Hi, my name is Tom Chao. My hobby is collecting paper money from different countries of the world.
I have been collecting paper money since 1991. My goal is to collect at least one note from each issuing country of the world. I started my collection with a mail
order package of 50 different uncirculated world banknotes I bought for $9.95. My earlier purchases were notes selling for under a dollar each. Gradually, however,
I began to add more expensive notes. Eventually as I become a more advanced collector, I got rid of most of those "penny" banknotes. I bought my notes mostly online
from dealers and auction houses.
My blog, Some Interesting Facts About Paper Money, offers timely articles and
commentaries on paper money related topics.
