Short Dollar History

 

The United States dollar history is over 200 years. The design we know today was approved in 1928. The worddollarstands fordaler”. It was an abbreviation for Joachimsdaler, a coin that came from Joachim’s Valley (Bohamia). “Dalers” became popular in England at the times of King George III. Each “daler” was about 1/8 of English pound, thus it was called “piece of eight”. This long name soon transformed into a famous $ sign.

Of course, this text is difficult to read as other coat elements are rather contrasting.

Most note elements have a thick layer of paints that is why they are well perceived by touch.

You might wonder why dollar became green. The reason for this is very simple. Notes of old standard were easy to copy using a photo camera (they were printed in black and had a green color on the sides). Recently dollars have got new color tints of yellow and pink.
