“My idea is to bring the Dollar into the 21st century. The denominations are of different sizes and ideally would be made out of polymer.???I did not include the Federal Reserve system on the notes but rather I made them gold coin demand notes, meaning that they will actually be backed by gold. I think the reason why the Dollar is failing is mainly because it is simply being printed without discrection.???A return to the Gold Standard would revive our Currency. I did not make a one Dollar note but instead one Dollar gold coins with a certain amount of real gold in them would form the foundation of the currency.”
“My idea for the Amero was to create something that would rival the euro in design. I decided to adopt the Swiss method and use a vertical orientation for the currency. I depicted different types of animals on the 200, 100, 50, 20, 10 and 5 Amero notes. I did not create a one Amero note but coins would be used instead. Ideally the notes would also be made out of a polymer material.”
