Today in honor of my gf’s arrival in Spain, I dug out some Peseta’s from a port call in Mallorca, Spain while on a naval training exercise. If you would like to follow her missionary activities in Spain, click here. You can also help support her, if you feel led 🙂
Before the Euro, Spain used the Paseta as currency. If you want to read up on the history of the Peseta, click here.
One of my favorite items to collect while traveling outside the US is currency. Most other countries’ currencies make our money look boring. I love the use of color and art in other currencies. I make a point of collecting at least one of each coin denomination, and one each of the lower bill denominations. One day I’ll make a scrapbook of it all.
Not my best photo, but I’ve got a big homework assignment due tomorrow, so look for a good one tomorrow, after class 🙂
