List of micronation currencies

$10 Nortonian banknote

Micronational currency systems describe the self-declared official currencies of micronations. These currencies are usually created to legitimize the micronations[citation needed] that produce them and few of these currencies are recognized outside these micronations.[citation needed] However some are prized by collectors and may be minted in precious metals and in limited numbers.[citation needed] Emperor Norton I issued his own money (right) that was accepted by local San Franciscans.
