The series is currently the only known example of art, outside of counterfeiting, that uses ultra high resolution intaglio printing. This labor intensive technique creates a slightly raised print, and microscopic details, such as sub-millimeter lines of text, and line widths that cannot be achieved with any commercially available process.
Incredibly, these notes include intaglio printing on both sides. This is rare, even for circulating currency. They are, for all intents and purposes, double-sided artworks, and have the same production quality on both sides.
Each banknote is individually serial numbered, and includes invisible ultra violet features. Only 60 will ever be made, with 20 pieces held in private collections and museums, leaving just 40 available for general purchase, only 25 of which will be offered for this pre-sale.
This artwork intends to capture the spirit of the moment, as a time of shifting narratives, truths revealed, and the rise of cryptocurrency’s legitimacy.
