Back in June 2010, I was curious if Benjamin Franklin was the only non-US President to be on our paper currency. So I used Wikipedia to write this blog post.
That post was popular then and is still read by thousands of people each month even today. It was so popular that I followed it up with a similar post about faces on coins:
That too is a popular piece.
So with all the recent discussion about faces on coins and currency, I thought I'd reshare those posts. Even today, I still hear people say that only the faces of presidents are on our money.
Facial recognition is alive in the lab.
