In the first episode glimpses of money did not look like our bills, and I wondered if it was Canadian, but the show is set in Washington DC. In episode 4 was a better view (Valorum posted a screen grab in an Answer), and I could see that someone imagined a future evolved design for what bills (Treasury Notes) would look like.

Does anyone have a pointer to details concerning this design? I mean, was there a behind the scenes article or bonus content that describes how the design was created and the artist's thoughts behind it?

  • Thanks, @Richard. I don't have a timestamp and I didn't save the episode. There is a clear view when a bag of money is dumped out, but not quite enough to read it in detail. I thought one large word was cursive "Australia" but that doesn't make sense. I did not find anything relevant with Google. – JDługosz Oct 13 '15 at 18:11
  • I felt that my answer was pretty comprehensive. Is there anything else you'd like to see me address before considering an acceptance? – Valorum Jul 1 '16 at 22:07
  • If you want it, you can buy it online here; ebay.ca/itm/… – Valorum Jul 1 '16 at 23:44

The future currency is an original prop and features Obama on the $500 bill

Mixed in with the fake notes are some real Australian currency, including a real A$100 bill featuring Dame Nellie Melba.

  • I guess posts are appearing after I searched for it, inspired by the same scene. That blog post said "the lasy is Australian" but I think that's just someone else in my position looking at the frame; not any information from the artist etc. – JDługosz Oct 13 '15 at 18:34
  • Looks like a woman on the $100 bill too. – Xantec Oct 13 '15 at 19:00
  • @Xantec - Yep. 'Tis – Valorum Oct 13 '15 at 19:05
