A coin collector showed me a Russian coin that he had recently purchased which dated from the early 18th century that pictured Peter the Great with pyramid symbol and the all seeing eye above his bust in profile. I found it interesting that this nearly 300 year old Russian coin would have the same iconography as the dollar bill and associated the image with power and greatness. As there are many conspiracy theories of a New World Order, I thought it appropriate to juxtapose this symbol against a field of soldiers while replicating the look of the symbol as depicted on the back of the dollar bill.
