As of 19 May 2017, 253 chapters (each a stand-alone country-specific catalog) of The Banknote Book have been published as individual high-resolution PDF files. This represents a total of 3,940 pages covering 39,120 varieties, including thousands of notes not listed in Krause’s “Pick” catalog, officially known as the Standard Catalog of World Paper Money (SCWPM).

If you do not see a country of interest listed below, please be patient. Some countries are much more challenging to complete than others due to the large number of notes to be cataloged, as well as the difficulty in obtaining information about and images of rare issues. However, rest assured that the goal is to cover every country as soon as possible.
