The Dollar Should Be Examined On A Regular Basis!
Stop the presses
Here are some interesting facts about our nation's history and the United States One Dollar Bill. After reading this one ought to know where our Founding Father's wanted us to go and it sure was NO away from God!
Take out a one dollar bill and look at it. The one dollar bill you're looking at first came off the presses in 1957 in its present design. This so-called paper money is in fact a cotton and linen blend, with red and blue minute silk fibers running through it. It is actually material. We've all washed it without it falling apart. A special blend of ink is used, the contents we will never know. It is overprinted with symbols and then it is starched to make it water resistant and pressed to give it that nice crisp look.
Carefully Examine The Front Side First
The portrait of George Washington is displayed in the center of the obverse of the one-dollar bill, as it has been since the 1869 design.
To the left of George Washington is the Federal Reserve District Seal. The name of the Federal Reserve Bank that issued the note encircles a capital letter, (A-L), identifying it among the twelve Federal Reserve Banks. The sequential number of the bank, (1: A, 2: B, etc), is also displayed in the four corners of the open space on the bill.
To the right of George Washington is the The Treasury Department Seal. The balancing scales represent justice. The chevron with thirteen stars represents the original thirteen colonies. The key below the chevron represents authority and trust; 1789 is the year that the Department of the Treasury was established. Below the FRD seal (to the left of George Washington) is the signature of the Treasurer of the U.S., which occasionally varies, and below the USDT Seal (right side) is the Secretary of the Treasurers signature. To the left of the Secretary's signature is the series/year it was printed in.
On the edges are olive branches entwined around the 1s
States Treasury Seal
If you look on the front of the bill, you will see the United States Treasury Seal.
On the top you will see the scales for the balance - a balanced budget.
In the center you have a carpenter's T-square, tool used for an even cut (Not to mention the Masonic emblems, such as the all-seeing eye!).
Underneath is the Key to the United States Treasury.
That's all pretty easy to figure out, but what is on the back of that dollar bill is something we should all know.
Now, the Back of the US One Dollar Bill
The reverse of the one-dollar bill has an ornate design which incorporates the Great Seal of the United States, and it is of noted interest to historians and numerologists for the symbols contained therein.
To the left is the reverse of the seal which portrays an unfinished pyramid. The separated cap of the pyramid, portraying the all-seeing eye, symbolizes that the United States is still far from finished. The shadow cast by the pyramid from the rising sun represents the undiscovered lands to the west. The sun, which is rising, represents that a new nation has begun. The Latin phrase Annuit Cptis is located above the pyramid. Taken from the Latin words annuere (to nod, approve) and coepere (to begin, undertake), it literally means "he/it favors the things having been begun." The official translation given by the U.S. State Department, the U.S. Mint, and the U.S. Treasury is "He (God) has favored our undertakings."
Novus Ordo Seclorum is shown on a ribbon below the pyramid and is a phrase taken from the fourth Ecologue of Virgil. In English, the Latin seclorum is the genitive plural form of the word saeculum, meaning "generation, century, or age." Thus the motto can be translated as "a new order of the ages". Written at the base of the pyramid in Roman Numerals is MDCCLXXVI or 1776, the year the United States Declaration of Independence was signed.
The eye above the pyramid is popular among conspiracy theorists, and alleged to have connections with the Illuminati secret society. There have also been associations made from the pyramid to the Illuminati because it has thirteen steps. The eagle on the one-dollar-bill is also carrying thirteen arrows and thirteen leaves. Furthermore, if a star of David is made on the pyramid the letters at its points will spell out the word "Mason" in a perceived reference to the group of Free Masonry.
To the right is the obverse of the Great Seal portraying a heraldic Bald Eagle. In front of the eagle is an unsupported shield which symbolizes the fledgling country's ability to stand on its own, unified by congress; this is symbolized by the bar on top of the shield. Above the eagle's head is a glory with 13 stars. Clutched in the eagle's beak is a ribbon which reads "E PLURIBUS UNUM" (From many, one). It also holds an olive branch (which the head always points towards) in its right claw and arrows in its left, symbolizing the desire of peace, but the readiness to fight.
The number thirteen, symbolizing the 13 original colonies, shows up 13 times!
The Great Seal
You will see two circles. Both circles, together, comprise the Great Seal of the United States. The First Continental Congress requested that Benjamin Franklin and a group of men come up with a Seal. It took them four years to accomplish this task and another two years to get it approved.
The Unfinished Work Of The USA
If you look at the left hand circle, you will see a Pyramid. Notice the face is lighted and the western side is dark.
This country was just beginning. We had not begun to explore the West or decided what we could do for Western Civilization.
The Pyramid is un-capped, again signifying that we were not even close to being finished. Inside the capstone you have the all-seeing eye, and ancient symbol for divinity.
It was Franklin's belief that one man couldn't do it alone, but a group of men, with the help of God, could do anything.
In God We Trust (Annuit Coeptis)
"IN GOD WE TRUST" is on this currency. The Latin above the pyramid, ANNUIT COEPTIS, means "God has favored our undertaking." In God We Trust is the official national motto of the United States and the U.S. state of Florida.
The motto first appeared on a United States coin in 1864, but In God We Trust did not become the official U.S. national motto until after the passage of an Act of Congress in 1956.
New Order of the Ages
The Latin below the pyramid you will see the words NOVUS ORDO SECLORUM. The phrase Novus ordo seclorum (Latin for "New Order of the Ages") appears on the reverse of the Great Seal of the United States, first designed in 1782 and printed on the back of the American dollar bill since 1935. The phrase is taken from the fourth Eclogue of Virgil, which contains a passage (lines 5-8) that reads:
Now comes the final era of the Sibyl's song; the great order of the ages is born afresh. And now justice returns, honored rules return; now a new lineage is sent down from high heaven.
Remember The Year 1776
At the base of the pyramid is the Roman Numeral for 1776. Year 1776 (MDCCLXXVI) was a leap year starting on Monday
The Great Seal Of The President Of The United States
If you look at the right-hand circle, and check it carefully, you will learn that it is on every National Cemetery in the United States. It is also on the Parade of Flags Walkway at the Bushnell, Florida National Cemetery and is the centerpiece of most hero's monuments.
Slightly modified, it is the seal of the President of the United States and it is always visible whenever he speaks, yet no one knows what the symbols mean.
The Bald Eagle was selected as a symbol for victory for two reasons: first, he is not afraid of a storm; he is strong and he is smart enough to soar above it. Secondly, he wears no material crown. We had just broken from the King of England. Also, notice the shield is unsupported. This country can now stand on its own.
The Great Seal Of The Vice-President Of The United States
At the top of that shield you have a white bar signifying congress, a unifying factor. We were coming together as one nation.
In the Eagle's beak you will read, "E PLURIBUS UNUM", meaning "Out of many, one." Above the Eagle you have thirteen stars representing the thirteen original colonies, and any clouds of misunderstanding rolling away. Again, we were coming together as one. Notice what the Eagle holds in his talons. He holds an olive branch and arrows. This country wants peace, but we will never be afraid to fight to preserve peace. The Eagle always wants to face the olive branch, but in time of war, his gaze turns toward the arrows.
They say that the number 13 is an unlucky number. This is almost a worldwide belief. You will usually never see a room numbered 13, or any hotels or motels with a 13th floor. But, think about this: 13 original colonies, 13 signers of the Declaration of Independence, 13 stripes on our flag, 13 steps on the Pyramid, 13 letters in the Latin above, 13 letters in "E Pluribus Unum", 13 stars above the Eagle, 13 plumes of feathers on each span of the Eagle's wing, 13 bars on that shield, 13 leaves on the olive branch, 13 fruits, and if you look closely, 13 arrows.
