Egyptian Currency

Growing up in the U.S., I got used to plain green and black colored currency, the same drab palette for every denomination.  The first time I saw brightly-colored foreign currency, it looked like Monopoly money.  I thought it was kinda goofy.  Although foreign currencies may look a little funny, as long as shops in that country take them and give you stuff -- who cares, right? 

While Egyptian money is in a downward spiral against the dollar and the Euro (and every other currency), at least the money itself is still very pretty to look at.

How long will Egyptian currency survive?  
Only the Pharaohs know -- and they aren't talking! 

What do you think about brightly-colored currency? Is it artistic or does it remind you of Monopoly money?
