I was thinking, how much aviation themed currency (notes or coins) is there out there. I don't mean special collectors issued notes/coins that were not in general circulation, but just currency in general circulation (including special coins or notes that are issued for general circulation).
To kick the ball rolling, the Australian $20 note features on one side Rev John Flynn, who started what became the Royal Flying Doctors Service. The note includes a picture of De Havilland DH-50 VH-UER.

In the US, they have begun a program with our 25 cent coin, called a "quarter" where for 10 years they will commemorate each of our 50 states with a special coin, 5 states a year in order of when they joined the union...on North Carolina's quarter, it shows the Wright Flyer in flight there...extremely archaic aviation but aviation nonetheless...

Trickijedi - the Australian banknotes lend themselves to money-laundering quite well - I had one (a $5 note) in my jeans when it went through the wash just yesterday. Being made of plastic, it survived the ordeal extremely well!
