Identifies the systems that design, produce, protect, distribute, and manage America's money. Behind each note is a complex world of process and design, from minting and printing to distribution to protecting its value in the world market to meeting the demands of our nation’s banks. The program journeys behind-the-scenes to places few ever see such as the Bureau of Engraving and Printing, where bills are born; the U.S. Mint, which turns giant coils of metal into the coins we use every day; the Secret Service, where the nation’s top counterfeit experts try to put an end to bogus bills; the Federal Reserve, the heart of the American monetary system; and Dunbar armored cars, whose rolling fortresses help make sure that flow of currency never stops despite the dangers involved.
