umm, I think the point was the oil part
and the chip part

but thanks for letting me know

I didn't know currency was cotton
and linen. However, I do believe
the fake counterfeit bills are indeed
paper.

Depends on the qualities of the fakes, the best ones made have always been a mix of cotton/linen mix with paper. It is difficult to purchase such paper though. There was one gent in jolly ol' England if I remember correctly who made some good enough to cash at the bank.

You are right about the (oil) polymers though, I think the main thing is circumventing the counter-fitters, with the plastic use and extra security...Just wait till oil runs out, than money will be really worth something!

Never seen a plastic note melt in a clothes dryer...and i've had plenty go through the process!!


Having an embossed transparency on them will be unusual for a week or 2 for you, and they don't fold up quite like the old paper ones did.

But they last a freakin' lot longer so are cheaper overall.

This seriously no big deal! They've used this in Australia since the 1980s, and in New Zealand since the 1990s. There is no conspiracy fuel here!

It will definitely be Monopoly money(if the US made bills from plastic) in the US, because our USD is about worth that these days.

It's weird, being Australian I find it hard to imagine cash being paper rather than polymer

polymer based currencies are easier to have tracking devices in them
There are many countries that will soon be doing the same

Chile S2 (2011)
Canada S1-S5 (2011)
India S1 (2011)
Gibraltar SH1 (2011)
Swaziland SH3-SH5 (2011)
Israel new issues
Malaysia new issues
Costa Rica S2 (2011)
Switzerland SH1-SH6
Vanuatu S1-S5 (2011)
Guatemala S2 (2011)
Paraguay S2-S7 (2011)
Fiji hybrid (June 2012)

What's that all about?

The amount of intelligence gathered by knowing where money is being spent is limitless.

Second line.

The plastic money will be made from recycled plastic, completely not just a certain percentage, so that is a good thing. To offset the cost of production is the life of the note itself, estimated to last more than 5 times the life of a regular note. Then of course there is the question of counterfeits, it will be next to impossible to copy the new note, with an embedded chip and a unique traceable serial number. The ability to trace any note will be as easy as running a trace ip on a PC to find the last place the note was registered or rune a trace route to see where it has been over the last given period of time.

Learn to look for the big picture. The goal is to eventually switch to a cashless society.
That will enable the governments to harness the - underground economy -.
Every time a transaction takes place the government could - tax - that transaction 5 cents.
Get it?


The trick is to do it in a way way that the general public does not jump up and down and yell
"It's the mark of the beast! 666 !!!"
Timing and perception are critical.

We have microchip inserted in cats and dogs all the time so they can be tracked back to their owners, in a couple more years we will have those same chips inserted in us with all our "pedigree" on it for sure thus eliminating the use of physical money. The chips will contain your credit card numbers and debit card numbers and all sorts of other information in order to make our lives more simple!
