    It is a nice idea, but what is the reason for putting him on all the notes?

    Makes no sense at all.
    Are there other countries that ue the same picture on all their bank notes?

    You really wanna see Zumas ugly mug each time you open your wallet? They could have a shower head on the back instead of an animal.

    Dude, the animal pictures are exactly the same as the existing notes (with a bit cut off on the left sides). :whistling:

    Hey man,,, as far as I know the pula is like that as well... But speaking under correction... Then I think the pound also changed a while back to have the queen on the notes... I know the 5,10,20,50 denominations have her on.,, not sure of higher denominations...

    I know :p, but what im trying to say is, the BIG 5 alone looks far better. I don't like the other side.

    Just happy that i can still swipe my card, without taking chances opening my wallet and seeing things i don't wanna see.
