For anyone who’s already read the 11th reflection in my 50 series, this is a photo that I added to the original post.
The bills my uncles gave us when we’d visit were much different, but we spent those.
These are the current ones in circulation.
While still called paper money, they are actually printed on polymer or plastic. The five is the lowest denomination of paper money. There are $1 and $2 coins. They no longer use pennies.
Consequently, when we went out to eat, we were charged $94.23 if we used a credit or debit card or $94.25 if we paid cash. It took about a day to get used to.
