  1. The ‘Braille’ on the bills is incorrect; $10, $20, and $100 all use the same arrangement of dots, and on the $20 and $100 they’re even in the same position on the bill.

  2. This is a very interesting take on the US paper money… with strong echoes, it seems to me, of the new UK coinage, where the coins come together to make a single image. Very clever, beautiful in an unusual and creative way, and you’ll satisfy a ton of people with the $1, anachronism though it is. I would like to see your ideas for the back… and more globally, I would like to see this remarkable idea of a true redesign of US money come to something more than an exercise. Living in Canada, where our money has gone through a number of changes in the 30+ years that I’ve lived here, and having spent time with the euro and the Australian dollar, this seems really, really overdue.

  3. Extremely well designed notes. Any new money absolutely must be machine readable – the bar code is probably the best way to achieve that.

  4. I think this is a thoughtful, modern take on our outdated currency. It’s not quite there yet but it’s an excellent start! The barcode is very likely a must in a redesign. With the right security features this has some serious potential :)

  5. Agree that with some more work, it could actually fly. I can just see it: "I’d like 186 dollars in a hundred, a fifty, a twenty, a ten, and a five."
