Alexander Hamilton’s Facelift (and more)

Email  Print Print  

I’m all for redesigning bills to prevent counterfeiting but the $10 bill was redesigned five years ago, in 2000, and two to five years ahead of their schedule of currency updates (according to the Treasury, they want to update it every 7-10 years). I don’t want to say there are better ways to spend taxpayer’s dollars but I just did and there probably are. That being said, I like the way the new one looks and the added colors make it a lot more fun to see. For images of the new bill as well as the new versions of the $20 and $50, click below.

New $10 Bill:
Ten Dollar Front 2005
Ten Dollar Back 2005

New $20 Bill:
Twenty Dollar Front 2003
Twenty Dollar Back 2003

New $50 Bill:
Fifty Dollar Front 2004
Fifty Dollar Back 2004

And I found an article on CNN/Money that lists a few other currency “flops,” coins or bills that were introduced but didn’t last very long. I didn’t even know about the technicolor $20, that bill actually looks pretty cool.

    The money with the colors is cool and all, but they don’t distribute them everywhere. Here in Memphis, the only money you see floating around is the non-color money. The cash registers don’t contain them, the ATM’s don’t dispense them. I don’t see the new bills until I visit my parents on holidays, and they live in a small town.

    Things are funny that way.
