I would have a much more solid and invested opinion on who to put on Canadian money, because I'd actually end up seeing it and handling it more than a token number of times. Even so, I'd have to carefully consider that, too. But I'd be willing to give it thought and opinion.

Don’t forget to take the president poll in the other thread

I don't think any changes should be made. There are many people worth being on the money, but I'd leave it as it is.

It would be cool though, if all states printed their own interchangeable dollar coins and notes in addition to the ''federal dollar'' and gave them individual symbols or people mattering for that particular state. I like the idea of knowing from which state I have currency in my hand. 

Other than that I'd also like to see the higher denominations, which have been cancelled in 1945, coming back.

Fun fact: I got a coin from Iceland (1995) today.

Penny: Thomas Edison (if we retain it at all)

Nickel: Thomas Jefferson

Dime: FDR

Quarter: Rosa Parks

Half: Dwight D. Eisenhower

One: Sacagawea (Her coin exists, now put it on a bill) Anyhow, the one on the $1 is actually Adam Weishaupt and the Illuminati symbols is on there, so it needs to be replaced.

Two: Thomas Jefferson

Three: St. Nicholas

Five: James Madison

Ten: Theodore Roosevelt

Twenty: Frederick Douglass

Twenty-Five: Ulysses S. Grant

Fifty: Abraham Lincoln

One Hundred: Neil Armstrong

Two Hundred: Albert Einstein

Five Hundred: George Washington Carver

Speaking of Korea, this is North Korean money. Not surprising who is on it.

Michael Bloomberg is on North Korean currency? I am shocked by such an open display of respect for a renowned American capitalist!

I’d leave it as is.  I liked @ConservativeElector2’s idea of letting each state choose someone for their interchangeable dollar...but then I realized there’d be 50 different active variations of a single denomination for clerks, tellers, etc to memorize against fraud, and that’s just too much.

The Euro does it with the coins at least. It seems to work nonetheless 😛

True, though there’s less incentive to counterfeit coins.

Here in the US at least, cashiers are taught to test bills that are $20 and higher, because counterfeiting anything less than that apparently isn’t worth it.

I would probably put a different president every year on the 100. Different politician on the 50. Different non-politician non-political citizen of note on the 20. I’d put a different activist on the 10. I’d put a different cultural person (poet or artist etc) on the 5. I’d put a random living us citizen that makes middle or less income on the 1. Every year the person changes on all of these.
