There seems to be an error. I got 5 points, getting only 22 right. maybe thats because the quiz is so new?

Probably. You can get 5 points by being in the 95th percentile, which is a moving target.

Rather a shame that the euro-countries are excluded. Pre-euro there was certainly a good amount of people on their currency.

If ever there was a quiz of two halves that is it. First column is pretty straight forward. The second column jesus! A few I guessed every country in their region bar the answer but that's a tough tough second column.

The answer Niels Bohr, Denmark has not been correct for about 10 years. The 2009 series does not contain pictures of persons, but danish bridges instead. See them here:

Edited the quiz description. Bridges? That is truly boring.

And the an addition - the older series are of course still valid, but will be taken out of use whenever a bank gets their hands on them ;-)

Loved that quiz! I only got 12, but enjoyed it nonetheless. Time to sharpen my skills after being gone from JetPunk for a while ;)

Niels Bohr is not on the Danish money. There are pictures of bridges, since the National Bank changed it in 2009.

Why is Nikola Tesla on Serbian money?
Level 71
Jan 2, 2020
They're big fans of electric cars in Serbia.

(just kidding, it's because he grew up an ethnic and cultural Serb in the Austro-Hungarian Empire)

Fun fact: us Americans have Toussaint L'Ouverture to thank for about a third of our land.

The Louisiana Purchase was made possible when France's attention was diverted from their American territory to Haiti where L'Ouverture was leading a slave revolt.

I know it is no longer a country, but could Yugoslavia also be accepted for Nikola Tesla?? He was featured on their money after all!

There's a statue of Sun Yat-sen five minutes from my house here in Toronto. I didn't know he was famous in Taiwan - don't know much about his history actually.
Level 60

Sun Yat-Sen is just like the George Washington of Taiwan.

Norway no longer has Edward Munch, or any people for that matter on money. Exception being two coins, where the king is depicted.
