Money notes are not made from paper, it is made mostly from a special blend of cotton and linen. In 1932, when a shortage of cash occurred in Tenino, Washington, USA, “notes” were made out of wood for a brief period. The wood notes came in $1, $5 and $10 values.

The world’s largest coins, in size and standard value, were copper plates used in Alaska around 1850. They were about 3 ft (1 metre) long, about 2 ft (half-a-metre) wide, weighed 90 lb (40 kg), and were worth $2,500. Just like a collector of coins, tokens, and related objects is called a numismatist, a collector of paper money is called a notaphilist.
