I picked up a few notes this past week and I think they reflect all the reasons why American currency simply leaves everything else in the dust. I mean seriously, how can anything compete with these beauties:

I can understand your enthusiasm, some US notes are iconic as they have not significantly changed in almost 100 years, however, objectively, there are many beautiful banknotes in the world, including some printed with more than two colors.

Thank you arianzo! Actually, I am Canadian but have always collected American currency and notes like the ones above are the reason why.

You are of course right Dan. The note you posted above is a real beauty! The Canadian Bank of Commerce is still around after all those years and is now called The Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce (or CIBC as everyone calls it these days). It is one of Canada's six "Big Banks" and is still headquartered in Toronto.

Who has expertise in these Canadian Bank of Commerce series? I'd love to see a thread dedicated to this set of designs, with commentary on the different series, printing totals, pricing, etc. I've thought about assembling a set but am not sure where I'd start.

I've got two of the later smaller revisions in XF, would like to get at least the 5,10,20 in both early large and later small...

Those Canadian Bank of Commerce notes look like Canada’s version of the educational series. Beautiful designs.

It's funny that the guy who replied you with the Bank of Commerce banknote is Canadian also :-)
