In Silva Jardim, Brazil, There is a Capybara on the Currency!

SILVA JARDIM, Brazil

Look at this fantastic currency! The capivari is used in only one dusty, agricultural town 60 miles north of Rio de Janeiro. The money is an effort by the town to encourage its 23,000 residents to spend locally. I wonder if they know that in certain circles, it could be sold as fine art! If you are reading this blog, chances are good you’d at least stick one on your refrigerator!
