Dang, George! You really need to exfoliate those pores!

The image of Georgy on the one-dollar bill is taken from a 1796 unfinished painting by Gilbert Stuart. George's photo didn't appear on the original dollar issued in 1862 (it was Salmon P. Chase, Secretary of the Treasury). G wasn't added until the second design in 1869. The early bills were larger in size than todays (7.4218" 3.125" vs 6.14" 2.61") and went through 13 designs at this size before going small in 1929.

In 1957, the $1 bill became the first piece of U.S. currency to bear the motto IN GOD WE TRUST. In 1969 the $1 bill began using the new treasury seal with wording in English instead of Latin. The design of the one-dollar bill has remained the same ever since then. Though bill denominations of $5 and higher have been redesigned twice since 1995 as part of ongoing anti-counterfeiting efforts, there are currently no plans to redesign the $1 bill. So keep printing your phonies in singles. :P
