The question about the first US coin is wrong.  It should be 1792, not 1793.

I got 8/9, missed on the life of a $10 bill.  I was a little surprised that
$20's last longer than $10's.  I don't see $10's used that often.

Actually, from one standpoint, they gave the correct answer as an option
(though I'm sure they didn't realize it)- 1787, when the Fugio cent was
produced (albeit not under the Mint Act, it was produced under US
authority).

I'll back you up on that observation.  At the end of the day, I will have
plenty of 20s, 5s, and 1s, but seldom have enough 10s to start the next day.
Ok, I won't back you up.  Thinking about what I just said, guess which bill
circulates more, the one that goes to the bank (20)or the one that is handed
back to the customer(the ten), probably time and time again.   Bill

Agreed.  That's what happens when one tries to dumb down complicated history to
the level of a trivia question.

I suppose that makes sense.  The $20's go from the cash machine to the till,
and then back to the bank and into the cash machine.  The $10's go back and
forth between businesses and customers.

I missed 2 and they both had to do with bills not coins.  I know virtually
nothing about the printing process. <sigh>
