U.S. Dollars are the most important currency in the world but few actually take a moment to contemplate the reasons behind the strange marks and the secrets they are hiding. Here are the hidden secrets in us dollar notes!
Lets also point out the obvious – this is the signature of the treasurer of the united states, as indicated underneath, and this is the signature of the secretary of the treasury… in case you can’t follow the pattern. This marking indicates what year that particular dollar design originated and just above it is the treasury department seal, which authenticates the note. On closer inspection you’ll notice a balance, which indicates justice, a key, which indicates trust, and an inverted v shape, known as a chevron, which has 13 starts within it. That number 13 is kindaa a recurring theme, we’ll explain it soon. On the reverse, back side of the note you will notice that it attempts to encapsulate the ideologies of the new nation that the founding fathers wanted to preserve following the declaration of independence. In the centre you’ll see the official US motto ‘in god we trust’ that was adopted in 1956. The two circles you see on either side are the two halves which make up the great seal. Why are there two halves? Let’s start with the heraldic Bald Eagle, which you’ll also notice is printed in purple on the five dollar bill. In front of the eagle is an unsupported shield which symbolizes the fledgling country’s ability to stand on its own. The eagle is biting on a ribbon which has the phrase ‘e pluribus unum’ engraved on it. That means ‘out of many – one’ in latin. Above the eagles head is a load of stars in what’s known as a ‘glory’ – a feature that’s made to look like its bursting out of a cloud, symbolising a new nation led by God. The cap, or triangle encasing the eye is separated to symbolise that the United States is still far from finished and the rising sun behind it is supposed to represent a new nation that has begun – it even leaves a shadow to the west as back then that was the direction of undiscovered lands. The motto at the top read ‘annuit coeptis’ meaning “he has favoured our undertakings” and the motto at the bottom reads “novus ordo seclorum” – thats a harry potter spell. The shield has 13 horizontal stripes and 13 vertical bars and there are 13 stars above the eagles head, each with 13 be amazed logos inside. Alight, maybe not the last one. Anyhow, the number 13 was maybe a tiiiinnny bit special to the founding fathers as it symbolises the 13 original colonies. An owl mark would symbolise the illuminati and a spider would fit with the webbed background theme. Both may seem plausible, but sadly there is an even better explanation for this. After overlaying a transposed section of the web from the bottom part of the bill, it is clear that this is just an unintentional feature.
