History of the US Dollar

Posted on: September 27th, 2012 by c4c-admin-account No Comments

History of the US Dollar ($ USD)

The US dollar is one of the world’s most important currencies; it is more used in international transactions than any other currency, and is one of the most significant global reserve currencies. For all its status as a global institution, though, the dollar is a relatively young currency and has been through many changes over the years.

Prior to independence, the British colonies in America used a wide range of currencies, but the most common was the Spanish peso, known in English as the “dollar” after similar coins minted in what is today the Czech Republic.

After the colonies became independent, Congress ordered a new currency, but one based on the value of the Spanish dollars. Indeed, Spanish and Mexican currency remained in circulation in the US well into the 19th century.The modern US dollar is the product of a long serious of changes over the course of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Almost all of the current coin values have been in circulation since the 1790s, but many others, such as the twenty-dollar “double eagle” gold piece, or the short-lived two-cent coin, are now collectors’ items.

The 1920s and 30s saw the last of these fade away, with the demise of the $2.50, $5, $10 and $20 coins. Since 1933, the familiar American coinage of penny, nickel, dime and quarter has been the standard. 50-cent and $1 coins do exist, but they are far rarer and seldom used in transactions.

Dollar notes, or bills as they are known in the US, come in $1, $2, $5, $10, $20, $50 and $100 denominations. The two-dollar bill is extremely rare, although still legal tender. This range of bills has existed since 1969, when high-value bills such as the $100,000 bill were taken out of circulation. Unlike many currencies, the US dollar uses the same size for all its bills. Recent redesigns to many denominations of bill have prompted some Americans to refer to these as “Monopoly money”, although as with most currency redesigns the initial distrust for the new bills soon faded.

Both dollar bills and coins bear the images of famous Americans, with national symbols on the reverse. Although often referred to as “presidents” (“dead presidents” is a slang term for money), not all of these individuals were presidents. Benjamin Franklin, whose face appears on the $100 bill, and Alexander Hamilton, whose image appears on the $10, were prominent early statesmen who never served as president. Similarly, womens’ rights campaigner Susan B. Anthony and Native American explorer Sacagawea appear on the $1 coin.

If you would like to exchange US Dollar coins, Dollar banknotes or any coins from the USA for cash then we can help you. We specialise in changing foreign coins back into a usable currency of your choice. Contact us for more information.  We have helped countless customers to turn their otherwise useless coins and notes into cash they can use.  What will you do with your extra money?  You might be surprised just how much that old collection of foreign coins is worth.  Send your coins to our helpful and friendly team today and we will count, sort and value them for you.

Foreign Coin History

Posted on: August 25th, 2012 by c4c-admin-account No Comments

Foreign coin history

Foreign coin history is an interesting subject as they were the earliest form of money and have survived the test of time to be still used today. Despite credit and debit cards accounting for a huge amount of transactions (especially online) the humble coin still plays an important part in our day-to-day monetary system.

In the Western World it’s estimated that coins were invented around 700 BC – it’s thought that they were originated in Aegina Island. Coins nowadays are quite complex in their make-up however early coins were also made up of a number of combined metals such as electrum combined with silver and copper. Electrum itself is a light yellow coloured metal that contains a mix of both silver and gold.

Roman and Greek coins are very popular with collectors. The Byzantine Empire was prolific when it came to coin production, their coins would depict emperors and the Christian cross.

When it comes to foreign coins that were cast instead of hammered then we can go all the way back to the 11th Century to see samples. Tong Bei coins was commonplace with the Han Dynasty and the Warring States Period.

It’s interesting to note that in the same way that different animals had different ‘trade’ values (such as a cow being worth more than a chicken) then this was mirrored in the production of some coins. Some early coins for example were shaped the same as various animals (such as a cow).

As with many foreign coins today they are and were predominantly round, however there were a few that were square in shape. It was also common for many coins to have a hole in the middle so they could be threaded on a piece of string. This you can still see today with some Asian coins and coins from the Nordic region.

Gold and silver features heavily throughout the history of foreign coins, from the colour that we see today through to some coins containing various levels of these precious metals. The earliest pure gold and silver coins date back to the 7th Century and are the gold Dinar and silver Dirham.

Interestingly the most valuable gold coin in the world is the 1933 Gold Double Eagle which sold for an incredible $7.5 million back in 2002. This coins has a very interesting history on it’s own and you can read more here:

For many of us who go abroad or accept foreign coins as part of a business or charity then you’ll know that they can’t be changed at a bank. However, we offer a fast, efficient and easy way to exchange foreign coins. If you have any foreign or old coins that you’d like to exchange then please go to our page ‘How to send us coins‘.  We make it simple and fast to get your coins changed and we even sort and count them for you saving you even more time.  We give you the service that the bank won’t and we would be delighted to give you assistance with your leftover coins.

Exchange US Dollars for Pounds Sterling or Euros

With all the thousands of people who travel to the USA for holidays and business there are now lots of US Dollars and cents that are brought back to the UK and never exchanged into Sterling. This is because UK Banks will NOT exchange low denomination currency and in particular foreign coins back into Sterling. This is down to the huge expense in counting, sorting and repatriating the currency.

However, here at Cash 4 Coins we will exchange US Dollars and cents back into sterling for you. The service is very fast and simple – you package up your US Dollar notes and coins and post them to us, we count and sort them and e-mail you a valuation.

We exchange coins for hospitals, schools, charities, clubs, businesses, airports and attractions – as well as for lots of private individuals looking to cash in their coins.  Don’t try to change these coins up at your local bank because this is not a service they have to offer.  Instead, send your coins to the experts at Cash4Coins and we will be happy to do the rest.  We don’t even need you to sort or count your coins as we do that for you.  Then, in a matter of days, you could have the exchanged money in your bank or PayPal account.

As you’d imagine the Swiss Franc is the currency of Switzerland but not many people know that it’s also the currency of Liechtenstein. Liechtenstein is also allowed to mint it’s own coins, however this is only usually done for special occasions and commemorations. The Swiss Franc has traditionally been on of the worlds most stable currencies to to the fact that 40% of the currency in general circulation is covered by gold reserves.

The Swiss Franc was unregulated up until half way through the 19th century and was often perceived as complex and variable. This is because many areas within the country produced their own versions of the coins as well as private banks producing their own banknotes.

Many people have collected various foreign coins and banknotes over the years from holidays and work trips abroad – UK Banks will not change the coins back into Sterling so people are left with unused and worthless foreign currency sat in a ‘change jar’ or ‘junk drawer’. However our service will liberate your unwanted coins and turn them into cold hard cash!
