I rarely carry cash anymore, most transaction is handled with my friend Mastercard, but I’ve always been interested in the design and look of money. It says something about the country you’re visiting. What governments choose to put on notes says a lot about values, traditions and history of that country.
We’re getting new notes and coins in Sweden soon and the other week “they” announced the design of the notes along with people who will be featuring the new notes! One thing is clear, none of the faces below will be featuring the new notes, and I doubt the States ever will adopt any of the faces below either for their dollar notes, but they’re fun!
The artists behind the dollar bills are Akira Beard and James Charles, they produced a number of dollar bills as part of their project American Iconomics.
