Mondays with Mike: The Great Seal of the United States

The back of the One dollar bill has the Great Seal of the United States. There is a lot of symbolism displayed within the seal but the one thing I want to point out is the Latin phrase “Annuit Coeptis”. It translates “He(God) has favored our undertakings.”
