From time to time we get pretty jealous of the yanks. One, they get more sunshine than us, two they have milk duds (try them, you won't regret it) and three they have a goofball for a president. But when it comes to the US dollar we always thought that our Royals' mug shots always won out. And while we don’t like to admit defeat, today we have to concede that theirs is the superior currency.

Thanks to artist Dan Tague, the US dollar has become a thing of art. He spends hours sculpting the bills into well-known sayings and phrases. Each piece is folded over a 100 times to create the works and are a way for Tague to make political statements. They also look rather ace.

Just don’t ask us to pay for anything with them.
