The Unfinished Pyramid

Okay, yesterday was dollar bill number uno. Now here is another interesting fact of the dollar bill, on the back of the dollar bill you will notice the unfinished pyramid as well as the eagle clutching the olive branches and arrows. Everything about this is a symbolism.

Let's start with the pyramid. During the time of the Egyptians the pyramids depicted enlightenment, the unfinished pyramid, if you notice above it has the 'All Seeing Eye' or the eye of Ra, the sun god of the Egyptians. Going on the pyramid itself holds thirteen stacks of bricks. At the base of it is the Roman numerals of 1776. The date of the declaration of independence (also on the Statue of Liberty). The final words here are the Latin words above and below the pyramid. The one above the pyramid is stated as "God has favored our undertaking." The bottom one is "a new order has begun."

So there is your new fact of the day. Tomorrow we will learn a bit more about the little dollar in your wallet.
