Our money looks so bad. The newest iteration of our Benjamin proves it. I realize that security is a number one priority for our government. It should be. But who says that security and aesthetics have to be mutually exclusive? Michael Tyznik took it upon himself to redesign our currency with both those things in mind. As I’m not a big fan of typing and would much rather have someone do the work for me, he explains his design here. If you notice, Michael didn’t design a one dollar bill. He proposed getting rid of it and moving towards one and two dollar coins instead. The vending machine lobbyists would be furious.
I absolutely love this redesign. It’s thoughtful, considerate to America’s currency’s past, takes into account security and new features, and looks wonderful. It would even make those rumpled up coke/stripper dollars in your pocket look good.
