The world of banknotes
A unique exhibition of banknotes from 222 countries was opened at the „Aleko Konstantinov“ Museum House in Svishtov, the Municipality Press Center reported. 401 unique banknotes from the former officer's personal collection, engineer Peter Stanchev, impressed the dozens present at the opening of the exhibit. Stanchev said it was a pleasure for him to share so much money with the people of his hometown of Svishtov.
The banknotes on display cover a period from World War II to the present day. The only banknote of this period is the old Soviet silver coin from 1937. This is the year of the most severe repressions imposed by the Stalin regime, says Peter Stanchev.
When he started his bizarre hobby in 1985, he had two goals - to teach his two daughters to know money and countries, and to learn to respect each other's money. That is why both of his daughters today generously thank him for supplying him with banknotes from various places in the world they visit.
The author of the exhibition told some interesting stories about his hobby and explained that some of the banknotes on display were still in circulation, but some were no longer. The collector thanked the municipality of Svishtov for the hospitality and shared with the audience his poem My City, which he wrote with love for his native Svishtov. The director of the Culture and Cultural Heritage Directorate, Rosen Marinov thanked Eng. Stanchev for the exhibits shown and emphasized that the exhibition contributed to the diversity of the cultural program for the city holidays.
