Concept Dollar Bills

A US Dollar Concept Shows How Amazing a Revamp Would Look for the US Dollar

— June 9, 2018 — Art & Design
A new US dollar concept may finally replace the currency with a modern design that tackles issues with counterfeiting and bill destruction. Designed by Andrey Avgust, this concept features a bold design that modernizes every bill in circulation. The US dollar concept replaces the traditional material with multiple layers of transparent polymer and updates the images to play off the translucent material.

Not only does the US dollar concept revamp the design of the currency, but it also adds extra layers of security. A unique PGP encrypted QR code will be included on every bill making counterfeiting nearly impossible. The polymer construction is also much harder to mimic effectively, as well as being incredibly hard to tear or break.
