Banknote origami is a fun numismatic sideline. Here's a story about a British firm giving away folder banknotes as a publicity stunt.
Interest idea! -Editor
Hundreds of origami dogs made out of U.K. banknotes were randomly placed in the streets of London this
week as part of a campaign to show how the average person overpays on their life insurance.
The stunt was carried out by online life insurance provider Beagle Street, with a team of origami experts spending hours folding five
hundred dogs out of £10 notes.
The small paper beagles were then let loose in different locations across the capital, for passersby to
find and take away with them. The ‘Release the Pounds’ campaign was thought up by the company to demonstrate their aim to put money back
into people’s pockets.
More of the £10 origami dogs are due to be released in other cities across the U.K. in the next few weeks.
