I just got one of the new 10 dollar bills today...

god what a mess. It would take too long to pick apart what's wrong with this, looks like over 100 different people designed it. I'm surprised they didn't sell off the small amount of negative space left (like the odd white oval on the back) as ad space. Can anybody in the US Government design? This is by far the worth design they have ever come up with. :rolleyes: I know they have their reasons but that not an excuse for poor design. It's not like they can't afford it.

it's designed like that to prevent counterfeiting.

When I saw it at the Fed, the president was really excited about it. He showed us a pre-production $10 bill back in october, IIRC.

I don't really like american currency. Too easily counterfeited.
I love Euro bills. I absolutely love them. Different colors, different bill lengths, HOLOGRAMS.

*sigh*
I don't like US currency.

FWIW, US money isn't paper. It's cotton and linen.

Still paper, or in this case toilet paper.

It's a counterfeit protection measure. They didn't purposefully make it look bad, just to offend you. It's to protect you. They have to get redesigned every 5 to 7 years, to keep ahead of the counterfeiters. Even though old tender is still legal, it gets removed fro circulation slowly.

If I were in charge of printing money, I would use a different type entirely, like the Euro of the Australian dollar.

The way it is now (same paper, same size for all bills) it's all too easy to bleach a $1 bill and print a $20 on it.

Stupid Federal Reserve won't listen to me.. :D

I for one, really like the new design. It matches the $20 & $50 bills nicely. I also like how each bill is becoming a slightly different hue.

The one thing that bothers me is that US money never matches itself. It takes so long to update each bill, by the time the entire line is finished, they have to start all over again. :rolleyes:
And we keep updating it so often (to supposedly protect against counterfeiting), that it's stupid. If I were a counterfeiter, and the US had just come out with the new $10 bill, I would just counterfeit the old bill, and it would be a good 3-5 years before anyone suspected anything.

Why can't the US come up with a good design (like the ones they have now), come out with them all at once ($1, $5, $10, $20, $50, $100) and just keep them for at least 10-15 years?

I am sorry to say Katie but US money is made out of paper. There are dozens of ways to make paper; some sources for it are: wood, flux, linen, papyrus, rugs, cotton even bamboo and grass clippings, but it is still a paper. Practically anything that contains the cellulose can be used to make paper.

Cotton is good for printing money because of its hight durability. Currently there is only one mill that supplies US Treasury with substrate for money and that is Crane & Co. They also make cotton paper for commercial use, though with different ingredients. I believe there are only two people who actually know the proper ingredients of US banknotes. :D

EDIT: I don't like the look of the new 10 dollar bill. >$10>BORING<$10<

Yes, it's ugly. It appears to be strictly based on security measures alone. The paper is indeed a special government blend that is near impossible to reproduce. I watched a video on it. Kind of neat. There's the watermark(s), the inserted plastic? strip, the color-changing ink, the micro-printing technology, etc. etc. There's really a lot of security measures going on in there, but- the new twenties a few years back had all this and managed to look good. What happened?

In regards to other, rainbow colored money, I'll take the green any day. :D

Are the entire notes made of plastic, or just the clear logo? I saw some over the summer but they didn't feel like plastic... maybe it's just me.

I really like the look of yours, but I hate the different sizes. :(

Yep, they're entirely plastic. They can start feeling a bit papery if they get put through the wash by accident and do tear on occasion. The different sizes have never bothered me that much either.

That's struck me as a little strange... to have a bill for such a small denomination.

Here in the UK we have 2 coins as well (US$3.51 according to Calculator).

The smallest notes are 5 and when you do get them, they're usually battered as hell tough life, being a 5 note.

I dont think that ever going to happen in the US. Yeah they have the "golden dollar" coins which are great for some things but the fact is I dont like caring around coins in my pocket. Just to heavy. now I try not to get more than 4-5 1 dollar bills in my wallet at any one time but I would not like to caring around 4-5 coins in my pockets. Heck I have a coin glass I keep where at the end of the day I just put empty my pocket and throw that days change in the glass. If it was not for 1 dollar bills that glass would sky rocket it value and I dont want to.

As for paying for stuff like many people I normally use plastic but I like having 20-30 bucks in cash and 1 check on me at almost all times. It nice to have those items when you need it. Plus it not like I am caring that much extra stuff on me. It enough to be useful when I need it and if I need to spend more than 20 bucks I can normally go plastic. But there is still quite a bit in this world that really only uses cash.

I've got a couple 2 coins saved from my last trip across the pond in addition to a bunch of other coins the bank wouldn't exchange back. On another note, why does (only?) Scotland have 1 notes? I have 3 of those left as the bank manager here couldn't identify them as legitimate foreign currency.

I love the gold dollar coins. Along with $2 bills, they're great for tipping and the like. My spare change gets rolled and taken to the bank and converted to gold dollars/$2 bills.

It's funny you mention durability 'cause, AFAIK, that's one reason US bills are still paper and don't have holograms on them. The holograms and such get destroyed by the "torture tests" that materials for US bills have to pass.
I've never had a bill so beat up that I couldn't spend it, and as long as you have at least half of the bill you can take it to a bank and exchange it for a non-messed up bill.

Personally, I dislike the color and geometric explosions that adorn many non-US currencies.

Americans hate coins. We have half-dollars and dollar coins (2 versions over the past 20 or so years) and neither are popular. I only see half dollars in casinos at this point. The dollar coins were poorly thought out and are about the same size as a quarter. Carrying change is a hassle. My car's console must have 20 dollars in change stored in it.

We have $1 and $2 bills (also very unpopular). Would rather carry bills than coins.

Personally, I hate cash. I use my debit card for every transaction I possibly can.

Don't worry - on the few occasions that I have Scottish 1 notes, I get funny looks even in England. Most of them have figured out that accepting the 10/20 ones are fine.

Scotland has a 1 note (issued by Royal Bank of Scotland) and 100 note (issued by all three Scottish issuing banks). The Scottish banks having the right to print their own money is a holdover from the Act of Union - although it is still underwritten by the Bank of England (the Scottish banks 'pay' the B of E for the currency they are printing). As a Scot, I think the Bank of Scotland notes are much prettier than their English equivalent.

The whole UK used to have 1 notes but they were phased out in favour of the coins after a few years of having both. They did get filthy very quickly. There was a bit of an uproar from those who didn't like the idea of lugging around lots of coins and the Royal Bank of Scotland decided to keep some 'good feeling' and continue printing 1 notes.

The good thing with small denomination notes is that when tipping, it's a lot easier to press a couple of them into someone's hand than coins!

Concur. The only time I spent in England on the last trip was passing through Gatwick twice, so I spent two weeks slowly changing English notes for Scottish as I spent.

I imagine there was a bigger uproar when the system was changed from 1=240p.

I do like the way that the 1 coins have a variety of designs on the reverse, rather like our more recent State Quarters program. If memory serves, though, your designs are indicative of in which mint the coin was struck, yes?

No, they're done to represent the year in which they were made (in part). The design alternates between a general UK one, followed by a Scottish, Welsh, Northern Irish and English before going back to the start of the cycle. They don't always create a new theme for each cycle though - sometimes they just seem to repeat an old one

The original 1 coin with a royal crest was followed by a Scottish one with thistle, then a leek for Wales - can't recall the Irish one, and then an oak tree for England. Some had different inscriptions around the edge 'Nemo me impune lacessit' for Scotland for example.

The next phase of them were the symbols associated with the countries - the Lion Rampant, the Welsh Dragon, the Celtic Cross and the English three lions.

The current cycle is 'bridges' - We've had the Forth Rail bridge for Scotland last year and they're currently minting the Menai Straits for Wales

The article specifically stated that PhotoShop had this feature, and while not actually in use the program also has a feature to recognise currency and email the Fed's that someone is trying to copy it on a particular machine.

Actually for your earlier post - You have to love a country that memorializes machinery.

"Massey Ferguson tractor

It was on tractors such as this that Sir Edmund Hillary drove to the South Pole. A stalwart of New Zealand farming life, these tractors proved adaptable to the harsh Antarctic conditions, requiring only minor modifications."

You also have to love machinery that only requires minor modifications.

I like colorful money - just wish I had a bit more of it in my pocket.

Somebody has to make sure that he doesn't get too excited, otherwise he might choke on a pretzel and faint again...


That would be his ticket to get his face on a bill.

President of the Federal Reserve of Dallas, Houston branch, sorry I didn't specify.
