    Does anybody know how much of my money the treasury is spending on advertising the new $20?

    Maybe I'm wrong... but,

    Does the treasury department have a budget, for say, advertising or such? Perhaps they're simply spending what they're already getting; what they have already set aside for such a purpose. If such is the case, the money would simply be spent on something similar (IE, promoting museum of coins, promoting new $1, etc lol ;)).

    Just a thought... spent most of day today going over the advertising budget at work, lol...

    Isn't it illegal to make reproductions of currency? I know that law was passed before the internet was invented by Al Gore :) but shouldn't it apply to people like CNN with digital images of the new bills?

    That makes me feel better. If it's been budgeted for something stupid it must be spent on something stupid. Even if they don't have it.

    The image is marked specimen. I would bet that it was provided by the Treasury Department.



    It sounds stupid, but I remember hearing stories when the "big head" bills came out of some places not believing they were real.


    But don't worry, they are the treasury, they are the ones who make money. ;)

    To be honest, I don't believe they've probably even spent much at all at advertising this. Everything I have heard, and seen, has come from the news on reporting it; and they do not pay the news to report it.


    All I was getting at was that the teasury department has a certain budget that is made. At some point they decided to set aside say X dollars towards advertisement. The new twenty comes along, and they decide, lets take X amount of the advertising budget to advertise the new twenty so people know about it. In this situation, I will say that it doesn't matter whether they spent the money on the $20 or not, because the money was budgetted away for advertising, whatever it might be. Not spending it on the $20 does not mean that it could then be spent on say education.

    To be upset with the above, would be to be upset with the fact that X amount was budgetted for advertising. To change this would be to change where the teasury spends money, how much they can spend, how much they get, etc...

    As long as the new bills get put into circulation, what does it matter if it goes to a bank or to pay off advertisers?
