Tracking bills of other currencies - the definitive guide (probably)

Post by Montgomery Burns » Wed Mar 23, 2016 7:24 pm

There are countless references to other tracking sites in our forum, but I don't think there has been a thread that lists them thoroughly. Well, I hope to achieve that here.

The links page at the main site and Wikipedia's entry on bill tracking are good places to start but are not complete and up-to-date. Onwards with the list (when applicable, I've provided links to threads concerning specific sites):

Asia

Message in a Bill - Image JPY/Yen - http://www.msg-bill.com/

Europe

Dosh Tracker - :flag-uk: GBP/Pound sterling - http://www.doshtracker.co.uk/
Grn Trip - Image UAH/Hryvnia - https://www.grn-trip.com/
Roobex - Image RUB/Ruble - http://roobex.ru/

North America

¿On' Ta' Benito? - Image MXN/Peso - http://www.ontabenito.com/
Where's George - Image USD/Dollar - https://www.wheresgeorge.com/
Where's Willy - Image CAD/Dollar - https://www.whereswilly.com/

Oceania

Money Tracker - Image AUD/Dollar - https://www.moneytracker.com.au/


Other options (I'd recommend using the sites listed previously as they have larger user-bases, but I feel I should also mention these):

Canadian Money Tracker - Image CAD/Dollar - http://www.cdn-money.ca/
Track Dollar - Image USD/Dollar - http://www.trackdollar.com/

Inactive or defunct:

http://www.currencypath.com/ An ambitious tracking project that had a number of "ups and downs" before it went offline indefinitely.

http://www.wheresmymoola.co.za/ South African rand notes could be tracked here. Currently down.

http://www.osatsu.net/ A tracking site for the Japanese yen once lived here. The URL has been acquired for other purposes.
http://www.trackgandhi.com/ This domain was registered with the intention of tracking Indian rupee bills, but it had a very short existence.
http://www.wheresnt.com/
http://www.wheresrenminbi.com/ These two "Wheres" domains have expired, leaving us with fewer tracking opportunities in Asia.

http://www.cashfollow.ch/ A site for tracking Swiss franc notes which had a fairly long life. The URL has been acquired for a new purpose.
http://www.cupura.ru/ The first Russian ruble bill tracking site.
http://www.findlizzy.co.uk/ This site had a decently-sized userbase of British pound trackers, but that, sadly, did not stop its demise.
http://www.kovesdapenzed.hu/ Hungarian forint.
http://www.moja-lova.com/ The first Croatian kuna tracker.
http://www.sek-tracker.se/ The original Swedish krona tracker. The site is still up, but only seems to contain information about the project.
http://www.sedlarna.se/ Another tracking site for kronas. The site is online, but, like others here, does not seem fully functional.

Where's Your Money is not just for pounds. They also deal with other currencies, at least euros and dollars.

I did find that site in my searches. I opted not to list it, partly because users there have the habit of posting pictures of notes - upon further inspection, it seems they're careful about not showing serial numbers - but mostly because I made the choice of not listing any other site for euros. I've seen it happen in the past, it can be... complicated.

I just linked to this thread on Reddit, because someone asked "What is a hobby you can get into for almost no money?"

Ooh, interesting. Well played! :) Although with 18, 000+ comments at the moment, I fear that comment is hopelessly lost. :lol:

Also, let me just mention another minor update to the thread. Added a few forum links, changed the ruble tracker (they keep dying and coming back).

Still possible to enter notes. But there are less than ~10 active trackers :-(

Thanks for that. I will put it back in Europe's list. Or I will change the name of the last list to "Inactive, defunct or defective". :lol:

Update:

* added a couple of notes about one or two sites.
* changed the ruble tracking site back to Roobex because it seems to be working consistently again, and has the largest user-base of this currency.

Thanks for this. I've decided to include a short list called "Other options" because I feel sites that have been around for a long time - such as Track Dollar or Cdn. Money Tracker - deserve a mention, even if they don't have the largest user-bases.
