Duck characters on money

Are you sick of all these dumb presidents and things littering our currency? I know I am. We could immediately improve the economy if only we were willing to implement the following foolproof plan:
Penny--Gus Goose
Nickel--April, May, and June Duck
Dime--Magica de Spell
Quarter--Neighbor Jones
Fifty-Cent Piece--Beagle Boys
Dollar Coin--Flintheart Glomgold
Dollar Bill--Donald Duck
Two-Dollar Bill--Grandma Duck
Five-Dollar Bill--Daisy Duck
Ten-Dollar Bill--Ludwig Von Drake
Twenty-Dollar Bill--Grandma Duck
Fifty-Dollar Bill--Gyro Gearloose
Hundred-Dollar Bill--Huey, Dewey, and Louie Duck
Five-Hundred-Dollar Bill--Gladstone Gander
Thousand-Dollar Bill--Scrooge McDuck
Five-Thousand-Dollar Bill--Goldie O'Gilt
Ten-Thousand-Dollar Bill--Cornelius Coot

Put Fethry on the food stamps and I'm there. You know he wants to feed the poor—he'll make them sample his tofurkey and algae granola, but his heart is in the right place.

(Actually, how did you determine that Goldie, of all people, merited a high figure bill?)

Okay--Fethry can be in, as long as it's on non-currency. As for Goldie, it happened thus: I thought--naturally--that Scrooge should be on a high-denomination. Then I thought--what the hell--in the name of Romance, Goldie ought to be higher, to represent, I don't know, value, or unattainability, or something along those lines. As in, Scrooge is high up, but there's STILL something he wants that he can't have. Yeah--that seems to make sense, sort of. I was considering leaving her out altogether and just putting Barks himself on the ten-thousand, but I ultimately felt that that would have lacked the conceptual purity I was going for.

Incompetence on my part. Can't believe no one's noticed that in all these years. I'll fix it when I have a moment.
