Where lies the future of cash? New payment technologies and solutions are challenging the traditional domain of banknotes and coins. But how is cash still visible in our daily lives? And what does cash tell us about ourselves and the societies we live in? Cash is connected to all people and things, cascading around the world like a great current, flowing from one person to the next. 

A new international photography exhibition at the Bank of Finland Museum showcases the use of cash worldwide. CashEssentials, a platform for debate on the future of cash, wished to learn more about how cash is used and launched an international photography contest organised by Wipplay, a photography start-up company. Each of the exhibition's stunning photos conveys cash’s universality, but also its diversity.

The exhibition runs from 9 October 2018 through 2 June 2019.

The Bank of Finland Museum is located at Snellmaninkatu 2 in the Kruununhaka district of central Helsinki. Admission to the museum is free of charge.
