New additions week 46 - 2014

This week was filled with fantasy as it turned out. For my birthday I got three notes from the Canadian community of Chemainus. It is most famous for its 39 outdoor murals but as it turns out they also have their own local currency: the Chemainus dollar. The currency can be spend at local shops and merchants. Oh, and did I mention it is absolutely gorgeous? On the front it shows the face of Emily Carr, a Canadian artist who was heavily inspired by the indigenous people of the Pacific Northwest Coast. The back of the notes show different paintings by different artists depicting historical scenes and landscapes. For my collection I got the 1, 2 and 5 Chemainus dollar but if you're interested in getting these notes, you can buy different sets or individual pieces via this link

The second set of fantasy notes has 7 very interesting and elaborate pieces showing a variety of themes from the Roman Empire. I have a separate article on them here

A total of 10 new notes in one week? Not bad!
