Funny how "In God we trust" isn't on any of them

I like money from Australia and Hong Kong. It's so colorful and pretty.

Is money today really worth anything?
Like, if there were nothing left to buy, could I exchange it for its value?

Slideshows are an attempt to maximally expose you to advertising content, not better display the content/images.

Frankly, I'm annoyed with this tactic.

Grow up, content-distributors.

Respect our intelligence, or face space.

;)

P.S. I am currently for sale, and I need money now.

Wasn't a bad history. Had Christopher Lloyd and Steve Buscemi in it. Brendan Frasier, too.

Complete? The current $20 doesn't look like the final one they show.

I find this one to be quite interesting. I'd love to own one, but I saw one come up for auction fetch over 6 grand.

They don't show the monstrosity that is today's 20 dollar bill.

It's like the US Mint lost all design sense about a decade ago.

You may be thinking of the Bureau of Engraving and Printing, but I'd definitely agree with you that the Mint also produces terrible designs these days (aside from the really cool designs that used to be, even the small-ish changes to the portraits of Washington and Lincoln on the quarter and cent make them look ridiculous now).

The Mint has nothing to do with paper money. The Bureau of Engraving and Printing is to blame.

Take any of the old (mid-late 20th c.) FRNs, hold them at arm's length, and the portraits almost look like little B&W photographs. Take today's (1996- ), and they look like drawings.

/why does every likeness of Jackson have to be him holding that cape

It's a little known fact that Jackson is holding that cape because he was the original goddamned Batman

Notice bare-breasted women on the borders.

Best example I could afford.


I have the $1, $2, and $5 from that series, but not the $10 yet. Mine are ungraded, but probably in the 30-40 range. The $10 I am looking at is graded 25, but at $725 is very expensive(and that is dealer price, I am in the business).

I actually had to look at my 1928 $20 and sure enough no "In God We Trust" any where on it.

Please get over it.

Wow, 30+ years ago my dad noticed one of his 20's didn't have IGWT on it. He thought it was counterfeit so he passed it off somewhere as soon as he could.

Andrew Jackson hated paper money and thought we should all use coins, so I think it's ironic he's on a $20 bill.

We have. It does more to secularize your god than it does to sanctify our money.

"For the love of money is the root of all evil." So hey, let's put God's name on it!
