I was pleasantly suprised that Lewes, a town in Britain had just released the latest paper money banknote. 10, 000 notes were printed and are nearly sold our already. Maybe sold out is a wrong way to put it as these notes are not meant for collector's albums, instead they are supposed to remain in circulation and spent in and around the town of Lewes.
So why is this proud English town resorting to releasing a new paper note? The have many reasons but I like the one about it's their answer to the present global credit crunch. They have definitely taken their financial matters seriously and into their own hands.
