Series that could be combined to create a complete bill are also not acceptable. Angled, curved, or partially visible flat close ups, with 30% or less of the note showing may be acceptable.

Any images of currency, including coins, where the likeness of Queen Elizabeth II is visible, regardless of the country of origin, or the angle, size or context, are not acceptable. This also applies to stamps.
