The back of this world banknote atlas feature the the reserve of the world banknotes and some remarks of the currency use.

The country name and its currency are printed at the bottom of each banknote. They are printed in two different languages namely English and Chinese. This is a good piece of educational reference to all the younger generation to promote the hobby of collecting banknotes. At lease, we now can identify a country not just through its map or flag, but through its banknote too.
