Numismatic Photographs
Managed By: Icon Here Money, Money, Money
Description:
The object of this category is to find specific sites depicted on officially issued currency (coins and bank notes), photograph them and record the coordinates.
Expanded Description:
Coins and bank notes are windows into our cultures, depicting people, places, objects, and themes that represent who we are and where we live.

For the purposes of this category, a piece of money (coin or bank note) must be officially issued by a governmental authority with a recognized listing in a catalog or government listing. Privately issued or designed money will not be accepted. Special editions of money are highly encouraged if they are a authorized medium of circulation.

Not every coin or bank note will lend itself to inclusion in this category. It must bear the image of something that can actually be visited and photographed. The waymark must include both an image of the coin or bank note and a photograph of its subject.

Instructions for Posting a Numismatic Photographs Waymark:
HOW TO: There are two phases to creating a waymark for this category.

First -- The selection and imaging of a piece of money (coin or bank note). The piece of money must bear the image of something that can actually be visited and photographed. An image of the coin/bank note must be included in the photo gallery. This may be done either by photographing it or scanning it. An image from the web or other source may be used as long as it is either in the public domain or you have permission to use it. Documentation for this permission must be given. Please keep in mind posting a picture of a piece of money might be illegal in some countries of the world! Be sure you have the permission to post a picture of it!

Second -- Find and photograph the site represented on the piece of money. Every attempt should be made to duplicate the vantage point and perspective of the image on the coin/bank note. Since sometimes the money's images are drawings or other representations, this is not always possible. That will be part of the fun of this category.

Since this is a PHOTOGRAPHIC category, the quality of the photographs submitted, both of the piece of money and the actual site, will be taken into consideration when reviewing waymarks, and those that are substandard may be returned. Of course, professional quality photography is not expected, but there should be a reasonable attempt. Use of simple photo editors to enhance photographic quality is encouraged.

DUPLICATES: Sometimes there are duplicates of a location on different pieces of money. Here are the special rules for duplicates in this category.

** You may post only ONE waymark of a particular actual site, even if you have multiple pieces of money of that site. For instance, the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin appears on more than one piece of money but you may post only one waymark for it.

** You may post a waymark of a particular site that ANOTHER person has posted if you use a DIFFERENT coin or bank note.

** If there are multiple, distinctly SEPARATE images on one piece of money, you may post a waymark for each of them.

Though the requirements for this category are specific, the goal is to have FUN! So, if you have an idea that isn't covered here, or if you are in doubt, please ask and we'll see if there is room for some flexibility and creativity here.

NAME: The waymark name MUST follow a specific format -- Name of the site being photographed followed by its location (city, state, country, etc.). To cite an example: Branburg Gate Berlin, Germany

COORDINATES: Obtained by GPS readings on a personal visit to the site. Coordinates from parking areas or viewing points will NOT be accepted unless physical access is somehow limited.

PHOTOS: At least TWO photos are required -- one of the piece of money (coin or bank note) and one of the actual site following the guidelines above. These must be placed in the waymark's photo gallery.

NARRATIVE: Provide as much information as you can about the piece of money and the site.

VARIABLES: These are provided as an easy way for you to communicate basic information about the facility you are documenting. Because not every item applies to every possible waymark, only a few are absolutely required. It is assumed, however, that you will make a good faith effort to provide the information in the variable section. If it appears that this is not the case, the waymark may be returned to you for further information.

Instructions for Visiting a Waymark in this Category:
To post a visit log for this category, you must visit the actual site of the waymark. Post at least one photo that you personally took of the site if at all possible. If you cannot provide a photo for some reason, your visit will still be welcome.

You do NOT need to be a numismatic collector to visit the waymark site, nor do you have to provide a photo of the piece of money. Just having a copy of it in question, however, is not sufficient; you must personally visit the site.
