Banknotes: Determining the Country of Origin

It is easy to determine the nationality of a banknote when its country of origin is printed on it in, either in English, or in a language using western characters, where the spelling is similar to the English spelling; for example, Türkiye (Turkey) or Moçambique (Mozambique). There are however a number of countries whose banknotes aren’t so easy to identify. For that reason we have produced this page with illustrations of relevant parts of some relatively obscure notes as an identification aid.
