Dollar Notes: you need them to buy lunch at the camp.
You need them to buy gum at the pharmacy.
You ask your parents to buy the coolest new games and toys.
But when was the last time you really looked at money and noticed all the little marks that made it a real American bill?
In the engraving and printing bureau of making bills, hundreds of workers watch the money all day, making sure that each bill is made the way it should be.
Bureau of Engraving and Printing (or BEP)
Celebrate 150 anniversary in Washington.
For the first time in 1861, the federal or national government took over the process of printing money.
Prior to this, private banks issued funds after obtaining permission.
Both the north and the South are fighting civil war, President Abraham Lincoln needs to make money (literally)
The fees paid to Union soldiers were quick.
In 1862, an engineer named Spencer Clark invented a machine that took out the huge paper that printed many bills and automatically reduced it to a certain size.
Clark and five workers started using the machine in August 29, 1862, and the Bureau of Engraving and Printing was born.
Today, the bureau is located on 14 and C streets southwest of Washington.
The only place to print the American flagS.
Bill is in Fort Worth, Texas, where BEP staff have been making money since 1990. (
Coins, such as coins and coins, are made in Pennsylvania and Colorado. )
Turn a page and learn how to make money.
BEP it takes almost a week to turn a blank sheet 26 inch wide and 23 inch high
About the size of a two-page newspaper. into 32 bills.
Money is earned in three steps.
The first and latest step is called offset;
First use in 2003.
It gives uniform color to all bills worth $5 or more.
Large sheets of paper through a machine larger than your bedroom (The sound is bigger! ).
The machine adds colored strips on the front and back of the paper: Green, peach and blue, one for every $20, and purple and gray for every $5.
This subtle or inconspicuous color makes it difficult for anyone to make counterfeit or counterfeit coins.
There are three people working on this machine.
Typically, a worker pulls out a sheet from the completed pile to make sure the color is perfect.
If not, he will pull one or two more from the pile.
If their color is wrong, the workers will stop the machine, throw away the bad sheets and find out what\'s wrong with the color. Grab a bill.
Put your finger on it.
It feels different from ordinary paper, right?
This feeling or texture is the second step in making money, called a concave version. (Sounds like in-ta-lee-o.
The meaning of lettering is Italian. )
Another machine makes a loud sound like a heartbeat, putting a special type of ink on a large metal plate engraved with everything that makes the bill look like money, including photos and figures of the president.
Then wipe the plate clean so the ink is left in the groove of the plate only.
Pressure of 50 tons (
About the weight of 25 small trucks)
Press the plate and paper together.
This transfers the carved image to the paper and gives the bill a texture that you can feel.
In the third step, in a quiet room, the symbols of the Treasury and the Federal Reserve were added.
Serial numbers and markers have also been added to indicate which area of the country the act will travel.
A machine then cuts the paper into separate bills and counts it.
The machine will also check again to ensure the color is perfect.
If something goes wrong with the bill, a worker takes it out of the stack, destroys it, and replaces it with stars after the serial number.
Look at your bill: if there are stars behind the serial number, you will know that there is a problem with the original bill. (
No, the worker can\'t take the damaged money home! )
The money was wrapped in plastic and shipped to one of 12 locations in the United States.
From there, the bill is sent to a smaller bank where your parents may get their money.
Earlier this year, the Federal Reserve, as the national banking system, told the FBI how much money it was going to make and broke it down by each type of bill.
At 2012, the bureau will make about 8.
4 billion bills worth about $400 billion.
Think about the dollars that started out as just a blank sheet of paper that might buy you lunch this fall, or even a cool new game, which is cool.
