Currency (Paper Monies / Bank Notes)

Article Tools

Imagery where currency has been shot flat, or straight-on (where 80% or more of the bill is displayed) would not be suitable for licensing. Furthermore, any series of imagery where the combined content (as a whole) may result in a full product (complete bill) is also not suitable for licensing. Bank notes / bills should not be in full view, nor represented in their exact dimensions.

With the above said, paper currencies that are no longer in circulation may be acceptable for both commercial and editorial use.

Currency featuring the likeness of Queen Elizabeth II is unsuitable for commercial use content, however may be acceptable in editorial use content, notwithstanding the above noted restrictions on currency.

It is also worth mentioning that many brands of photo editing software will not open flat scans of paper currency due to anti-counterfeiting code written into the program itself.
