Did you maybe recently buy some currency for a holiday that was cancelled (yes I did) ?
Has the drive for contactless payment left you with a draw full of cash (I wish) ?

This weeks challenge is 'Money'. UK, Foreign, paper, coins and yes even contactless.....Wink
It's not been done for a while so lets see what inventive images we can all come up with around money.

The all important rules:

1. The challenge is just for fun.
2. Your image must be taken after the theme is announced.
3. The image must be uploaded in a comment in this thread by 8pm (UK time) on the following Sunday.
4. Images only in this thread - discussion in the 'Weekly Macro Challenge - Discussion' thread.
5. Only one upload per member.
6. The person who hosts is the judge for that week's challenge and the judge’s decision is final
- but in my case Mrs D does have some input (apparently) Blush
7. The winner gets to create, run and judge the challenge for the following week.
8. No breaking into the kids piggy banks.

Good luck.

In 1970 there were 25 sucres to the US dollar, but in 2000 when this country adopted the US dollar as currency, this small stash was worth about 50 cents.

Left of field, perhaps. But couldn't resist something a bit light hearted. Hope it makes you smile!

Some old Australian three pence pieces my dad brought back from his war days. Found in a white metal Indian cigarette case, seen as background.

Detail from an American 100 dollar bill dated Feb.17th 1864, issued by the Confederate States. In poor condition...
The exif isn't right, as this was taken with a manual lens...correct focal length is 65mm macro

Toy Money

This is from my son Louis' Pick 'n' Mix set which you fill with sweets and is just a bit cheaper than the counter you will find at the cinema. Smile This shows the notes and coins sticking out of the till section.

Thruppence - ancient-ish......
Evil Money - the hologram on a five pound note, when appropriately lit, seems to reveal the evil face of capitalism ....

Well that's it for this week...
Time to cash in the chips and head for the door.
Back in a bit with a decision, when Mrs D has had her input and told me I'm correct.....Wink

Well Ladies and Gentlemen, thank you for all your entries - you certainly haven't made it easy.
But as the Highlander said - There can be only one.

This weeks winner, with undertones of Indiana Jones, and charged with carrying the challenge forward in to July is Andrew with Evil Money

Well done Andrew and again thank you to everyone for your entries.

Very well done, Andrew - I had the winner down as either your entry or Linda's.
Thanks for rattling your loose change at us, Dave.
