French banknotes from around the world exhume art, romanticism and flair; a combination that results in these beautiful banknote artworks worth far beyond their face value.

Banknotes have always attracted economic attention and the rich socio-cultural, political, artistic and symbolic values have gone unnoticed during exchange. This presentation aims to address that banknotes are not merely mediums of exchange but mediums of communication.
In France, the French francs have already been replaced by the Euro, almost 20 years ago. It is time to take a look at one of the most beautiful monetary galleries from around the world to appreciate the contribution of the real wealth and value of exchange.
