Where money comes from

ZingWhen I first came to Earth, I didn’t know what money was – until I ran out of gas!

I had to figure out how to get gas money – and other things – on Earth. So, I looked everywhere for money…under rocks, in stores, in trees – everywhere!

Then I learned where money really comes from. It all starts here, at the Treasury. They create, or “mint,” coins and print bills for everyone to use. The money then goes far and wide, to businesses and places called banks. In a few minutes, we’ll see how money ends up in your pocket.
