Sacajawea should be acceptable-- I played with spellings and didn't even think to change the J to a G.

Definitely male dominated. Trump is the President-elect of the USA. And I don't know how many women he'd like to appoint.

You should add multiple phonetic spellings of sacagawea, I typed out numerous combinations, all with J instead of G, none would go

Somethings: Sacagawea is on the gold dollar The $500 and $1000 dollar bills aren't in circulation anymore. If you are adding ones in circulation add: $5000 James Madison $10000 Salmon P. Chase $100000 Woodrow Wilson

Right. I believe it was for war debts. I think they only made a few and were never circulated. Still fun trivia though. And considering this website is trivia website, I think they should be included.

Jefferson's on the $2 and he's already on the list for the nickel. It's the same reason $1 and $5 aren't on the list either.

Yeah... seems almost insulting to put them on money over Teddy Roosevelt, John Adams, or Woodrow Wilson. Though perhaps when printed Wilson was considered too recent. They could have swapped in the other two, though. Or even Polk.

A google search turned up the answer that Sec. of Treasury Andrew Mellon chose all the people who appear on paper currency, and he chose the people he most admired. BTW, I have several $100,000 bills but Art Linkletter is on them.

Jefferson's on the $2 as well, apparently, and wasn't there a $100,000 with Wilson on it? Anyway, this would be a good idea for the UK. Maybe not include the Queen, though.

I think this quiz would be improved by including all the denominations of coins and bills. Because of the duplication, it would have to be set up as an "Answer must correspond to highlighted yellow box," style quiz, but many more questions could be added.

Why not call a cent by its proper name rather than the slang use of penny? I didn't see "buck", "sawbuck" or "double-sawbuck" on the quiz so why "penny"? Pennies were used by the tyrannical government our forefathers so desperately wanted to be freed from. Our numismatic history goes back to the Coinage Act of 1792 and from Day One, it was called a cent, as in one per cent of a dollar. Let's embrace the name "cent" while we still have it around. There, I'm done...
