When I check new members for their location, the website gives the name of their currency; some are pretty strange sounding.
Here in the US we have the penny,nickle,dime,quarter,50 cent piece(old), and 1 dollar coin(not used much at all) for our coins. For paper money we have the 1 dollar bill , 2 dollar bill(rare to see), the 5, 10, 20, and 50 dollar paper bills. I know we have 100 dollar and higher bills, but I never see anything that big, LOL.
How about where you live, what do you have for coins and paper money??

Paper - 5 pounds, 10 pounds, 20 pounds, 50 pounds (rare, but I work in a shop so I see them more than most regular folks)

The bills larger than $100 have been out of print since the 1930s.

I hardly ever see $50 and $100 bills used.

Our notes:

Our coins:



You can get a £5 coin too, not in normal circulation but it is legal tender - they're commemorative. I only ever saw one, I don't remember what it was commemorating.

I remember the old currency too. Although it was decimalised before I was born, they still kept the old coins in circulation for years. I remember shillings, which were used for 5p, and florins, which were used for 10p.

I don't live in the Philippines, but I was stationed there twice, deployed there once, and made several port visits while stationed aboard the USS Midway...I still have an interest in the country.

The monetary unit is known internationally as the Peso. The term used in the Philippines and on the currency is Piso. It's not often that I use Wikipedia as a source, but this article seems to have good information about the currency (including images):

1000 rupees only seen at the time of salary in my bank account :)
