It interesting how there is a name for everything. I was looking at currency design after posting the Amero article (SEE THIS LINK) and came across Guilloche Patterns…they are the little squiggly lines that are around the edges of or declining in value dollar…apparent there are programs to create them…not only are the patterns used for US doller but also the Euro and other foreign currency…..
(In Adobe Illustrator Try Holding down Tilde ( ~)…its close but not exact)
