Museum of American Finance

After organizing the colonies’ debts in 1972, the United States’s first Secretary of the Treasury, Alexander Hamilton, issued a historic document—a bond made out to George Washington for $182.95. It wasn’t the amount that lent the bond historic importance, or even the fact that it was signed by Washington, but that its value was expressed with a dollar sign, the symbol’s first appearance on a federal document. At the Museum of American Finance, this bond is displayed alongside other artifacts from similarly historic moments throughout the history of American economics, giving visitors a unique perspective on the country’s financial foundation. Juxtaposing this historical perspective are the museum’s rotating exhibits, which offer insight on more recent financial affairs such as the credit crisis and the campaign to put Snoopy’s face on the dollar bill.
