Yesterday afternoon, my nephew Alcibiades—the proud father of “The Twisters”—received two two-dollar bills from one of his customers. As you probably know, Alcibiades drives a taxi in Panama City, Panama for a living.
He came home very excited waving the greenbacks as a trophy of war. I haven’t seen one of these bills for ages. I think the last one I saw was at my father’s store in Changuinola a trillion years ago.
Below are a couple of snapshots of the rare paper currency no longer in circulation in Panama.
