Did you know how Many US Dollar Bills Are There In Circulation? infographic
When you think about it, the journey of each individual currency note is pretty incredible.
After being printed or minted, each bill is then passed between people and businesses to facilitate Transactions. If it’s a $1 or $5 bill, it changes hands on average about 110 times per year – and if it’s a $20 bill, it’s more like 75. The interesting part is that almost every transaction is linked to the one before it, and the series of subsequent transactions for each bill creates a unique, broad story.
By the time a bill is retired, it would have facilitated many hundreds of transactions that enabled everything from the purchase of used cars to the shadier deals in underground markets. It’s a pretty interesting tale for such a little piece of paper.
