Hungarian artist designs beautiful concept money

If you give an artist total freedom in designing new money, you can end up with the most beautiful concepts. Take for example this work by the artist Barbara Bernát who has designed the fictional currency of the Hungarian euro.

The common side of each note features european animals, the other side shows related species of plants. I used the original proportions of the existing euro banknote for my design, as the denomination increases, the size of each banknote is growing. The animals also represent the growth of value.

The higher the denomination, the higher position in the food chain each animal has. She has left out most of the security features to present an image with as much simplicity as possible. One thing she has left on the note is probably also one of the most appealing security features I've ever seen. Holding the note under UV light reveals the ghostly skeleton of the pictured animals!
