“The overarching concept is to capture various forms/ideas of ‘liberty’ [20] Liberty Enlightening the World (aka Statue of Liberty): Iconic as a symbol, it provides liberty and light to all people of our nation. The sonnet by Emma Lazarus (“Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free”) is juxtaposed over Lady Liberty. [50] Abraham Lincoln: Considered one of the greatest presidents in U.S. history, Lincoln declares liberty to all slaves. The Emancipation Proclamation is shown. [100] Washington Crossing the Delaware: George Washington was a commander during the American Revolutionary War and often referred to as the father of his country. The crossing of the Delaware River was pivotal in defining liberty and our identity as a free nation. Additional Details: Lower Left: Holographic stripes emulating the American flag. Diagonal Band: 13 stars for the 13 original colonies.”

  1. Beautiful, even more so because it could actually be adopted — I could actually see this idea getting through Congress and being broadly embraced.

  2. I love the overall design, one of my favorites. However one of the main reasons for people wanting to change the dollar was because of the color. All 3 of the designs are green, with the little change of the lines under the number on the left. If you were to leave those lines the same and change the color of the two boxes on the right for each different denominations, it would make each bill more unique and exciting and will make it easier to look at and easier to tell the difference. But nonetheless it is a great design.
