ambr0zie Posted August 17, 2022 · Member Share Posted August 17, 2022 (edited) Before dedicating completely to ancients, I was a modern coins and banknotes collector. Especially from my country - Romania. I said "was" because all my budget and interest has been allocated to ancients since discovering them. And anyway there are not many banknotes and (especially) coins missing from my collection, the ones missing having obscene prices even in modest conditions and appearing with a very, very low frequency. But tonight I saw a Facebook auction on a local group, for a banknote that was missing from my collection - 1 leu 1937. Usually this banknote is not cheap but the combo of ink stains + a not very popular group allowed me to win it. And I am quite happy for this! What is very interesting for me is, of course, the she wolf with the twins and also the 2 medallions - Trajan and King Decebal of Dacia. This reminded me of other banknotes in my collection having these recurrent motifs. 5.000.000 lei 1947 100.000 lei and 1.000.000 lei 1947 Series of 5000 lei 1943-1945 Trajan's portrait was used as a watermark on 500 lei 1924-1938 The new banknote I bought will be a good match for the others I have having similar type - 1938 and 1920 (also I have the 1915 type) Please post banknotes (and why not, coins) having ancient motifs. I am not skilled in world modern numismatics and notaphily, but I am sure other countries issued banknotes with ancient symbols.
