“The basic idea behind my currency is a voyage through American history, beginning with its colonial roots illustrated in the one Dollar bill, continuing with the revolutionary war when we became the nation we are now on the five Dollar bill, on the twenty I placed Abraham Lincoln in front of the emancipation proclamation as yet another milestone in American history, and lastly on the one hundred Dollar bill I placed the Statue of Liberty on the front and Ellis Island on the back to symbolize the influx of immigration experienced in the 1900’s and serves as a link between pilgrim and modern immigration making the bills and history a type of cycle. I decided to use different colors for each bill to make them easily distinguishable.”Yenny Rua is a high school junior at Metropolitan Business Academy, CT. © Copyright 2011 The ‘Author’.
