The "Psy-Ops" bill

Young Numismatists Exchange | user_8029

This bill is from the YN auction catalogue. I read the lot and decided to write an article about it. This bill is very interesting and shows an interesting part of United States history, even though it is not quite a United States bill. The premise of this bill is that the United States forces wanted the Iraqi people to read the message on one side, and what better way to do that but to make it look like money? People would pick up the bill and see the propaganda messages.

The Money of Panama

Young Numismatists Exchange | user_8029

The small Central American country of Panama is mainly known for one of its main features, the Panama Canal, which was revolutionary in transportation by ocean and cut down on travel time by tenfold. However, the thin country does have coins, like most nations, and deserves an article about them. The country of Panama has a type of currency called the Balboa, which they use when not using the United States Dollar.

The Five Dollar Bill

Young Numismatists Exchange | user_8029

The one dollar bill, as a previous post illustrated, has quite a bit of history, and the next value up, the five dollar bill, has a comparable amount. This bill has an interesting history stretching back further than the one dollar bill, and possesses many examples of bills. The five dollar bill is one of the most used bills, and following that, has a large history, even though it is not quite as often collected, due to its larger value.

The One Dollar Bill

Young Numismatists Exchange | user_8029

The one dollar bill, as the smallest denomination of paper money, is very commonly used, and unlike the smallest coin, the cent, it actually has some practical value. While the one dollar bill is a much newer invention than the coin of the same value, it still has history dating back some time. The appearance and the use of the bill has changed over time, and comes together into an interesting history.

Symbolism on the One Dollar Bill Two

Young Numismatists Exchange | user_8029

In this blog post, several things that I missed in the previous article regarding symbolism on the dollar bill will be covered. The dollar bill is probably the most used bill, and if not, it is close. However, there are many small details that are not easy to notice, and even if they are seen, the meaning can be misinterpreted. Due to this, in these blog posts, I will cover different symbols on our paper money.

Symbolism on the One Dollar Bill 1

Young Numismatists Exchange | user_8029

On coins and paper money, there is much symbolism. However, there is much more of this upon bills, as they have larger area for these symbols. The bill I will cover today will be the one dollar bill. I will probably not be able to cover all of it in one 400 word blog post, so you can possibly expect a sequel, depending on how much can fit into this post. The dollar bill has been around for a very long time, and its symbols are emblematic of the country and interesting to notice.
