A New Year is one of the most exciting times for collectors around the World. New themes, new design techniques, even new production material are all introduced proudly by various nation’s currency producers. How does one keep up to date with new currency for the coming new year? A search engine is all you need.
Let’s say you collect coins and paper money from Mexico. Fire up your favorite search engine and search for “bank of Mexico”. Once you find the Central Bank of Mexico’s Web site, you’ll find a link to “Banknotes and Coins”. And there you will find many listings of past, present, and future coins and banknotes like the new Mexico 50 Peso Polymer Banknote.
Keep in mind that some currency issuing nations like the U.S. and Canada have different governing bodies for coins and banknotes. In the U.S., coins are under the authority of the U.S. Mint. Banknotes are governed by the Federal Reserve and Bureau of Engraving and Printing and ultimately the Department of the Treasury. For Canadian Coins, you’ll want to see the Royal Canadian Mint’s Web site. There you may find Canada’s amazing new glow in the dark coin. For Canada Banknotes, you’ll want to visit the Bank of Canada’s Web site where you will find their attractive new polymer banknote series.
No matter what country piques your collecting interest, you’ll not only find what’s to come in the new year. You’ll also discover rich fascinating historical information of currency from the country’s past. We’ll see you in 2017 when you come back up for air. 😉
