United States paper money has been called by a lot of different names over the years, and that's only a small part of its fascinating history. Do you know which three bills are the only ones with pictures of men who have not been president? Or what practically foolproof methods have been invented to thwart counterfeiters? Or how many $100,000 bills are actually in circulation? Answers to all these questions, along with funny and informative facts about the many people and objects whose pictures appear on our paper money, can be found in this entertaining and educational look at what is really in our wallets!
