This is a false assertion arising from various internet rumors and urban legends.

First, new $1 notes haven't even been printed yet and the only design change will be the start of a new series (2009 or 2010) plus new signatures for the Treasurer and Secretary of the Treasury.

Second, the only change to the location of the motto was that for two years it appeared on the edge of the new Presidential dollar COINS. After a number of religious groups protested about its placement the Mint moved it to a more prominent location on the coins' face.

To keep things in historical perspective, the motto didn't appear on ANY US Coins until 1864, and was only added to the nickel as late as 1938. Paper bills didn't have the motto until the period from 1957 to 1963 depending on denomination. In short, its use on our money is not an historical constant nor does it date back to the founding of the country.
