The Value of United States Currency in Circulation

0

Millions of US coins and bills are exchanged daily and billions of them are in circulation.  Visual Economics put together a great graphic to compare the values and number of currency in circulation, and even looked at how long each stays in circulation. 

Would you have guessed there are almost 6 times as many $100 bills in circulation as there are $20 given that most ATMs use only $20s?  Would you have guessed the $5 bill has the shortest life expectency of any bill, or that there are 4 times as many pennies than any other coin?

$100 bill abound. They're the highest denomination available so they make sense for large physical cash transactions. Maybe they are more associated with drug deals but go to any casino, and you'll see plenty.
