U.S. $20 Bill Redesign Announced



What do you think?

Get used to a lot of changes. The current Treasury plan is to update the bills around every 6-7 years to avoid counterfeiting. Honestly, I don't think it's a bad idea.

arent they supposed to be changing the color of the money. They had a report here the other day about it. They are going to be like CDN money. Colored bills are harder to counterfiet.

I fucking hate it.

One of the only pride-based feelings I had for this country was that their money looked cool and had no color, graphics, or stupid pictures on it.

Now it has all of that.


Time to exile myself to Jamaica mon...

I remember when the $50 / $20 / $10 / $5 changed while working at a bank. You always had scattered people bitching, because they didn't like change. "Monopoly money." All I have to say to that is, who cares? It's paper that you use to buy things, not hang up on your wall to display the world's most boring currency.

I always thought the Swiss franc was cool. The newest Canadian redesign looks cool too.

that groovy lettering in the background on the right looks ridiculous.
