Is Space Force’s new banknote the most bizarre currency ever?

Ever since Space Force was established by President Donald Trump in 2019, it's been the source of one bizarre branding story after another. The hype has been mostly concerning its logo, which was ridiculed for its similarity to Star Trek's emblem, and subsequently swiped by Netflix for its show of the same name. Now, the United States Space Force has started inspiring memorabilia just as strange. 

The piece in question is a banknote. A $2 bill, to be exact, with Space Force-themed artwork created in tribute to the creation of the space service branch of the US military. While it looks like a prop from a sci-fi-themed game show, it is actually legal tender that will set you back $14.95. Inspired? You could try creating your own (non-legal) tender using these Photoshop tutorials.
