#WhyArmenia: Christopher Ter-Serobyan
Can you imagine the US Dollar in a different color? Christopher Ter-Serobyan created the green color that can't be faked.
Have you ever thought why the US Dollars are green? Here’s the answer: the purpose of choosing this specific color is that it is very difficult to reproduce.
There was a period of time in the United States when faking banknotes has been a widespread practice. The US wanted to protect its population from this fraud, so a complex color has been created by talented young Armenian chemist Ter-Serobyan who mixed green with pink, orange and other colors in 1854 and created green zveta dollars that cannot be faked! For this work he received 6000$.
