One of the most important things about America is our Bill of Rights. It is possibly the most important information any citizen can have. The design of our money currently contains semi-religious (the eye in the pyramid) and overtly religious (“In God We Trust”) symbols and text that go against the incredibly important separation of church and state implicate in the first amendment. In my redesign, these are replaced with the text of the Bill of Rights. It has been proposed that these ten amendments are in order of importance, so it is fitting that the most important rights are included on the most common banknotes.

I love this idea so much.  How many people do you think are out there in the US that have no clue about this “bill of rights” that we all live by?

  1. I like this idea. Beats the hell out of religious stuff. Although I like the pyramid/ eye and important monuments too. The only thing is, why does it have to look like a Euro? That format is quite a boring design compared to the present bill. Some quotes from the Declaration of Independence would be cool too. I always have liked the preamble, tells everything our country should try to be: We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness…

    1. Ditto, but I don’t really ike money that has too much color. Money doesn’t need to be pretty, just difficult for casemeth to copy.
      I’ not sure how important ‘hard copy’ money will be in 20 years or so. We may not even be using it anymore. I keep a $20 in my wallet and I think it’s been there for months.
