The German city of Trier is selling thousands of souvenir bank notes with a face value of zero euros in honor of Karl Marx, revolutionary, political philosopher and author of “The Communist Manifesto.”
The city’s tourism department is selling the bills for €3 each to mark Marx’s 200th birthday on May 5.
Marx was born in Trier in 1818 and went to high school in the city before leaving to study at university.
The first run of 5,000 bills sold out after going on sale on Monday. The city is now printing 20,000 more to meet demand from buyers around the world, including Australia, Brazil and the United States.
Karl Marx’s face adorns the souvenir €0 bills from Trier, Germany.
“The souvenir plays on Marx’s criticism of capitalism,” said Norbert Kaethler, managing director of Trier’s tourism and marketing office.
