National Dollar Day - 2021-08-08
What is National Dollar Day?
On August 8th, the U.S. will celebrate the anniversary of the National Dollar Day. This holiday commemorates the day Congress established the U.S. monetary system in 1786. In 1862, the United States printed its first dollar bill. But it wasn’t George Washington. The first dollar bill featured Salmon P. Chase, President Lincoln’s Secretary of Treasury. The $1 is the oldest design in America. Its design has not changed in nearly 50 years. The $5, $10, $20, and $50 have all been redesigned in recent years, but the single remains unchanged. Counterfeiting is a problem, but the $1 doesn’t need redesigning because it isn’t as significant as the larger bills. It’s on the right of the number 1, on the front of the bill, above the horizontal line. It’s tiny. It’s a bird. It’s mysterious. No one knows what kind of bird it is. It inspires conspiracy theories about what it is and where it came from.
