Here’s the Reason Why You Can’t Photocopy Money

If you have ever attempted a life as a counterfeiter, or done a stupid school project where you tried to print your own money, you already know this: you can’t make a copy of any type of bill, no matter the denomination.

For older bills, it was because of the Eurion constellation, which is an order of dots that appears on pretty much every major currency. Today, there’s a new counterfeit deterrence system which includes the Eurion constellation but also has other mysterious forces at work.

Wendover Productions details the endless laws that make it nearly impossible for a normal person to make a copy of money (or even edit it in Photoshop). It’s pretty entertaining.
