American bills with colour?

Recommended Posts

yup... the colored 20s have been around for over a year... the 10s more recently have been colored... i havent seen any colored 5s yet tho... im pretty sure they did it for the same reason other countries do... easier to distinguish from each other... or they just wante to be cool like monopoly... haha

I know they serve their purpose but I mind of miss the all-green bills. At least they still have the "money" smell. The government should patent that. I have "paper" currency from other countries and they do not smell the same.

I remember when American money used to be green. Now it's pink and orange and purple.

My God, they're printing Monopoly money!

Once we get used to them I think people will like them fine. It's just the first time

you see one that it seems shockingly different. They are much more counter-fit

discouraging. I love European money and stamps... they make ours look plain

and unartistic.

Any idea when the $1 bill will get a redesign?

From what I remember back when they first redesigned the $20 in the late 90s, they're not bothering with the $1 because it's pretty fruitless to counterfeit it.

With all the costs associated with replacing paper money, Canada realized that it didn't make sense, back in the early 90's, to print $1 bills anymore. I bet the US will soon do the same. Don't you guys already have a $1 coin anyways? I remember there being a big stink that it didn't have Washington on it.

Interesting..first I've heard of this. I like how other currencies use color.. esp. how Euros are different sizes and different colors for each denomination.

The last Treasury department press release I found that mentioned it said that the $1 and $2 bills wont be redesigned. That doesn't mean ever, but I take it to mean no time soon. I doubt the $1 bill will change much in the next decade. The other bills have been redesigned once, the $50, $20 and $10 twice, those are the ones that they have to worry about being counterfitted. Besides, if they keep the $1 as-is, it'll be uniques in that its green, like how the $50, $20 and $10 all have their own colors.

Are the $2 still being printed? I haven't seen one in circulation in a looooong time.. I'd like to see them get rid of the $1 and $2 bills and replace them with coins.

Disagree. Make more $2 notes due to inflation and have a dual coin/note $1. Problem with coins is they are noisy. And heavier. Bills are silent.

I agree Croc. It's just that at a certain point a dollar is worth so little that making the paper money doesn't make sense anymore. I wish Canada had stopped at the loonie ($1 coin) and left the $2 bill alone. Our smallest bill in Canada is $5.

Really? When I was in Canada a few weeks ago I got a few one dollar bills at one of the bars we went to....as for the US $1....i doubt they will be replacing it any time soon....if they do replace it they are going to have to replace EVERY bill reader in every vending machine in America....kind of a big deal. There are still some coin machines at car washes around here that don't take the last $5 redo.

Ummm... what the???

How dead was this bar you went to???

They introduced our $1 coin in 1989 and phased out the $1 bill immediately afterwards - meaning the bank will accept them but not give them out. So if you were given a Canadian $1 bill, the bar has had it in the till for roughly 15 years.

Hey Yellow Dart,

Back when I was a bartender, this would happen often! Our clientele was mostly Americans, and some of them dug $1 bills out of who knows where. However, when a customer would pay with a $1 bill, I would give it back for change as fast as possible - the reason being that modern cashdrawers now have 1 less slot for the bills. Less confusion = less mistakes = less money out of my pocket at end of shift.

Anyway, just a theory based on my reality.......

The sacagawea dollar coin never really caught on, and nobody really uses it anymore. I haven't seen any since about 2002, so I assume they stopped minting them.
