I just submitted one unit of currency right before the countdown. had 29 seconds left. I decided tonight I'd enter and barely made it.  Sorry, I actually hit submit 3 times cause it was loading slow and stressed me out.

I'm guilty of thinking this sounded like a boring challenge on first reading it but then I thought about it some more and it's actually quite a neat one and the entries already up are all looking pretty darn cool.

Does it have to be fictional currency I created myself or could it be currency from an existing game?

Sheqalim? It's pronounced "Shcalim" / Shekel(s)..Jeez, why do you have to pronounce everything different in english from hebrew, it's seriously irritating.

And FYI about that currency, it seems "pixelly" because the characters are constructed from a pattern of two letters of no appearant importance. You can't really see it through that image.

the new zealand 10 dollar note is my favourite note of all time.

i've seen all of them, as i was the first person ever to do work experience at note printing australia. i wish i could suggest an idea. i wanted to wina  comp but my skills aren't as great as other people around here. i'd like to give the idea for people to make an piece based around a poticular emotion. the piece must clearly portray what emotion it is.

If I had the skills, I would for sure go with some King Koopa currency.
