  1. 1.
    $1
    one of the lowest denominations there is, base level paper money tbh
  2. 2.
    $2
    somehow not nearly as useful as a $1 bill, despite being worth literally double.
  3. 3.
    $5
    Lincoln's second chance at having his face on currency after we zonked him with that whole penny situation.
  4. 4.
    $10
    ten-spot, tenor, binary code money, and the only bill to eschew the usual green palette in exchange for that gross burnt sienna/bad instagram filter looking sepia tone. the only bill your mom has on her, ever.
  5. 5.
    $20
    all the sweet action happens here, people love this money despite the fact that no one ever has change for it and everyone always needs change for it. the $20 bill is the hope of a brighter tomorrow.
  6. 6.
    $50
    the most frustrating denomination and the most likely to be not accepted at your local convenience store
  7. 7.
    $100
    hundos! meme money
  8. 8.
    $1,000
    money with commas
  9. 9.
    $10,000
    pretty much just the stuff of briefcase filling for action movies
