Even the most important argentinian historian claims that Jefferson was an spaniard (it is difficult). Anyway the dollar symbol means Spain and the two bars the "Columnas the Hercules" that are in south of Spain and are a symbol that comes from Reyes Católicos tems (XIV century), One is Gibraltar... Even the american dollar and the "pesos" of Hispano América. comes from the spani
