American Numismatic Association

Show me the money!

This museum in Colorado Springs is all about money – coins and paper money, foreign and domestic.

Paper money in the United States is quite detailed, in part to prevent counterfeiting, but is basically green.  Paper money in foreign countries remind me of postage stamps.  They are often much more colorful than ours.

The photos you are seeing are all taken through glass cases (they don’t just leave cash lying around…) so they might appear slightly blurred.





What’s wrong with this next picture?  (Hint: there is a mirror behind the bill)
