Neat, Ajay and cleverly presented. Sorry I can't respond in kind. The bridges on the euroland banknotes do not exist. Or do they? (http://www.worldofcoins.eu/forum/index.php/topic,10547.0.html)

Both funny and instructive, thanks for the photos! I particularly like those where the note and the real object "merge", as in your replies #1 or #11 for example.

A terrific thread, particularly the views where the notes and the scenery complete each other. Great stuff!

This one pairing, however, is a mismatch; the American 100-dollar note pictures Independence Hall in Philadelphia, but the photograph is of the South Dakota State Capitol Building in Pierre.

Since it seems to have gotten lost in the shuffle, I'll mention again that this one pairing is a mismatch; the American 100-dollar note pictures Independence Hall in Philadelphia, but the photograph offered in the thread is of the South Dakota State Capitol Building in Pierre.

Your previous comment is right here, in Reply #27. Ha, I've been to both places but did not notice that error here ... What may be a little confusing is that Independence Hall, or rather the "scenery" around it, looks a little different on the currently issued $100. http://www.newmoney.gov/newmoney/files/100_Materials/100_GlossyBack_EN_WEB_031210.pdf  Also, how often would you use a $100 note anyway? :)

Really? And in the offered picture, the State Capitol's not being red brick didn't immediately catch your eye?

Problem is that hardly any of the notes depicted in this topic - including the US $100 bill - I have ever seen "in real life". :)  And the others apparently were fine matches, so ...

Besides, I was in SD in January. It was freezing cold, and the capitol dome in Pierre was primarily, errm, white. The good thing was that, when we got to Mount Rushmore a little later on that trip, we were almost the only visitors there. ;)

Five famous places on Vietnam’s banknotes

Last update 08:00 | 14/12/2013

VietNamNet Bridge – Have you ever noticed the back of the Vietnamese banknotes and learned about the special places printed on them?

Hoi An Bridge Pagoda (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/H%E1%BB%99i_An) on the VND20,000 banknote

(http://img.cdn2.vietnamnet.vn/Images/english/2013/12/10/13/20131210135109-1.jpg)

Hoi An - the World Cultural Heritage - with the iconic image of Pagoda Bridge has been known worldwide. The time of construction of the ancient bridge in Hoi An has not been clearly defined. In old documents of Vietnam, the name of the bridge was Nhat Ban Kieu or Japanese Bridge and that name was founding 1617, meaning that the bridge might be built before that year.

According to legend, in the ocean there was a sea monster called Mamazu by the Japanese. Its head was in Japan, in body was in India and its tail stretched through Hoi An. Every time the monster wriggled its body, earthquake occurred in Japan and Hoi An was not peaceful.

To control the Mamazu, Japanese people worshiped Monkey and the Dog deities on the two heads of the bridge. The Chinese also built a small temple adjacent to the bridge to worship Bac De Chan Vo for the purpose of controlling earthquakes.

The bridge is considered as a sword stabbing into the monster’s back, to hinder it from wriggling its tail to cause earthquakes. In 1653, a pagoda was built on the bridge and since then it has been called Chua Cau or Bridge Pagoda.

Phu Van Lau is a two-story house, facing south. Under the reign of King Minh Mang, two stone steles carving four words "khuynh cai ha ma”, meaning that anyone who passes this house must take off his hat and get off the horse. King Thieu Tri considered Phu Van Lau and the Perfume River as one of the 20 scenic places in Hue.
