Did you know that there used to be a 2-cent coin? Or that the first actual American currency was Continental currency, created in 1775 – but it failed. Or that there used to be bills for 5, 10, 25 and 50 cents? That’s right. There was a 5-cent bill in 1863. Glad we got rid of that one.

Another cool U.S. Dollar fact that got our attention was Martha Washington appearing on the $1 silver certificate in 1886. She remains the only woman to ever appear on U.S. paper money. Also, the penny as we know it today was introduced in 1909 to commemorate Lincoln’s 100th birthday. It’s also the only coin to have a right-facing portrait.
