Bank note 1775. Note the refence to Spanish money. Spanish coins were in wide circulation in the colonies at the time of the revolution.
It was none other than Benjamin Franklin who created the bank note designs for the 1775 issue of the United Colonies. Franklin shows a bloody hand impaled upon a torn bush on his 5 dollar bill. He explained that the hand represented Britain and the bush the American colonies. The Latin motto, when translated, reads: “Put up with me or leave me alone”
