The MAD FIGS Dollar Bill was created at a Track practice at Bullard High School. It is a normal one dollar bill, with a few special modifications added by the MAD FIGS. George Washington is colored red, green, and blue, and is saying "He sits in my living room, MAD FIGS, to stay" (paraphrased quote from the MAD FIGS Theme Song). The bill has also been modified to read "In MAD FIGS We Trust."
As of June 1997, Jacob had custody of the Dollar Bill. This was odd, because the original doctrine concerning it was that the MAD FIGS member who could pole vault the highest would posses the Dollar Bill. It is believed that Jacob earned the Dollar Bill by accomplishing some task set by the Great Vinnardo, who had previously controlled it. This means that whoever possesed the Dollar Bill would have a certain amount of control over the other MAD FIGS, and could get them to do almost anything in exchange for the Dollar Bill.
The Back of the MAD FIGS Dollar
Before leaving for his mission, Jacob passed the dollar on to Paul, the rightful owner. However, in 1999 a new doctrine was created, stating that control of the dollar would belong to the winner of the previous year's Septathalon. The Animal emerged victorious in 1999, and vigorously defended his title for 7 years in a row. Unfortunately, by this time the location of the Dollar was unknown. Photoshopped images were able to keep the world economy stable for a time, but things started to look bad when rumors about the truth leaked out in 2008. Eventually, the MAD FIGS Dollar was found and passed on to Matt after his victory in 2013.
In addition to the original MAD FIGS Dollar, a limited 2nd Edition was created by Jacob. Only 10 of the bills exist, possessed by each of the MAD FIGS. Their true values are incalculable, but no one would ever think of spending them anyway.

In 2012, Lito created an accurate replica of the MAD FIGS Dollar to be used in place of the missing original, which had not been seen in public for many years. However, after the offical MAD FIGS Dollar was found and presented to the winner in 2013, the 2 dollar bill was instead used as a second place award.
In addition to the offical editions, there also exist two counterfeit MAD FIGS Dollars. The first was created by the Animal for use in the awards ceremony of the 2000 Septathalon (apparently he was so confident of victory that he did not consider having to hand over the real thing within the realm of possibility). The second was made by vinnardo in 2009 since the original was not available for the Septathalon awards ceremony. The whereabouts of these artifacts are currently unknown.
