Only pseudo-Simarils & cuddly badgers...Wink Smilie

When did you change to Euros?
First of the month, year.
"God save our gracious quid
Long live our gracuious quid
God save the Quid
Send it Victorious
Happy and Glorious
Long to reign over us
God save the Quid"
We still have our own currency, but apparently we now accept Euros as well.
Yeah, we'll accept your Sweedish SitzMarks and yourDanish Pastries, as well as your British Quids. Abd we'll take your Euro's but absolutely refuse to accept a single Ningi or Pu.
Why no Pu? They fit handily in your back pocket! (if you're Galactacus) Big Smile Smilie
*stupid
lol
euro's look like toy money really. They're all brand new and shiny, never been used before. It'll take me a while to get used to them... Smile Smilie
ROFL! Big Smile Smilie
*stupid
LOL
haha
Good one!
Big Smile Smilie Why didn't I think of that? Smile Smilie

I want us to join the euro's then we can get rid of the queens ugly mug.
I'm dreading when William is made king, as everyone keeps informing me I look like him which is very annouying to an anti-monarcist (I'm not against Monarch's as long as they actually rule the countries and actually fight in the armed force's, instead of immediatly being given rank and a ship that hasn't moved from Manchester ship canal in about twenty-five years *cough Charles*)
I just checked my pockets I have a bit of lint, abag of boiled sweets, a bus pass and a beat up copy of the silmarillion will you accept these as currency?
A couple of weeks ago I was looking at a site about paper currency. There were pictures of bills from nearly every country on earth and I came to the conclusion that America does indeed have the ugliest currency on the planet.

The most beautiful has to be Bhutanese:

Or maybe Macedonian:

compared to the hideous US greenback:

The Euros look kind of plain but at least they have some color on them:

But the coins look great:

That's because the gentlewoman found this ring in one of the back bedrooms of Holyrood, and it imparted that aspect of her personna onto your currency.

Besides, this Yank would feel you Brits were doing a disservice to your monarch were you to carry around in your pockets, images of a grey haired, crown wearing, wrinkled-up old lady. I'm not saying she looks like this, in fact a picture of the ancient Queen Victoria is what popped into my mind, and I am merely using an extreme picture to stress my point: Queens shouldn't be allowed to age on currecy, no matter whose they are or how you feel about the monarcy. Happy Elf Smilie
I think it's really sillyto put the image of any queen of king oon a coin. I mean, whza if they die or are replaced. You'll have to make new coins again. For evey new king or queen you'll have to make new coins. It'll only cost you money. And beside, they are not pretty at all.

But she does look like this!
Our money (South African) has got animals on it, the big 5 I think: rhino, elephant, lion(one of those almost got hold of my neighbour's dog the other day - I can still hear it roaring in the distance) Big Laugh Smilie , buffalo, leopard, plus there's also a joke zero Rand note with a baboon on it. Our money looks okay but it's all pretty worthless.
I think you're right I make bank payments for a south african and israelli companies and they both use either USD GBP

And the euro coins look very much like the canadian toonies.


Yes, they do, don't they. I wonder if the middle falls out of the Euro coins?
I thought it was only the bottom that fell out of currency? Angel Smilie
