Two World Maps Created with a Country's Own Currency


They say that money makes the world go round but these creatively designed maps give that saying a whole new meaning. Swedish design studio Bedow, run by creative director Perniclas Bedow, produced the world map, above, using international coins. Each continent is formed out of the region's varied native currencies. There is said to be a total of 3,000 coins used for the innovative piece.

Alternatively, redditor The310Investigator created a world map featuring paper currency. With the handy use of photo manipulation, the artist was able to cut the different banknotes into the shape of their respective countries and piece them together like a giant money jigsaw puzzle. After the artist's 12 hours of digital labor, we're treated to a map that showcases what a colorful world we live in!

  • ...on the fifth picture, where Scandinavia is depicted the most, there's a Hungarian forint and a Czechoslovak 50"cent" positioned somewhere in north-western Russia.

    Isn't making a map about putting the correct things into their correct place ?

  • Why is Canada made with US coins?
