Fantasy issues are typically designed for countries or regions where official banknotes are not issued. These notes are not recognized by a sovereign state and are not intended for circulation and hold no legal tender status.
Fantasy banknotes are not printed by the government, lack any real monetary value, and cannot be used for transactions. Instead, they serve as novelty items or gifts. It comes in various styles, used for gag gifts, commemoration, appreciation, promotion, or raising awareness for a cause. While fantasy banknotes may resemble actual currency, their purpose lies in non-monetary exchanges, their art, and symbolic gestures rather than financial transactions.
