Millionaire is just a matter of perspective so swap your sterling and dollars for Iranian Rial and you too could be throwing hundreds just like your favourite celebrities.

Who remembers the Lira? With its phenomenal exchange rate for British holidaymakers I remember as a kid the exhilaration of seeing my pocket money transformed into stacks of 2,000, 5,000 and 10,000 Lira notes. The European Union put an end to all that when they consolidated currencies into one all-encompassing religion: the Euro. Spoiled sports.
