my mum worked there and brought some home to show us when they first came out, was an exciting time

Brazil had animals on their banknotes for a while, that was pretty cool

:smiley: that would make sense actually, not sure though. i remember they withdrew and replaced all the tenners, twenties etc with a different colour after the robbery but not sure if the fivers were affected.

The only interesting ones I have in that drawer everyone has that’s full of old holiday currency and other useless junk are these Tanzanian shillings with giraffes on them :giraffe:
