Paper Money-World | AC Coin$🌎

China was Nationally awakening withing the first four decades of the past twentieth century. Its first acclaimed President, as an official Republic, was Sun Yat-Sen. His likeness is portrayed in the twenty "custom gold units" banknote's obverse shown here. He ran the country from 1919 to 1925. The image centered on the bill's reverse is the Central Bank of China at Shanghai. This type of note was originally issued to cover customs charges and rights at the main ports, however its circulation became generalized from 1930 well into 1948. The name of this currency was kept as custom gold units or CGUs. It is considered by enthusiasts and many collectors as a sought historical document. Its main attraction is the vertical orientation like most printed materials from China within those years and earlier times.

Paper Money-World | AC Coin$🌎

The official currency of Turkey is the "lirasi" and it was first introduced in 1844. Since then it has undergone several changes, devaluation and challenges against worldwide economy. The beautiful sample I present here belongs to the 1923-2005 period also known as old lirasi. This banknote bears Turkey's most relevant President Kemal Atatürk on its obverse right and the Manavgat Waterfalls on its reverse center. This waterfalls, its surrounding Taurus Mountains and, river is one of the ten most important tourist points in Eastern Europe. President Atatürk's administration brought modernization to Turkish systems and reforms for the people. Ankara and Istambul being the most populated cities became a discovery for many investors during Atatürk's mandate. The colorful banknote shown is rather preserved even after 50 years of possible circulation.
