Encyclopedia > U.S. five dollar bill

The U.S. five dollar bill ($5) is a denomination of United States currency. U.S. President Abraham Lincoln is currently featured on the front side of the bill, while the Lincoln Memorial is featured on the reverse side.

The $5 bill is sometimes nicknamed a fin, although this usage is far less common today than it was in the early 20th century.

Five dollar bills are delivered by Federal Reserve Banks in red straps.
