United States dollar – currency history
Coins called dollars were made in Spanish colonies in both Americas. 1 coin had the value of 8 reals – and it remained so until the end of the 17th century, when dollar became a separate national currency. The dollar symbol, a crossed out S, comes from the manner of writing the value of 1 dollar as an eight in brackets. With time, the notation underwent subsequent changes until it acquired its present form.
As for the name of dollar itself, its „great-grandfather” is thaler – a 16th-century coin minted from an ounce of silver. For many years, the value of the dollar was exchangeable for ounces of gold – dollar reference values to gold were finally abolished only in 1973.
Until the second half of the 19th century, dollars functioned only in the form of coins, and the first banknotes appeared during the Civil War in 1861. Since the beginning, dollars had its characteristic green reverse to help prevent forgery. What is interesting, each dollar banknote, regardless of its year of production, is a legal tender. So, even if you had a dollar from the 19th century, you could still use it to pay for your shopping, even today.
