Money is something we all use every day, but we often don’t think about its history or where its been. Of course, we might not necessarily want to know where our money has been either.

Quicken Loans put together this lovely infographic highlighting some key moments and interesting tidbits in our currencies history. I did not know there once was a 2 cent coin, and I would absolutely love to have one of the never-circulated $100,000 gold certificates. I bet I’m not the only one either.
