It's not the largest denomination, but the $20 bill holds a very special place in our hearts and wallets. Maybe it's because it's what people in heists always request? (Non-sequential.) Maybe it's because $20 is the highest denomination you can whip out without causing eye rolls? Or maybe it's because it's the perfect amount to wager with a friend: high enough to raise the stakes, low enough not to devastate whomever loses.
Did you know, on average, a $20 bill lasts only four years in circulation? True story. If you don't believe me, check if any of the $20 bills below have recently been buried in your wallet. (They haven't. Which makes 'em even cooler.)
