I wish we were more like Europe when it comes to currency. Euro bills come in
all sizes and colors, and you can spot the denomination from far away. So if
you see paper money on the ground, you can tell right away whether it's
worth stooping over to pick up.And many European ATMs dispense cash
in a mixture or large and small denominations. That is so civilized. Not sure
how it is in Utah, but some ATMs in California dispense $50 bills now instead of
$20s. But the new $100s are nice. Long may they circulate.
I think we should put President Obama on the $5,000 bill. After all, the
inflation caused by his loose monetary policy will be the reason we will need
those bills anyway.
Does it have "In God We Trust" on the other side?
Until the Fed withdraws the current $100 bill from circulation, this is just
extra printing expense. As long as the old, easily counterfeited bill is
accepted, we will continue to have problems with counterfeit $100 bills. Rouge
states like North Korea are the worst offenders, because they have both the
printing capability and the need for massive amounts of hard currency.
I love the way it looks, can't wait to inspect it up close!
