WILL POLYMER NOTES MAKE "PAPER MONEY" TERM OBSOLETE?

Don Cleveland writes: "A recent topic of conversation at the
monthly meeting of the Melbourne (Australia) Chapter of the
International Bank Note Society was the proliferation of
banknotes printed on polymer.  We did not add them up, but
several countries now use polymer for all their currency, and
about 20 have circulated single issues on polymer.  All together
there are probably well over a hundred different polymer banknotes,
most printed in Australia, but a few, like Taiwan, printed in
the home country on polymer made in Australia.

The conversation then turned to the inaccuracy inherent in the
title of the basic catalog on world banknotes, Krause Publication's
Standard Catalog of World Paper Money.  Started before there were
polymer banknotes, it is now out of step with the times.  Perhaps
it would be better retitled the Standard Catalog of World Printed
Money.  Any other opinions or suggestions?"
