Think about what money looks like to you. For most of us it’s boring, green and white, or copper/silver colored coins; it was only in 2013 that United States bills got a splash of color. But did you know that currency around the world is different depending on where you go?
Some countries use bright colors to distinguish bills, or different sizes for different amounts. Some countries even use plastic or other materials to make their bills last longer! Here are some ideas of what money might look like when you go abroad:
1. ARGENTINA. Argentinan pesos (ARS) are colorful, paper bills that come in amounts from $2-500, and coins that range from 5 centavos to 2 pesos. The fronts have different men from Argentine history, while the backs display things from maps to ships. Argentina plans to release coins of $1, $2, $5, and $10 to replace their paper counterparts in 2017, and will release a $1000 peso note in 2018.
