We all probably had a view of the dollar bill every day. And the weird symbols that are present on the dollar represent strength and duration. The pyramid specifies that the country hasn’t finished yet. Likewise, when we look to the western face of it we see a shadow in which the front is lighted.
The three committees- Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson and John Adams, gathered to discuss the pyramid and they did, but an eye image of $1 bill makes it most iconic symbol to be discussed controversially. The design is full of symbolism while we go through the look to the $1 bill. But what are the different symbols noted on both the front and back of the dollar bill? Let’s find out.
The Front View of the Dollar
- It all starts with the first attractive thing printed is the portrait of Washington’s, that is prominent with the federal reserve district seal. There is a lot of stuff that makes it interesting. Position, letter, number and the U.S treasury seal. When we look towards the $1, we recognise that today every $1 bill has a Federal Reserve district seal. It is nothing but a one or two-digit number printed in the corner of the bill four different times. New York is the second Federal Reserve district which is designated by the letter B.
- Different numbers and position letter etched on it denotes the actual engraving plate and its position on that plate. Different plates are used to make the surface of both the front and back of the dollar.
- Every dollar has a different serial number. It is said that the first letter of the serial number must match the letter in the Federal Reserve District seal. In Bill series, we see that $1 is present between the picture of Washington and the signature of the current Treasury secretary. In the last, the U.S treasury seal is depicted in front district bill.
The Back View of the Dollar
- Symbols describe a lot that is present on the back of the dollar. They include both sides of the Great seal of the US, as well as the bills, plate serial number.
- The serial number idea notifies the actual engraving plate of this side of the note was printed on both Front and Backside of the bill to have a different serial number since they are printed with different plates. The Great Seal of the USA, as featured on the $1 bill is credited to Charles Thomas, a man who was a leading merchant in Philadelphia secretary of the continental congress at the time.
- Its design includes a lot of symbols such as an American eagle, a shield on its breasts as a central figure, an olive branch on the eagle’s right talon and bundles of arrows on the left talon. The eagle is clutching a white scroll in it. Just above the eagle is a crest that constitutes a constellation of 13 stars. The olive branch denotes the power of peace and war. The reverse of the seal which is made of 13 rows, features an unfinished pyramid. In the first row, there are 1776 Roman numerical. The pyramid is the inspiration that radiates outward through eye and rays.
