Tag: banknote values
The latest version of the paper money collectors website RealBanknotes.com is still under construction. However, lots of progress has been made in the last couple of weeks, and although I can’t pin-point a date, I am hoping to have the latest version online soon. It features a much more elaborate database, with updated values, and added functions such as a members section and forums. However, be forewarned: the members section will be ready a few months after the launch of the site. The front-end will be online in the near future, and the back-end … well … in the future ;)
However, with the current version we are approaching 1.5 MILLION banknote views. Not bad considering that the site was launched just over a year ago. Anyways, enough pats on the back for myself.
Here is a preview of the new site:
The listing of paper money from China is the last hurdle in my bid to add images and catalog values, from the 2008 catalog, to RealBanknotes.com. When I began China consisted of about 4000 banknotes. From the onset I wanted to combine Japanese China, Taiwan, Chinese Puppet Banks, etc into one category: China. This was to make the search process easier for visitors. However, I found that I cannot process 12000 catalog values at once, because the system is programmed to do an entire country in one shot. Hence, I have retracted and re-created Chinese subsidiaries, as follows:
The divisions have already been created. Also, values for all subsections excluding the Republic of China have been added to the database. Images for some of the subsections have been uploaded as well. Its been a few hours of work for me, so I had better get back to some paid work, but I hope to have the remainder of values added soon. Pictures will be sure to follow. I should have the entire 2008 catalog added soon. Then maybe it will be time for a re-design and update? Who knows …
