This book is awesome. It is only about 77 pages but it has photos of all the money that is in circulation and the different looks to it and it also gives you some history on the currency as well. But really I just like it because it’s pictures of lots and lots of money. There’s only 1 $1 bill design in circulation, but there are 3 for $5s, $10s and $20s, $50s and $100s. (And 1 for $2 bills) Kind of interesting. But that’s because they haven’t gone and made colorful $1 bills yet.
Super interesting read for anyone who likes money. And that is just about everyone now isn’t it?
I received a free e-copy of this book to review from the publisher through NetGalley. I was not otherwise compensated.
