Hi DC - AT,
I have a question for the readers:

I have a large collection of money from around the world - from various travels over the years. The paper money of different countries is so unique and colorful. I would like to find a way to display it in my home. I was thinking of framing it, but can't find frames of the right size. Anyone have any suggestions or ideas?

What about coins? I have many of those too, but I HATE those felt coin-collector display frames. I don't want to just stick them in a bowl. Any thoughts?

Dear DC Coin Collector,

We've run a few posts that include coin collections as decor...

In his Art Deco home, Joe nicely framed antique coins (shown at left below). The travel-inspired bathroom also included framed coins (shown at left).

Readers: any tips for decorating with coins and bills?
