I vote Canadian Tire Money to win.



If you have some of the first issue, a $5.00 bill was worth $500.00 about fifteen years ago.

It was the only non-bank issued legal tender currency in North America the last time I looked, and surely the only one with a fictional portrait (Sandy McTire).

There is even a restaurant in town that will take it at par.

I vote the Canadian Currency to go away, it's worth the same as American money right now (it has always looked like Monopoly money to them), but an Ipod is $399.00 in Canada and only $349.00 in the US, it's Loonie.

US dollar, vote it off.

Monopoly money.

I remember once trying to pay for a can of pop with Monopoly money as a joke. It didn't work.

LOL! What Canadian doesn't have some of that in their glove compartment....

Canadian quarters piss me off because I was trying to collect some of the specialty ones back in the day but there's way to many different ones now.

I love it when I go in Italy, Spain, Belgium and Malta soon. It's so good to not have your bank taking fees for the change when you pay with your Visa or at the cash machine.

I vote British Pound off.

What about Life money? Come on, it has Milton Bradley on the $50,000 bill, and Art Linkletter on the $100,000! How can you beat that?

Euro, one of these things just doesn't belong. All of the other currencies are interesting etymologically.

I will elaborate.

Dollar
from Taler, short for Joachimstaler, (people from the city where they were first minted?)

OK, yen is a form of yuan, but I have no history for yuan.

Peso
pensum, something weighed

Money
"Moneta, epithet of Juno, temple of Juno of Rome where money was coined."

Rupee
Sanskrit rupyam - well-formed shape.

Even if you can figure out what it is supposed to look
like, Canadian money wont buy what US dollars
will buy, despite its being worth more.

Canadian to go. Bring on the Americo.

(which will probably still buy more when in the US)

It's coming.

I think most of these coins (and those of many countries)
are made in this building, just a mile or two down the
road. When I was young I used to think that the window was
hanging and ready to drop (if you look at a certain angle).
