UK money just looks ugly and everyone is used to the USD
I prefer the look of $ to £
I thought money was money, except ours isn't worth much.
Okay, next time you have £100 I'll happily swap it with you for $100.
Shhhh, don't tell him you're making an extra $60 (about).
Really? We're going to lower ourselves to "my country is better than your country"?
If I had my own country, it would be better then everyones!
Our 'ugly' money:
Imagine a banknote with bonnie prince charles of wales who's really not that bonnie. I'd expect he'd only fit on the fifty pound note with those two gignatic plates of meat on the side of his head.
I think the nation's mood on joining the Euro may well change when we get Charles' noggin on our banknotes
I rather liked the look of the Euro... I preferred the color/patterns and nice designs over the green/dark green/light green we're suck with.
Can someone buy things in the UK stores and pay with Euros? Or do they need to convert them into pounds first?
You can only pay with pounds. That's the currency here.
strange i always thought that UK stores accepted both the currencies!
Our notes are just cool these days, especially the pretty much indestructible plastic they are made from... http://www.rba.gov.au/banknotes/types/index.html
US currency confuses me... its all just the same colour! Have to actually look at what I'm doing with it when handling US$.
typically....we just look at the number to tell the difference (1, 5, 20, 50, 100, etc) but I must confess...our currency is boring and not nearly as pretty as the currencies around the world. I have a collection from all over. Recently, my good friend left the U.S. to go back home to Guyana. He brought back with him the currency from the country and it was bright and colorful.
Like West Hollywood or San Francisco?
That is indeed a fine specimen of a woman gracing those notes!
