The 20s of the 3rd millennium

No collectible items

Tempus fugit

As we head, more or less hesitantly, through the 20s of the third millennium AD (time flies, don’t you think?), here’s a monetary retrospective to help you see the present time not in reverse but rather look it straight in the face.

Here are some tales of the 2020s, somewhat less roaring than the previous century, but no less interesting in terms of history.

From Canada to Sierra Leone via France, the United States, the British Virgin Islands, Armenia, Vietnam, and even Hungary (to name but a few) with coins, banknotes, and other collectible items issued in 2020, 2021, and 2022.
