ABOl T MONEY
Some facts about money may be of
interest, although that commodity it-
self is rather scarce as far as most of
us are concerned. Our word “dollar,”
by the way, is from the German term
“thaler,” a piece of money first
coined in Berlin about the year 1518.
The United States silver dollar was
first minted in 1794. Its intrinsic val-
ue is less than half its face value, as
it contains only 412.4 grains of sil-
ver. The origin of the dollar mark
($) is not known with certainty.
The motto, “In God We Trust,"
first appeared on a bronze 2-eent
piece in 1864, and since 1855 has been
used on gold and silver coins. The
eagle appeared on the first coins is-
sued, and on most coins ever since.
Coinage of silver dollars has practi-
cally ceased in recent years.
