*** Still on the right side , the Eagle holds 13 arrows and an olive branch with 13 leaves, each representing one of the original Colonies.
*** On the left side of the bill, you will see a Pyramid with an Eye, the All Seeing Eye, is an ancient symbol of divinity -- not a shout out to Freemasons, as conspiracy buts believes.
*** Still on the left side of the bill, the Top of the Pyramid is uncapped, signifying our (USA) growth was not complete.
*** Still on the left side of the bill, the Western side of the Pyramid is dark in color, as we (USA) had'nt yet fully explored the American West.
*** Still on the Pyramid side of the bill, the is a Latin word inscripted that says,"Annuit Coeptis", meaning He (God) has favored our (USA) undertakings.
