Where are the world's most beautiful banknotes to be found? Surely our dowdy pound notes or the equally boring US dollar bills won't make the top ten, let alone the top twenty. Even the euro notes, a brand new currency, hardly set the world on fire, despite coming with many different designs that vary from country to country.

No, to find more colourful banknotes you have to look further afield, to African and Asian countries and obscure island states. Here is Walletpop's selection of the best.

And some of them go for far more than their face value on Ebay. Armenia issued its first-ever 100,000 Dram (£170) note last year, the largest denomination in the Eurasian country (pictured). It depicts King Abgar V of Edessa and is being sold on Ebay for $365.99 (£239).

This slightly racy one comes from the Cook Islands.
