I'm going to go against the grain and say how much I've hated the new look of US currency. The lack of design is appalling... looks like the die maker and accountant decided to have 'some fun'...
Scale is bad, no balance. Lost is the sense of formality that gave our currency a sense of dignity and power. It's almost casual now, considerably less official.
Like they were trying to design something to mirror EU currency...
My 2 cents (ha)

BINGO! Federal Reserve Bank is trying to standardize all world currencies to look very very similar.... which is why US currency and Australian Currency and EU bills etc now all pretty much look the same... It is disgusting the way they have turned the print bills into monopoly money... I am disheartened to see now they are going for the coins too.
