 Post subject: New $5.00 Bill
PostPosted: Thu Mar 13, '08, 11:51 pm 
The new $5.00 bill is now out, although don't throw your old ones away cause they are still good too. :wink:

I don't know about this "new" money. The old stuff seemed just fine to me.

What do you think? Old or New money - which do you like best?

I heard they wanna get rid of president coins and replace them with new, more valuable coins. Its all pointless in my opinion.

Most of the new bills have more anti-counterfeiting measures introduced, which is a good thing. I don't see much of a need to change the visual designs, though. Everyone knows what the old bills looks like, so it would be easier to stay with that, I'd think.

The coins... well, I'm surprised they haven't changed more already. I think this year is the last year for the state quarters, so a new quarter design will probably appear next year.

Here's a link I forgot to put in up above that may explain a little more:

That big purple 5 on the back looks ridiculous.

The new Five almost looks...gaudy. I do understand the need to prevent counterfeiting, but still, I miss the old money. :cry:

If the bill itself was more pink, it'd match the pink $5 bill in Monopoly money! :D

Now that I've seen it, I have to agree. The purple 5 really looks out of place and gaudy. They could have at least used the same font style the three other fives have.

I don't like the way the new bill looks. It's gawd awful looking. As long as it spends the same, I don't really care how it looks.
