Currency Illusions
Contest Directions: Apparently the currency super-imposing craze is spreading into the US too, and not just with celebrity money illusions, but also with Currency Building Illusions.
In your entries you should include a banknote (or any country) folded so that any object (building, etc.) depicted on the banknote (except for people) is merged with any object of your choice, similar to how it's done in this example. Feel welcome to use currencies of any countries - most of them have national famous buildings and objects that can be superimposed and merged with real life objects. You can use any banknote parts, not just the central ones. Please don't forget to include the name of the object / building in the entry title. As you remember our prequel contest - Celebrity Money - was featured by many media sources and websites (e.g. Digg). Let's make this contest popular too with many quality entries!

This contest is fueled by the following news: Currency is divided into the following components: * The currency system of the State and also the monetary units of this system; * Foreign currency; * The balance amount Foreign currency: а) Cash, i.e. currency notes, which are in circulation and are a legitimate mode of payment in foreign states and also currency notes, withdrawn or to be withdrawn from circulation but can be exchanged for currency notes (banknotes, coins, treasury notes); b) Non-cash, i.e. means in accounts, expressed in currency notes of the foreign state The legal mode of payment - currency notes, which in accordance with the legislation of the given state, are considered mandatory to accept for repayment of the debt within the territory of a given state. The restriction on the use of currency notes as a legitimate mode of payment can be established depending on the sum or from the type of payment. Two main requirements are set to the foreign currency: the authenticity and fitness for its use as currency. Classification of currencies: Many currency classifications exist in science, in particular: With respect to the state/issuer: * National; * Foreign; * Collective (For example - Euro) With respect to the exchange possibility into other currency: * Easily convertible; * Partially convertible; * Unconvertible With respect to the parity of exchange rates: * Strong/Solid (i.e. Stable against its face value and to the exchange rates of other currencies); * Weak/Soft With respect to the validity period: * Constant; * Temporary The real unit i.e., fulfilling the function of money directly or conditionally, for example, ECU (European Currency Unit) is assigned depending upon the actual existence. The convertibility of currency: The judicial criteria for the convertibility of currencies: - The presence of the market rate of exchange, the existence of a currency stock exchange (foreign exchange markets), a flexible exchange rate, reflecting real parity between supply and demand; * The absence of standard established restrictions on currency operations; * The right of the resident and nonresident to freely own and dispose of the currency, including make any operations.
