American Money Reimagined





When traveling as an American, one of the things I’m always fascinated by (and envious of!) the complex moneys of other countries. In comparison, they’re often more artistic and daring in shape and aesthetic than the plain old US dollar. This project by Andrey Avgust explores what the future American banknote might look like.

Immediately, one notices that they have more depth and detail than current versions. More durable than paper currency, the design is made entirely of thin flexible layers of polymer. Some of its security features include unique PGP encrypted QR code and individual numbers printed by metameric inks that can be viewed under UV light. If you thought they were cool in regular light, just look at them in the dark.
