This compilation of high-resolution scans reveals colourful snippets of currency from 23 countries dating from the 1800s to the present day – including a portrait of rebellion leader Samuel Sharpe on the Jamaican 50 dollar bill, an engraving of Tenochtitlan on a 100 peso note and a kaleidoscopic sunset on China’s 5 yuan note – that show how notions of value have evolved over time.
