The $1 bill is a Federal Reserve Note valued at 100 cents (equivalent to 20 nickels, 10 dimes, or 4 quarters). On July 10, 1929, it started off as a small-size Silver Certificate, and it remained only that way until 1963, when it officially became a Federal Reserve Note, following the discontinuation of Silver Certificates. As of the mid-1960s, probably as of early Series 1963A, virtually every $1 bill in circulation was now a Federal Reserve Note.

Originally, the serial numbers were printed through conventional equipment, but since 1971, the BEP introduced a new system called the Currency Overprinting and Processing Equipment (COPE), and since then, new serial numbers were printed using that equipment. The COPE printing went into permanent effect in the spring of 1977, and as of 1979, virtually all $1 bills in circulation have serial numbers printed through COPE.

On the front is a portrait of George Washington (the first president of the United States of America), and on the back is the Great Seal of the United States.
