Synopsis by Elizabeth Smith
Government officials explain how America's currency is minted before it's inspected and shipped out all across the country. Additional segments reveal how older bills and coins are disposed of once they become worn out, the success of the new quarters honoring all 50 states, and what often happens after minor minting errors occur. Some of the artists who help design the currency talk about what they enjoy most about their work. One segment also addresses special currency issues currently facing the Canadians and the Europeans.
