50,005 Banknotes on Colnect

Just as a banknote is thin in size but has value much beyond its measure in weight, the Banknotes category may not be the largest on Colnect in quantity, but its meaning and worth are way beyond its number of items. Each banknote added to the catalog is a substantial addition to the catalog.

With that said, thanks to the beautiful work of the Banknotes coordinator on Colnect, Vidami Istvan [mozistv], and the categories editors and contributors, the Banknotes catalog has reached the impressive milestone of 50,005 Banknotes listed on our Colnect catalog.

The catalog has grown and so has its diversity. Banknotes is not the oldest collectible item type, but still we have the oldest banknote on Colnect, a 300 cash Ming Dynasty Chinese note from the year 1368. You can do also a nice leap of over half a millennium forward in time and see the beautiful modern banknotes of 2014.

Around 400 new banknotes are added to the catalog every month. You can see the new notes to join the catalog here. Have banknotes that are still not on the catalog? Would like to help the category grow? Learn how to become a contributor on Colnect on our Catalog Contribution Guidelines page.

The category coordinator is dedicating efforts to make the catalog not only as large as possible, but complete with all accurate information, including beautiful pictures. What is a good catalog without good quality pictures? Right now we are looking for collectors willing to help adding pictures to banknotes with a missing picture. There are 2,770 active Banknote Collectors on Colnect and the category needs your help!

Thank you to all who made this wonderful catalog possible and to all who will make it even better in the future.
