When I was a kid, my father tried to get me interested in collecting stamps, but I’ve always been more fascinated by the artwork and design of paper currency and coin. After all, to quote the Liza Minnelli, Joel Gray number in Cabaret, “Money makes the world go around.” Yesterday, money went down, not around, like the balance of my 401k after the Dow plummeted 513 points. If only I had one of these cool pillows I found on Etsy by seller EkoFabric, I could have cried myself to sleep, comforted by the intriguing design of the old Zimbabwean two dollar note. Today, I’m going to do like Ginger Rogers in Gold Diggers of 1933, hum the song “We’re in the Money” while keep my mind on sunnier days ahead and cool design inspired by the almighty dollar.

    i actually own a small foreign currency collection and love the idea of matting and framing some of the notes and/or coins as art! also, currency puzzles are not only a great way to spend a hot afternoon inside, but, once again, framed would be a great additon to your personal art collection!

  3. Awesome, We definitely need vintage brought back to the holiday season. This year we are making each other ornaments and only giving hand made gifts.

  5. Today, the term pound may refer to a number of (primarily British and related) currencies, and a variety of now-obsolete currencies. Some of them, those official in former Italian states and in countries formerly belonging to the Ottoman Empire, are called pound in English, while in the local languages their official name is lira.

  6. Abuse is the improper usage or treatment for a bad purpose, often to unfairly or improperly gain benefit. Abuse can come in many forms, such as: physical or verbal maltreatment, injury, sexual assault, violation, rape, unjust practices; wrongful practice or custom; offense; crime, or otherwise verbal aggression.

  7. The popular misconception is that all hedge funds are volatile — that they all use global macro strategies and place large directional bets on stocks, currencies, bonds, commodities or gold, while using lots of leverage. In reality, less than 5% of hedge funds are global macro funds. Most hedge funds use derivatives only for hedging or don’t use derivatives at all, and many use no leverage.

  8. Stock funds are also subclassified according to their investment style: growth, value or blend (or core). Growth funds seek to invest in stocks of fast-growing companies. Value funds seek to invest in stocks that appear cheaply priced. Blend funds are not biased toward either growth or value.
