We continue to travel around the world using banknotes in our pocket. Today we are in Russia, Solovetsky Islands in the White Sea, where you can find well-known Solovetsky Monastery and Solovki prison camp.
On the 500 rubles bill and far away in the background of the photo - Solovetsky Monastery, the greatest citadel of Christianity in the Russian North before being turned into a special Soviet prison and labor camp (1926–1939), which served as a prototype for the GULAG system. Situated on the Solovetsky Islands in the White Sea, the monastery braved many changes of fortune and military sieges.

The Haj (Arabic: حج Ḥajj) is the annual pilgrimage to Mecca, Saudi Arabia. It is one of the largest annual pilgrimages in the world, and is the fifth pillar of Islam, a religious duty that must be carried out at least once in their lifetime by every able-bodied Muslim who can afford to do so. The Hajj is a demonstration of the solidarity of the Muslim people, and their submission to God (Allah in the Arabic language).
With this pilgrimage in mind, Pakistan has printed 10 and 100 Rupee banknotes up until 1994 that were to be used by pilgrims along the route of their pilgrimage. I am not quite sure what the root intent was, but in 1994 these banknotes were discontinued and all such notes that were on hand were destroyed.

Here is an opinion of the one banknote collector on the blog.realbanknotes.com:
"My name is om007 and from time to time i will contribute to this very interesting blog... I once found a Roman coin in the wild and i must admit it was quite a thrill but i do find coins quite limiting in terms of size, colors, motifs, information.
Here is a picture with my biggest (Russia 1912), a current 10 Swiss Francs and my smallest banknote (Morocco 1944). I must have all the sizes in between."
"Every note is full of faces or historical places, celebrities or weird symbol. As Proteus does for each note, there is always a lot to search and discover in the fine prints, small differences, historical references. The materials used are also quite different... From rough cardboard to polymer and all the changing quality of papers... From one-sided to multi-layer security and hologram. A lot of banknotes also have been used to doodle, write, annotate or share info with the next person to receive it... All this makes the Banknotes collection much more appealing to me than a pure Coin collection..."
