U.S. - Dollar

1 dollar is divided into 100 cents

There's also a bill in denominations of $ 500, $ 1000, $ 5000, $ 10 000 and $ 100 000. At the moment, out of all of the issued banknotes 10 thousand dollars, which tracks the number of the Fed and the latest edition of which was in 1944, commonly located only 130 pieces, this is why inadequately mentioned.

Denominations of 500, 1000, 5000, 10 000 and $ 100 000 were printed earlier. They are used only for interbank settlements and between gangs. However, in 1936 they simply ceased to publish, and completely withdrawn from public circulation, on the orders of the president.

Banknote denomination $ 100 000 was released in 1934, and of course never became public, was only used for settlement between the government financial institutions. But now the biggest denomination, which is is $ 100. Bill the same face value of $ 500, $ 1,000, $ 5,000 and $ 10,000 were produced until 1946, and since 1967 has officially been withdrawn from service.

Every day in the United States produced about 35 million notes. In 2005, the cost of manufacturing the same bill was about 5.7 cents.

The basic design of most bills was approved it in 1982, but all of the banknote statesmen of the country's first president, the country's George Washington (born George Washington) depicted on the banknote in denominations of $ 1,

third president Thomas Jefferson (born Thomas Jefferson) - the bill to $ 2

The 16th U.S. president, the winner in the war of North and South, Abraham Lincoln (born Abraham Lincoln) - on a $ 5 bill, Alexander Hamilton (born Alexander Hamilton) - at a $ 10 bill, Andrew Jackson (born Andrew Jackson) - the bill at $ 20, Benjamin Franklin (born Benjamin Franklin) - the bill of $ 100. William McKinley (born William McKinley) - at a $ 500 bill, Grover Cleveland (born Grover Cleveland) - the bill of $ 1,000.

It should also be noted that Chase was right in the first place on the bill the words "In God we trust." Previously, the inscription was written only on the coins, but it appeared to kupbrah only in 1957, and since 1963 in constant use. Just wanted to note that the first $ 1 banknote, released in 1863, contained no image of George Washington, and a portrait of Salmon Chase.

Above the eagle's head is placed a ribbon with an inscription in Latin (as of 13 characters) E Pluribus Unum - «Unity in Diversity."

To the left of the eagle painted pyramid, which consists of thirteen steps on the pyramid stands at the foot figure in 1776 (founded in the United States, indicated by Roman numerals).

Above the pyramid is the Latin inscription, which consists of thirteen letters, «Annuit Coeptis», which means "He approves our actions" under the pyramid is another interesting inscription which translates as "New Order of the Ages", all these labels represent the beginning of a new era, an era of American life.

All symbols and slogans are referred to in the bill, consisting of thirteen characters, that is, everything is a symbol of the American colonies.

But it is worth noting that it was unclear why the same dollar turns green, that is why the color of all denominations is almost identical. In 1869 a treaty was signed with the U.S. Treasury and by the Philadelphia Messers J. M. & Cox for the production of paper money with the special water marks in the form of subtle vertical stripes.

It should also be pointed out that in the past few years, dollar bills purchased not only green but also yellow and pink.
