Ever since I was a kid there have been stories about hidden messages from the Founding Fathers embedded in the engraved images on the various denominations of our printed US currency.

Did the Founding Fathers design pictures on our money to alert us to future events? Many conspiracy theorists believe so.

Fold a bill just right and you get what might loosely depict the twin towers burning. Hidden numbers and images slipped in by a smiling engraver that only he or she knows about. Owls, aliens, snipers and other mysterious hidden pictures on our money.

These subliminal messages are much easier to find if you are positive they are there.

Money has changed a lot in recent years due to counterfeiting and money laundering.

Watermarks, micro printing, and other crime stopping methods make current bills hard to recognize as American currency. But might create interesting unintended images to appear with a closer look

Here are a few things that might make you look at our money in a whole different way.

Fun Facts About Printed Money

  • On the back of the $5, hidden in the bushes at the base of the Lincoln Memorial, is the number 172. Some think it’s an illusion created by the leaves and other see nothing at all. And if it is there no one seems to know what it means. If you do, comment below.
  • Also on the $5 bill are many state names written across the top of the Lincoln Memorial. Look for Arkansas, Michigan, Florida, Texas, Iowa, Wisconsin, California, Minnesota, Oregon, Kansas, West Virginia, Nevada, Nebraska, Colorado, North Dakota, Delaware, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Georgia, Massachusetts, Maryland, Carolina (not South or North, just Carolina), Hampshire (not new), Virginia, and New York.
  • On the front of the $5 bill in the loops on the side your magnifying glass might reveal tiny letters that read, “Five Dollars.”
  • The designer of the $100 bill put 4:10 as the time on the clock tower because he got off work at four o’clock and caught the 4:10 train and that made him happy that his day’s work was done.
  • On the back of the $1 bill are the Latin words, “NOVUS ORDO SECLORUM.” The Latin translation is “New Order for the Ages.” Many interpret this to mean, “New World Order.” A take over of the people by a ruling authority.
  • Here’s are a couple of links to what our folding money reveals.

Some Final Thoughts

The $1 dollar bill contains the most clues to a world takeover or messages that a secret group somewhere is running the show.

I’m not a conspiracy theorist but it would seem that the dollar bill would be a good way to get your message out there. Sort of like painting gang signs on a bare wall in your neighborhood.

Most people have no idea what they mean but the people they are directed to do.

Maybe it’s just a confirmation, “If you see this we are still in charge.”

Now if they would just make the dollar worth a little more we’d all be happy.
