Press release: Monumental Money: People and Places on U.S. Paper Money


Monumental Money: People and Places on U.S. Paper Money, by Yigal Arkin

Presenting U.S. currency used from the colonial period to the present day, this reference surveys the world of American banknotes and paper currency in three parts:

  • Part one presents all the banknotes in circulation today, including those being slowly withdrawn as newer designs replace them, along with color photographs and a brief description of the people and sites depicted on each note.
  • Part two provides a brief review of the history of the U.S. monetary system, covering the many different types of banknotes that have been used from the colonial period onward.
  • Part three features the high-denomination banknotes no longer in circulation, including the $100,000 note.

This book is a nontechnical, accessible journey through a dimension of history often overlooked in its uniqueness and interest.
