When a five can become a ten!

Uniform Money, USA

I was just reading through the news and articles that change American history in some form always catch my attention.  This article is worth a mention on America’s Castles as it will eventually change a long time tradition of what we perceive of America Currency.  I am not speaking of the little bit of color they added to it or it quick decline on the world market.  What I am speaking of is a story that goes back to my child hood. The shape of money.

I recall when I was a child seeing a blind man (i was 9 years old), attempting to count money at a convenience story.  He handed a clerk a 10 thinking it was a five and informed the clerk it was a five.  The clerk began to count the money back as a five and then looked down and advised the guy it was a ten and gave him another five in change.  Thankfully an honest clerk intervened but this left a very marked impression on me at such the age of 9.  It showed me at a young age people with sight problems could have difficulty with money.

I went through most of my life wondering why money had to be the same shape.  As I began traveling I realized currency in different parts of the world was different; bright colors, different shapes, different texture, raised letters. This brought me back to the question of those who had difficulty with money, why could we not have this.

After a recent court ruling, American money might not only have color but also have different shape.  (different sizes for each amount)

So when you see new money in a couple of years, just remember you are part of America history in the making.
