Have you ever wondered how we got the symbol for the dollar sign?
The 2 lines going through the dollar sign represents the pillars of Hercules.
What do the pillars represent? The pillars represent free masonry.
The two pillars of Hercules – two promontories on either side of the eastern end of the Strait of Gibraltar: the Rock of Gibraltar in Europe and the Jebel Musa inAfrica; fabled to have been raised by Hercules.
The S was always disguised to be a serpent.
