AnswerCurrent paper money denominations are:
  • $1 - President George Washington
  • $2 - President Thomas Jefferson (this denomination isn't commonly used)
  • $5 - President Abraham Lincoln
  • $10 - 1st Treasury Secretary Alexander Hamilton
  • $20 - President Andrew Jackson
  • $50 - President Ulysses S. Grant
  • $100 - Statesman and scientist Benjamin Franklin

At one time the US also issued $500, $1000, $5000, and $10,000 bills for general circulation, and printed special $100,000 bills for use inside the government. Printing was discontinued in 1945. In 1969 banks were ordered to stop distribution of high-denomination bills as a way of combatting organized crime.

Current coin denominations are

  • 1¢ ("penny", in common parlance)
  • 5¢ (nickel)
  • 10¢ (dime)
  • 25¢ (quarter)
  • 50¢ (half or half-dollar; rarely used)
  • $1 (dollar)

Discontinued denominations include 0.5¢, 2¢,3¢, half-dime (5¢ but different from the nickel), 20¢, $1 (gold and silver), $2.50, $3, $4, $5, $10, and $20.

See Related QuestionsThe original question was simply "What are the different denominations?" and was placed in the Religion & Spirituality FAQ. Since there is already a question essentially identical to that one from a religion standpoint, and since another individual chose to answer from a different point of view, I've chosen to make this a money-related question. See the list of Related Questions, though, for the answer to the original question from a religious point of view.
