Rando-Pedia: Obsolete US Currency

by Jasondeuman

U.S currency is the most boring money in the world. When I came across this article I was surprised to find that our money was always pretty boring.   Case in point, the $100,000 bill had Woodrow Wilson on it.  I think everyone would agree that the largest denomination should have been given to Big Money McKinley (Actual nick-name I gave McKinley in 8th grade).

What makes the $100,000 bill even more boring is that it wasn’t even in public circulation.  It was for internal government transactions.  Also, why is the government buy stuff from itself? It this like when my kids ask me for a quarter to buy me a present?

This article is one to watch though as the Penny’s days are numbered.
