Today, $1 Federal Reserve Notes represent nearly half of all Federal Reserve Notes produced, with estimates as of 2009 putting the $1 bill at 42% of all US paper notes issued. Estimates from 2019 put the total number of $1 bills in circulation around the world at 12.7 billion notes.
The obverse side of $1 Colorized Legal Tender Notes features the now-famous portrait of President George Washington. Portraits similar to this have appeared on large-sized United States Notes, large-sized Silver Certificates, and small-sized versions of the Silver Certificate and modern Federal Reserve Notes. President Washington’s portrait has classic additions of white and black to his overcoat and shirt, with white hair on his head and an average complexion. The porthole element around his portrait has green in the ornate elements with gold on the “One Dollar” notation.
On the reverse face of $1 Colorized Legal Tender Notes is an image of the all-seeing eye and the seal of the United States of America. The seal is enhanced with red, white, and blue on the US national shield, green on the olive branch, and the traditional brown-and-white feathers of the bald eagle’s plumage. Gold colorizations are added to the central design piece and the face value below the design.
