Barack Obama Commemorative Banknote

By Nutmegcollector

I created this novelty banknote to commemorate an historical event that for the first time in our nation’s history, an African-American becomes the presidential nominee for a major political party. Whether he would win the election on November 4th to become the 44th President of the Unites States has yet to be seen.

Front: Portrait of Barack Obama at center, Obama campaign logo at left, “Democratic National Convention Denver, Colorado August 25-28 2008” overprints at right over the treasury seal, the serial number consisting of the two letter initials for the State of Colorado and the date for the last day of the Convention, names of both the presidential and vice presidential nominees at bottom left and right.

Back: Barack Obama addressing the crowd at Invesco Field, also known as Mile High Stadium, during the last day of the Convention
