"All The Money In The World" is an awesome book written by Douglas Mudd, the Curator of the American Numismatic Association Money Museum that provides an unique and fascinating overview of the world currency chronically on how political, cultural and economic forces have shaped the development of coinage and paper currency from antiquity through today.

Published in year 2006, this book has a total of 170 pages with gorgeous illustrated color images that covers coinage and paper currency from Western and Eastern Europe, East Asia, India Subcontinent and Southeast Asia, Islamic World, Sub-Saharan Africa, South and North America, Australia and Oceania. Is also provides a comprehensive background or origin and spread of coinage and paper currency.

Despite the title of the book "All The Money In The World", not all the world currency are illustrated in the book. For instant, the East Asia and South East Asia currency cover coin and banknote images on the country of China, Japan, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia and Malaysia only.
