Facts About The United States $1 Bill

The United States Dollar Bill

* Is NOT paper but a cotton & linen blend with red & blue silk fibers running through it, starched for water resistance & pressed to make it crisp.

 On The Front of the Bill you'll see: georgewashington.png

 * A picture of George Washington, placed on the $1 bill in 1869, replacing Salmon P. Chase, the   Secretary of the Treasury & 1st person to be pictured on the $1 bill, in 1863.
 * The green Seal of the United States Treasury.
 * The scales of balance - a balanced budget.
 * A carpenter's T-square - a tool used for an even cut.
 * A key to the United States Treasury.

On The Back of the Bill you'll see: Campbell-Great-Seal-of-the-United-States-127.jpg

* Two circles that comprise the Great Seal of the United States.
* In the left circle, a pyramid whose face is lighted but the west side is dark, signifying that the west had yet to be explored.
* The pyramid is uncapped signifying the country was not yet finished.
* Inside the pyramid capstone is the all-seeing eye, an ancient symbol for divinity.
* IN GOD WE TRUST - the belief that no one man could do it alone but a group of men, with the help of God, could do anything.

 * NOVUS ORDO SECLORUM, below the pyramid, means "a new order has begun".
 * The right circle is on every National Cemetery in the U.S. & is the centerpiece of most hero's   monuments.  Slightly modified, it is the seal of the President of the U.S., always visible   whenever he speaks.  
 * The Bald Eagle selected as a symbol for victory, unafraid of a storm & strong & smart   enough to soar above it.  He wears no material crown, signaling our break from the King of   England.

* The shield is not supported, indicating this country can now stand on its own.  A white bar rests at the top of the shield signifying Congress, a unifying factor as we were coming together as a nation.
* The ribbon in the Eagle's beak states "E pluribus unum", Latin for "one nation of many people".
* Clutched in the Eagle's talons are an olive branch & arrows, symbolizing this country's desire for peace along with its willingness to fight to preserve it.  The Eagle always faces the olive branch, but in times of war, his gaze can turn towards the arrows.

* Above the Eagle are 13 stars representing the 13 original colonies, & clouds of misunderstanding rolling away. 13.png
* 13 steps on the pyramid.
* 13 plumes of feathers on each span of the Eagle's wings.
* 13 bars on the shield.
* 13 leaves on the olive branch.
* 13 arrows.
* 13 letters in "E pluribus unum".
* 13 letters in "annuit coeptis".
* 13 signers on the Declaration of Independence.
* 13 stripes on our flag.
