Friday Shoot My Town- Money

Money in the US is based on the Gold Standard
and the decimal system.

There must be the same amount of Gold at Fort Knox to back up the money in circulation.
(I think) 

The smallest coin is a penny=1cent  nichel=5cents
dime=10 cents
a quarter=25 cents
1/2 dollar = to 50 cents
one dollar=100cents
five dollar bill=500 cents
ten dollar bill=1000cents   

This is all the cash we had in the house for me to photograph.

I happened to have some coins from Bermuda they all have QE II's likeness on them.

There are 3 1.00 coins
the coin in the top center is a 25 cent coin.
Bermuda currency is equal to US.

I had one coin from the Domican Republic which I probably got in Belize.
It is at the far left of the photo.
I was not able to find who's likeness is on that coin.

No, I'm afraid that the gold standard is long gone...back in the 70s I believe. Would that it were so!

Enjoyed everyone's post about money. Some countries do have very colorful and can we say (?) pretty money.

Shows you what I know about our currency. I mostly use cards.

You heard of the joke that foreigners find your money very confusing. same color ? I forgot, the last time I went to US was 1995.

That was a hard topic to make interesting, wasn't it, Peggy? You did well, I think. Any hints on how to introduce a camera? Wonder if there is a protocol?! :)
