Hobbies help to gain knowledge. Notaphily is such a hobby that will acquaint you with the numerous countries and their currencies.

Today let’s see a note from Slovenia, a country situated in central Europe. The country is located at the crossroads of main European cultural and trade routes. The territory is mostly mountainous and hence a mountain has been depicted on the banknote too!

Let’s see a denomination: 1 Tolar note issued in the year 1990.

Note specifications:
