One of my other hobbies besides airliners is collecting paper currency. Several years ago Australia was the first country to convert to a type of plastic curreny called polymer. New Zealand has also done this. There have been rumors spreading that Mexico will become the third country in the world to do this. Have you heard any thing about it? Also if you have been to Australia or New Zealand and used this "plastic" money please telll me about it. If you liked it or not. Thanks

In fact, over 20 countries have polymer/Tyvek money in circulation. Haiti was the first to issue polymer currency in 1980. If it is that widespread, and for that matter that old, I assume there is probably very little difference sensual difference between regular paper money and polymer; I assume the polymer is more durable.

By the way, most "paper" notes are not really paper but cotton.

Vw, try filling your Euroland gaps ASAP - you won´t have much time left, as you know. Well, I guess you´ll be able to buy them later as well, but more expensive than now.

Australia's currency is the most difficult to counterfit in the world. We have security keys (the clear see-through panel), multi coloured and multi sized. It's also far more durable and washable.

Oh and it's pretty!
