    Partly adding to my own childhood collection and a couple new currencies that interest me, and planning a trip to one of these places sooner or later.
    *cough*this one*cough*
    Japanese Yen:
    Coins, ~1950's -p.
    Notes, ~1980's -p.
    (83.5 yen/$1)

    Mexican Pesos:
    Coins and Notes, 1994 -p.
    (12.38 pesos/$1)

    South Korean Won: (Things are getting interesting, would be cool to have a couple notes, keepsake-ish)
    Coins and Notes, 1980's -p.
    (1138 won/$1)

    Chinese Yuan: (Again, interesting, would be fun to have a few, show the kids in a few decades)
    Coins and Notes, 1999 -p.
    (6.65 yuan/$1)

    Whatever google says the exchange rate is at the time is what i'll go with.
    (should only flux a couple cents, i respond pretty quick.)

    I have a single 10,000 yen note somewhere I'd be willing to make this exchange on.

    I'm up by Portland, though. How would you want to make the exchange? I hardly expect you to accept it sight unseen.

    Cool, unfortunately a 10000 is a wee bit out of my price range at the moment, thank you though.

    Not a problem. If you change your mind, let me know. It's not going anywhere. :thumbup:
