How American Bills Are Branded

The first generations of currency in the U.S. did not display the faces of presidents. However, in modern day times, having portraits of leaders on currency is common practice. It’s interesting to note that by law, dollar bills can only be branded with portraits of deceased individuals in the United States. This law took effect in 1886, prohibiting living persons from appearing on postal currency, bonds, securities, or branded monetary notes/bills.

Branded Bills and Hats

When the government began issuing paper currency, it was decided the style, design, and layout would be in green.

The current national debt is over Thirty trillion dollars. It’s hard to imagine that amount of money. Here’s a fun fact to put that into perspective. You can buy an island for one-hundred million US dollars. That amount of money could be three-hundred thousand private islands. You could easily afford to purchase your own private airplane. You could purchase a midnight express boat in every color. Heck, if you really wanted to, you could buy your own Train. The richest man on earth, Elon Musk is worth approximately two hundred billion. Which pales in comparison to what America’s debt is currently.
