U. S. Presidents Series Banknotes

By Nutmegcollector

In this presidential election year, much speculation has been on who will be the next president of the United States. Now the choice is narrowed down to Barack Obama or John McCain.

My latest novelty banknote project was this Presidents of the United States series.

This series of $1 notes features all the Presidents of the United States from George Washington to George W. Bush. However, only five more recent Presidents are shown below.

The portraits were adapted from the original paintings by Chas Fagan for
C-SPAN's 20th Anniversary Television Series, American Presidents: Life
Portraits March-December 1999.

The seal of the President of the Unites States is shown on the left side of
the portrait.

The serial number is composed of the president's initials, the year of
birth followed by the year of death.

The name of the president and the numerical sequence in office are shown at
bottom left.

The name of the Secretary of the Treasury serving under the president is
shown at bottom right.

All the notes have the same design on the back.

Jimmy Carter (1924-)
39th President, 1977-1981

Ronald Reagan (1911-2004)
40th President, 1981-1989

George H. W. Bush (1924-)
41th President, 1989-1993
