Yeah, that's the problem, way to much logistic effort (reviewing the pictures, printing the actual bills, making sure they're not counterfeitable) to actually make this work. But it'd be a way to make money out of people's narcissism.
The nuts problem is the one I've already mentioned in the Wikipedia thread, albeit on a smaller scale: mankind always strives to defeat itself. All roads lead to perdition. You can't just have an idea that would benefit everyone without someone pissing in your soup just for the sheer heck of it.
