for your wedding party gift). And when I lived in the states I always put the higher denomination under the lower denomination. Why advertise to thieves that I’m bankrolling C notes?
But in Europe you have no choice! The stinking C note is larger than the little bills and sticks out farther than the little bills! So it looks like I’m hiding it in my billfold while clearly not.
