How U.S. dollars are created

The dollar production process takes place at the Bureau of Engraving and Printing in Washington State, USA – one of the most protected places.

About 60% of all banknotes in the world are made here.

Each bill undergoes a rigorous quality control process. The making of banknotes involves the use of over 100 different ingredients.

This includes special ink that changes color depending on the angle of view.

The production cost of one-hundred-dollar bill in the United States is 12.6 cents.

Interestingly, the average bill has a lifespan of only 18 months due to heavy use.
