I did not find any dedicated thread for sharing polymer banknote images. So i thought it may not be a bad idea to start one. I like looking at images of colourful and intricately designed banknotes and i believe there are many more people like me. This thread, i believe , will be a fun place for that group of people.

I shall start with a few of mine -

Back: Torres del Paine National Park is a national park encompassing mountains, a glacier, a lake, and river-rich areas in southern Chilean Patagonia. The Cordillera del Paine is the centerpiece of the park. At lower center, two alpacas, a domesticated species of South American camelid.

A thread for sharing images of polymer banknotes in your collection

Very nice collection! :)

I collected polymer banknotes for some time, but then stopped it (can't afford coins and banknotes together ;)). Whatever I have, I like it a lot.

Many of the polymer banknotes are available easily and are affordable. It's also a nice gift to give even to those who don't collect banknotes...they always like it (have tried it myself).

What i find from catalog is UK have released two so far, a 5 pound in 2016 and a 10 pound in 2017. I will get those when pocket permits  :), pound/rupee rate is not favourable for Indians.
