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?
