Cleveland, Ohio money exhibition
« on: May 27, 2007, 11:16:01 AM »
What's interesting about this is that the UN has 192 members. Nice fit, except that Switzerland and Taiwan are not members and I'm not sure about Monaco, a coin issing country. Are they included in the exhibition? If so, which countries dropped off the list? Are there any UN members that do not issue coins?

The interactive and child-friendly exhibit runs through July 12. Learn what a country's cash reveals about its art, geography and history.

Admission is free. The exhibit is open 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Thursday (excluding holidays.)
