Amazing New Design Ideas for U.S. Dollar Bills - September 19th 2010, 09:41 PM

Hi Everyone!!

I hope you're OK.

Check out the following links.

IF you click on THIS you can see one very clever idea. It's called 'vertical money'. The arguments made in favour of 'vertical money' are very reasonable.

IF you click on THIS you can see 14 more design ideas - created by people from all over the world.

WHICH DESIGN DO YOU LIKE BEST?

And to see what the REAL new $100 bill looks like - click on the link below to watch a YouTube 'introductory' video. [It's only a minute long!] It has amazing new 'safety' features to make it even more difficult to duplicate.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JwEBIC0a4RY

GREAT BIG HUG
Craig!!

The vertical notes are ingenious. I also love the "Money That Works" design - is that pattern engraved onto the paper? Brilliant!

I don't like any of those fan-designed bills. And it's too early to put Obama on one.

That 100 dollar bill looks good though. I think "mixing new with the old" would be the best way to go about something like this.

I like the video of the new $100. It looks awesome.

As for the putting Barak Obama on money, I am 100% against that. What has he done that he deserves to be put on money in place of George Washington?

I like picture # 12, 14, and 15 on the second link. I do think it's about time the USA updates their bills and puts some of those safety features in their money, México already has all those on the money, it will make it harder to duplicate world wide.

Not being black, but being the first makes him historically worthy.

I think they all look awful. I can't stand any of them.

Pardon me, but can anyone explain what's WRONG with our CURRENT paper money? It doesn't seem to me like anything needs to be redesigned.

I like the vertical design, and the 'money that works' design, personally.

I like the new $100 and I like the idea behind vertical money. However I think the rest of the designs are too flashy. I don't think money needs all that color.

I also agree that Obama should be on money.

Some of them are pretty cool. I like the ones showing different historical figures, like Amelia Everheart, and I love the vertical design.

I like the ideas, especially putting all those historical non presidents on them.
I think it'd be okay to have Obama on like, a coin or something just because I think it should wait until after he's out of office.
But yeah, being the first black president is a huge thing. It shows how far America has come with removing segregation.
As far as the nobel prize thing goes...that's completely irrelevant.

I agree it does show how far America has come. But Obama hasn't done anything himself to warrant his placement on our currency. That's what counts.

I don't think people should be considered to be put on money until after AT LEAST 40-50 years. Off the top of my head, We got Washington, Lincoln, Roosevelt, Kennedy, Hamilton, Jefferson, Franklin, Jackson, Sacajewea (dollar coin), and Grant.

I'm sorry, but Obama has not earned his place amongst these names. Maybe much later down the road he will (I don't think so), but for now he doesn't.

So? His skin colour doesn't make him a good president. Sure, he seems to have a LOT more going on upstairs than Bush but him being black (well, half-cast) means very little.

They are very lovely, but I personally don't mind our current money's design either. Also, I also have qualms with putting Obama on a bill at the moment.

I like the "looking back, moving ahead design" I think it's a call back to our heritage while moving our bills ahead to the future.

However I question how redesigning the bill will help the economy. If the Dollar still sucks and no one has any, it's still a pretty piece of paper the government mandates has purchasing power. IT IS NOT GOING TO GIVE ME A JOB ANYTIME SOON!!!!
