English: Pyramid with the all-seeing eye on the back side of the US 1-Dollar bill
Deutsch: Großsiegel der Vereinigten Staaten auf der Rückseite der 1-US-Dollar-Note. Rückseite des Siegels mit allsehendem Auge auf Pyramide.
Nederlands: Een onvoltooide pyramide op de achterkant van een Amerikaans 1 dollar biljet. Boven deze pyramide staat "Annuit Coeptis" er onder op de basis van de pyramide staat "MDCCLXXVI" en er onder staat "Novus Ordo Seclorum". De tekst is in het Latijns, en het woord Seclorum is een afkorting van Seculorum. Dit omdat men in gedichten wel eens een letter er uit haalde zodat het goed klonk. "MDCCLXXVI" staat voor de datum 1776, in dat jaar op 4 Juli is de onafhankelijkheids verklaring getekend. "Annuit coeptis" staat hier voor "Hij (God) heeft onze handelingen goedgekeurd". En "Novus Ordo Seclorum" staat voor "nieuwe orde der eeuwen" maar is bedoeld als "Het begin van een nieuw amerikaans tijdperk" wat natuurlijk wel het geval is na het tekenen van de onafhankelijkheidsverklaring. daarnaast zijn er ook mensen die het logo verbinden aan complot theoriën en de Illuminati
Русский: Пирамида с «Оком Провидения» («Всевидящим Оком») на обратной стороне купюры достоинством 1 доллар США
