Found out what this bill is!

Paper Money-World | user_8845

I got this bill when I went to the World's Fair of Money in 2014. I got this in a little gift bag from the Boy Scouts merit badge class. I found out that it was a 100 kip bill from Laos. It's worth less then a penny here in the US!

Commemoration of the Landing on the Moon

Paper Money-U.S. | Dollar Guy

I would like to propose a change in design for the reverse of the One Dollar Note. I would like to remove the large "One" from the reverse of the One and replace it with a four element change. 1. An astronaut saluting the flag. 2. The U.S. Flag used in the solar wind project on the moon. 3. Lunar Landing Module on the moon. 4. Earh rise as seen from the moon. Also the incorporation of the "In Good We Trust" as mandated by law into the design at the discretion of the engravers. To end of this idea I have contacted a former House member of the NASA Space Committee in Congress and he thinks this is a good idea and offered to help me get in touch with Brian Babin (R-TX) who is now Chairman of the NASA Space Committee and let me pitch my idea to him. Also he has offered to help get the necessary paperwork to the CRS office which helps write bills for introduction into Congress.

FAO Coins and Medals

Coins | user_3992

I have been collecting FAO coins and medals for last few years. I do have a small collection but now am stuck due to lack of information. Does anyone know of a good dedicated guide of FAO coins and relating to number of coins, countries issuing FAO coins, value/prices?I have done some research online, there's not much on these, may be couple of website and blogs and as for guide books there's probably none.Any help will be really appreciated.

Yesterday I traveled to the Money Museum, but I stayed in my own living room! I had been pulling my hair out, trying to find the virtual exhibits, but it is so easy! Here is what you have to do:
