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.

Rufus Lee King: "In God We Trust" was added to U.S. currency in 1957. However, it has been used on most of our coinage since 1864.

Please get over it.


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!

I wish they had said why a mass murderer was put on the $20.

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

Rufus Lee King: Twenties are cool, but I prefer some of the tens.

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).

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
//the vignettes on the reverses are pretty good though

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).

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.
