More monopoly money is printed than real money

This one seems like an Internet myth but it’s true: There is more “Monopoly”money than real money printed in the U.S. every year.

Parker Brothers, the maker of the board game, says it prints $30 billion in Monopoly money every year.

Last year, the U.S. Bureau of Engraving and Printing printed $974 million in real money. About 95 percent of that money printed in the U.S. is to replace old, worn-out bills.

You can bet your little, old shoe that money fact is true!
