"Mason" word on dollar bill

"Mason" word, it is just another masonic symbolism on the dollar bill:

The ritual of Freemasonry is well endowed with symbols – things familiar that could convey a hidden meaning to those initiated. Man uses signs, pictures, emblems and words etc to convey ideas from individual to individual and some of the aforementioned lend themselves to symbolism more than others. This was especially so in the Age of Enlightenment during the 18th century.

New $100 note official design

Newly designed $100 note aims to thwart counterfeiters with advanced security features, top U.S. Treasury and Federal Reserve officials said on Wednesday:

The "new Benjamins" to be released in February 2011 retain the traditional look of the U.S. currency, with Benjamin Franklin's portrait. They aim to foil counterfeiters with difficult and costly to reproduce features such as a blue three-dimensional security ribbon with alternating images of bells and the number 100 that move and change as the viewing angle is tilted.

The new notes, which cost slightly more to produce, also feature a bell image inside a picture of an inkwell that changes from copper to green when tilted, as well as a large "100" that does the same.

"As with previous U.S. currency redesigns, this note incorporates the best technology available to ensure we're staying ahead of counterfeiters," U.S. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner said at a Treasury Department unveiling ceremony. "Welcome to the new Benjamins."

The $100 note is the most often counterfeited denomination of U.S. currency outside the United States due to its broad circulation overseas. It is the highest-denominated note issued by the Federal Reserve.

The approximately 6.5 billion older design $100s already in circulation will remain legal tender after the new notes are released next year.

BEATING THE SUPERNOTE

In recent years, U.S. officials have been trying to combat the continued production of extremely high-quality counterfeit $100 notes they say are produced in North Korea, dubbed the "supernote," which are undetectable to nearly all but the most sophisticated currency experts.

The U.S. Secret Service, the agency charged with policing the cash dollar's integrity, maintains that less than 1/100th of one percent of the $890 billion in physical U.S. currency in circulation is counterfeit. But Secret Service officials say they still encounter supernotes and other highly sophisticated fakes from overseas.

In the United States, the $20 note is the most frequently counterfeited denomination.

The new Benjamins have been in development since 2003. The blue security ribbon is woven into the note's fabric -- not printed on. Another security strip, visible to the left of Franklin's head when the note is held up to light, is embedded into the fabric. Like the old note, the new one has a watermark of Franklin's portrait, also visible when held up to light.

The old notes will be destroyed and replaced as they pass through the Federal Reserve system.

John Large, special agent in charge of the Secret Service's criminal investigations division, said the features were designed to make it easy for merchants and consumers to verify the $100 note's authenticity with a quick examination.

"The best defense against counterfeiters we have is an educated public that can easily authenticate the new $100 note," Lange said.

Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke said U.S. officials will work to educate people around the world about the new design. Unlike in the past, when most cash dollars were held domestically, as many as two thirds of Federal Reserve notes now in circulation are outside the United States, he added.

Guess dog size

Do you know exact size of currencies in your wallet? Look, it can be useful to measure quickly something or somebody with some acceptable accuracy:

The size of the United States one-dollar bill (the most common denomination of U.S. currency) is approximately 6.14 x 2.61 in = 155.956 x 66.294 mm.

One dollar facts:

The first president, George Washington, painted by Gilbert Stuart, is currently featured on the obverse, while the Great Seal of the United States is featured on the reverse. The one-dollar bill has the second oldest design of all U.S. currency currently being produced, after the two-dollar bill. The obverse debuted in 1963 when the $1 bill first became a Federal Reserve Note. The Bureau of Engraving and Printing says the average life of a $1 bill in circulation is 21 months before it is replaced due to wear. Approximately 45% of all U.S. currency produced today are one-dollar bills. All $1 bills produced today are Federal Reserve Notes. One-dollar bills are delivered by Federal Reserve Banks in blue straps. The inclusion of "In God We Trust" on all currency was required by law in 1955. The national motto first appeared on paper money in 1957.

Moneygami

Moneygami is origami made from currency available in everyone’s purse. By itself, origami is the traditional Japanese art of paper folding. The word, literally meaning to fold (oru) paper (kami), therefore correct name of this human art, judging by the translation of origami, should be called orimoney. The goal of this art is to create a representation of an object using geometric folds and crease patterns preferably without gluing or cutting the paper, and using only one piece of paper.

U.S. Dollar ReDe$ign

With a new President of United States, Barack Obama, a lot of peoples wait for changes. People say what this country needs is a new vision, a new purpose, something to believe, something to HOPE for, something to CHANGE on a very simple level. Most people already make these small steps for the better future. Between them - Richard Smith, a creative strategy consultant who specializes in transforming brands into wants and desires. He has created a very interested project - "Dollar ReDe$ign Project": It seems so obvious to Richard that the ‘only’ realistic way for a swift economic recovery is through a thorough, in-depth, rebranding scheme – starting with the redesign of the iconic US Dollar – He thinks, "it’s the ‘only’ pragmatic way to add some realistic stimulation into our lives!"

With his web-site he collects good samples of the dollar redesign submitted by his like-minded designers. There are some good works and some not:

These designs are NOT legal tender.
