Holy Bible on 1754 Colonial Currency

This bill is one of 4,000 pieces of paper currency released on March 9, 1754. Authorized by the colony of North Carolina.  The bill includes the image of the Holy Bible in the form of what appears to be a woodcut.  It is estimated that less than 500 of these bills survive today.

I took this bill with me to my last presentation and was pleasantly surprised at fascinated attendees were seeing it. I also had Biblical-based coins as well ... mixed in with my usual 3D laser holograms, microscopic scripture, lenticulars, and various other "Wonders of the Bible".
