The Real Trump Banknote

An iconic banknote design like no other, capturing a moment in history, with an icon of Americana – US currency design.

Free shipping for all US and UK orders.

This is not the typical cheap ‘banknote’ found on ebay or Amazon. This artwork has been designed and handprinted with real currency printing expertise. The darker areas of the note – the portrait on the front and surrounding text and border, are printed using an artisan intaglio technique – a process that is similar to REAL CURRENCY. Intaglio is a centuries old art form in itself, perfected to a level of precision that rivals the quality of real money.

This print technique is impossible to imitate. It also allowed for ultra high resolution details – like micro texts along the borders and integrated into the portrait.

The portrait has been etched by hand – every line. The note features a portrait on the front and on the back.

The front features the 45th President of the United States, with familiar iconography. The back of the notes are celebrations of US currency’s iconic ‘greenbacks’. Originating from the American Civil War, the green colour of US paper money has been retained to the present, and is an American icon in itself.

The back design shows a side portrait of Donald Trump – hand engraved – surrounded by a quote from a speech made for the 2016 election, that still rings true today. Either side, are numismatic portraits of Eisenhower and Kennedy, with their quotes that relate to ‘the swamp’.

The design is filled with minute details and hidden messages – many can only be seen with a magnifying glass.

To repeat: this is not the kind of cheap ‘banknote’ seen for sale on Amazon. These are designed and printed by hand, rich in a story that will be told for generations. Each note is individually serial numbered in two places, with unique alpha numeric identifiers.

Due to the handmade nature of this artwork, they will be printed in a limited edition of only 2000 pieces.

Out of the 2000, 500 will be reserved for 5 ‘books’ of 100 bills, and 13 uncut sheets of 8, each printed in RED ink on the back, leaving less than 1400 individual notes for purchase.
