At the risk of showing my age (very early 40's). Money used to look great. A big £5 note, as a kid, was something one wanted to keep and not necessarily spend? The imagery of the 'old' notes has gone. A fiver, meh, a tenner, ummm, a twenty pound note, hmmm. I've not seen a £50 note for about a decade. I'm aware this makes no sense - but it kinda does too. Economic crisis. Make people value actual money again?
