Five Dollar Bill

January 18, 2012 by staff 

Five Dollar Bill, The United States five-dollar bill or fiver ($5) is a denomination of United States currency. The $5 bill currently features U.S. President Abraham Lincoln’s portrait on the front and the Lincoln Memorial on the back. All $5 bills issued today are Federal Reserve Notes. Five dollar bills are delivered by Federal Reserve Banks in red straps.

The $5 bill is sometimes nicknamed a “fin”. The term has German/Yiddish roots and is remotely related to the English “five”, but it is far less common today than it was in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

The Bureau of Engraving and Printing says the average life of a $5 bill in circulation is 16 months before it is replaced due to wear. Approximately 6% of all paper currency produced by the U.S. Treasury’s Bureau of Engraving and Printing in 2009 were $5 bills.
