Did you Know?

The U.S government first issued paper money in the mid-1800’s to help finance the Civil War. At the time most things were printed only in black and white so to prevent counterfeiting the bills were colored green with a special dye that was difficult to manufacture.  The bills were only green on one side which led to the nickname “greenbacks”. In 1929 the government standardized the size of the bills to what you still see today. The same chemicals are used to dye the bills, but as technology has improved so has security against counterfeiting.  New bills include features like 3-D images, color changing inks and hidden watermarks to prevent unauthorized replication.

It’s important to know where and how to exchange money when traveling in America. Most money exchangers charge a fee, but some offer a discount if you’re exchanging large sums of money at one time. Before you exchange your money look up the international rates and do some research to find the best priced and most convenient location in your area. Here are a couple of places to get you started!
