But Seriously : What About Braille on Dollar bills?

Dennis, the Netherlands, via email ...
“Before the very ugly Euro was introduced, we had the Dutch Guilder in Holland. This was one of the most beautiful and awarded designs ever produced. Something I miss very much are the Braille symbols the Guilder used, which differentiated each note. The Netherlands was (as far as I know) the only country that used Braille to help the blind better recognize their money more easily. When you redesign the dollar please don’t forget about the disabled people. The illustration shows how the same method used on the Guilder could be applied to the Dollar bill.”
