new 5 dollar bill

march 13 2008

The people in the USA can enjoy a new 5 dollar bill.

A large, purple numeral "5" is featured on the back of the note's lower right.
With 3 other, old fashioned, 5's, people can't make a mistake anymore.

The bill also features 2 new watermarks, which can be seen when the bill is held against the light.

Tourists will love the new bill, because the 5 is clearly seen.

I haven't heard of any braille points or other marks for the blinds.

Do USA bills have those features?

  1. Our coins are different sizes so they are fairly easy to tell apart. Unfortantely though, paper money essentially is the same to a blind person. They manage-but now that your brought it up it seems extremely unfair to them.


Thank you for your comment.
