Nope, just fake pieces of polymer. If you get any please just post them to me, I will exchange you real money in the form of a silver round 50 cent coin per "5" "0" note.
I know this may seem silly to you but I do.t mind doing you this favour as believe it or not I like to collect these notes.
It's a piece of plastic with a drawing of a dead guy on it. The rest is just what you want to pretend that it is.
its not good enough to retired on
the confidence level ranges from 0 to 100, place dependent and individual dependent
the nether world can't accept it,
time is always a factor
An excellent point.
This was probably worth something in Northern China during Genghis Khan's time.
The only people in China that'd value this now? A dealer in antiques or a private collector of antiquities.
These are dog teeth, this was a bridal payment that was enough to purchase a bride once upon a time in a certain culture
This is a shiny rock that once I could have exchanged for a night with a scarlet women once upon a time in a certain culture
now if I wanted to trade either of them I would have to accept those colourful pieces of plastic
Times change, you have to move with the times or go broke
^^ I'll trade you a genuine silver coin of the realm for that gaudy-looking rock..
It is proof people will put greed and stupidity to enslave themselves before anything else ...
Probably not going to be around long enough to matter. Soon all payments will be electronic then you won't even have the bit of plastic to get concerned over.
There are better stores of wealth
There are better means of transaction
It would be foolish to rely on electronic systems ...
NASA to launch mission to the surface of the Sun to protect Earth from 'huge solar event'
History is full of foolishness.
"Is this real money?" funny you should ask.
Anyone with a bit of research can find that Gold & Silver are 'money' the stuff you are referring to is 'currency' - (like playing cards, or 'YAP' stones, or cigarettes) _JOHNLGALT.
Everything listed as "Conspicuous" is simply typographical styling and has no legal implications.
For example, the "5" and the "0" are not a "different font size", they're the same font which happens to use non-lining numerals of which the "5" is an ascender and the "0" is x-height. It's a centuries old convention.
The Oxford English Styles Manual does not have force of law in Australia, nor has there ever been a legal requirement for money to be printed on bond paper. Perhaps there may have been an notice from a colonial governor prior to Federation, but the current legal authority is the Reserve Bank Act 1959 (https://www.legislation.gov.au/Details/C2015C00201) Sections 32 and 34(2).
The fact that I wrote "sections" rather than use the typographical symbol "§§" (the plural of §) also means nothing.
The government is legally obligated to take it for all your debts, so must be real.
Money is only what people agree that it is. The Inca, for example, had lots of gold, but did not use it as money, only as a gift for their emperor -"tears of the sun" as it were. To say that gold and silver are always money is incorrect; they often have been (and in my book they still are), but there is no absolute when it comes to money. As Paul Volker said (paraphrasing), money is all about confidence.

Funny money, but it's fiat, so hey what can you expect?
