An album for banknotes and coins that have images of mountains and mountain related things. I've only a few types so please add to if you can or update scruffy examples. Preferably circulating types and preferably ones that you have yourself though. Anyone have a (Genesis of) Palau 2006 $5 coin?

There's a forum thread here with some more examples. I suppose Mount Rushmore on the South Dakota quarter should be here also.

There are some tables so things can be segregated and organised alphabetically. Will edit these periodically so any submitted image is included and modify categories depending on what's available.

I'd rather keep the stamps separated in another album, there are so many that coins might be flooded in them in the future

Re: stamps

Absolutely, I'm happy to let someone else take care of that if they have a mind to. Have changed the album name now. Cheers.

Good idea!
I attached the Khan Tengri note.
Here's another one which should be included:

Wow, fantastic, I didn't know there were already a few on SP! Great looking notes, will have a search around the site for others. Thanks!

Re: Mountain money

Ah thanks, important oversight! Done now, will likely change it around from time to time depending on submissions.

Re: Mountain money

Had a look yesterday evening in my own collection at home and noticed the Austrian and Canadian ones. And I found few more googling this morning. Basically, all mountainous countries attached to their natural heritage do or did have some coin with some mountain or nature pattern.
However I noticed a lot of "special" coins I never saw before, like medals or silver coins, which I think should be off this collection. Only money that people use in daily life is real money (I try to stick to it at least in my home collection)

Re: Mountain money

I don't really collect non-circulating currency either but will see on a case by case basis as some are really good. Thanks for your recent submissions but I would prefer that the images in this album are just for ones with mountains on, not wildlife and flowers etc. Perhaps you could start a separate one for those and attach it as a Related object? Or I can make two separate tables dividing the two groups.

Re: Mountain money

If you look on internet you'll find masses of such nice silver coins or collection coins, in such amounts that the circulating currency might be a minority of them...
As you want for the wildlife, maybe I can remove couple of the redundant ones (the edelweiss is pre and post euro), but i thought the Ibex, the gentian and the edelweiss are such emblematic mountains patterns that they could deserve it. Of course I won't do it with other plants on coins, and I think you won't find many more mountain fauna/fauna in circulating currency. Up to you...

better like this

I like the new presentation. Perhaps you could separate bills and coins in two parts ?
