How much US currency is in circulation?
There are various estimates, since the exact amount of US currency gets estimated differently. Assuming "currency" means federal reserve notes and coins used as legal tender, the best guess is about $829 billion dollars. However, that number increases frequently. It is estimated that well over one-half of US currency is held in countries other than the United States. Most "money" is actually "created" as electronic transfers between banks and does not rely on physical paper money at all. Roughly 80 percent of all financial transactions, in terms of dollar amount (not number of transactions), are handled that way.

I found this approximate answer here: http://www.newyorkfed.org/aboutthefed/fedpoint/fed01.html "There is about $829 billion dollars of U.S. currency in circu…lation; the majority is held outside the United States." A couple of paragraphs later, it says the figure is from December 2007.

No one keeps an exact count of coins in circulation because their usage is too wide and too diffuse. However, the U.S. Mint does provide figures for how many coins are m…inted each year, but those numbers don't account for how many older coins are lost, stolen, melted, exported, etc., which of course reduces the total in circulation.
As of December 18, 2009: $13,669.70 See related link for the current exchange rate.

Higher denomination bills have never been recalled and technically can still be spent, but Banks haven't been permitted to distribute them since 1969 They'r…e generally worth more as collectibles Those earlier bills were printed in denominations of $500, $1000, $5000, and $10,000. Only the first two saw any common use because $5000 was an enormous sum at the time. The Treasury also printed special $100,000 bills but they were only used for transactions within the Federal Reserve System. None were put into circulation and it was in fact illegal to own one.
