The banknote is a kind of document that is issued in every country and serves as a means of payment.
Loans: The individual currencies
Each country or currency area has special banknotes that are distributed by the central bank. Basically, every country has its own banknotes. Exceptions are Europe, which all have the euro and the West and Central African countries. In Hong Kong, the banknotes are distributed among three banks, which is unique in the world. There are even some private central banks that are responsible for distributing the banknotes. But that is now only the case in Northern Ireland, Macau and Scotland. But there are also a few dependent areas that get their currency this way.
The banknotes for loans
There is one valuable banknote that is actually in circulation. This is the 10,000 Brunei dollar bill and the 10,000 Singapore dollar bill. Each of these bills has a value of 6,554 euros. The Singapore Dollar bill is still in circulation but has not been produced since 2014. These banknotes were mainly used in interbank transactions. There are a few other notes of value, including the 1,000 franc note, the 500 latu note and the 500 euro note. It is precisely the bills with high denominations that have during inflation very little purchasing power. So it happened that the 5,000 So’m note was only worth 52 cents.
Paying in cash with banknotes like this is extremely difficult because the change alone causes problems in most shops. Many shops do not accept high banknotes at all. They have determined that, for example, the 200 euro note is the highest note that they accept when buying.
Banknotes as legal tender for loans
Coins and banknotes are now considered legal tender for loans. By issuing banknotes and coins, the central bank gives up a right to consideration. The banknote holder can buy something in return with the banknotes. Thanks to the Central Bank, he has the right to do so. The consideration must have the value of the banknote.
However, there is currently no currency law and therefore there is no redemption obligation. Every debtor who can settle his debts with the help of banknotes has the right to do so. In addition, everyone is a believer obliged to accept the banknotes. However, he can specify the number of banknotes he would like to accept. He is not obliged to accept an infinite number of banknotes. Each banknote represents a fixed value. This value is the numerical value and as long as inflation is constant, the value of the banknote is also the same.
