Evolution of Money from Coins to Apple Pay

The folks at Choice Loans have published an infographic called “The Evolution of Payment Methods” that traces the development of money from coins to Apple Pay. I love this infographic because it lets me get my history geek and my tech geek on.

That said, my numismatic geek is all cranky because the timeline says the 1¢ piece was first minted in 1909, 5¢ piece was first minted in 1938, 10¢ and 25¢ were first minted in 1965, and 50¢ and $1 were first minted in 1971. All of which are wrong by a century or so, give or take a decade here and there.

The other factoids—or at least the ones I know about—are accurate, however, and I think it’s interesting. Check it out.
