Stamps and Money

After many years of collecting Judaica and “Jews on stamps” it occurred to me to look into the presence of Jewish personalities on bank notes issued by governments around the world. The number of different bank notes is much smaller than that of stamps and few persons of Jewish extraction have been so honored by countries which are officially gentile. None have been chosen by muslim countries.
