Two For One : Micah Perez : Dollar ReDe$ign 2010


“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.”

  1. I really like the design for the Amero, but just one quibble: The languages. First, you left off French! This would run afoul of Canada’s official bilingualism by ignoring the francophone communities. Second, it’s very English-heavy, rather than balanced with the Spanish. Perhaps following the Euro’s example and using as little text as possible (eg. CBNA/BCNA, which would cover all three languages)On a side note, these are so good that they are bound to make it to one of those crazy conspiracy sites who are *convinced* that the North American Union is impending. . .

  2. There are red Macaws and Jaguars in southern mexico, and I did not want to put just animals that are found in USA (what about canada and mexico?).You were right about the french, the problem is that I have no knowledge of french and I was in a little bit of a hurry to get these notes on…so bear with me.

  3. I think that my notes are the only Treasury demand notes as opposed to federal reserve system notes, if you are going to redesign the dollar, you may as well attepmt to fix the system too…Right?

  4. Love the Amero bills, except that you included Greenland in the image. While Greenland is indeed part of North America, it’s never typically included in NAU conspiracy lore. Also, your bills clearly state that it would only be valid in the US, Canada and Mexico. So why include Greenland? Fix that and bring the color of the 50 Amero bill to blend in more with the rest and it would be absolutely perfect.
