100+ Words Related to Money

There are nearly just as many ways to talk about money as there are ways to use money. Some you have heard of before, others might have you scratching your head. Let’s check out some excellent words related to money.



You’ve most definitely heard people talk about “Benjamins” when referring to money. This relates to the Founding Father Benjamin Franklin, whose face graces the front of the $100 bill. 

If you’re “getting the Benjamins,” you’re making a lot of money. Interestingly, the first $100 bill to depict the face of Mr. Franklin was produced in 1914.


In contrast to the previous example, “pennies” is used to speak about a relatively unsubstantial amount of money. As the smallest denomination of US currency, you need 100 pennies to make a single dollar. 

These copper coins are handy when paying for cheap items or for very specific prices, so you don’t have to break larger bills. The first pennies in the US were released in 1793. 

If you want to describe something as affordable or cheap, the term pennies is a great way to do it.


Cash is the most commonly used form of money. This term refers to the physical form of paper money. Whether it is US dollars, European euros, Japanese yen, Mexican pesos, or Chinese yuan, cash is used for daily transactions around the world. “Cash money” is another playful way to refer to money.


You’ve probably heard at least a few people refer to money as “dough” in informal contexts. It’s a fun and light-hearted way to talk about money, especially when it involves a large of money. If you have a ton of money, you might talk about “rolling in the dough,” which extends the cooking pun even further.

Chump Change

Chump change is the opposite of dough;  it refers to a small amount of money. Think about the last time you found a few coins in your back pocket that you had forgotten about. This would be described as chump change. 


Using the word cabbage might be an unconventional way to refer to money, but, believe it or not, it’s a popular money slang. Many think that the only connection between this vegetable and money is the color green, but according to a post from the Huffington Post, the mob was responsible for coining the slang. 


If you are looking for another creative way to say “money,” say “cheddar.”

There are different speculations about the origin of this money slang, but the widely accepted reason is the “government cheese,” which was exchanged with a food stamp. 

Credit Card

A credit card is a little piece of plastic that lets you borrow money from the bank. 

Each credit card has a spending limit. So, every time you use a credit card to buy groceries or a pair of new shoes, your available credit decreases. When you pay the borrowed money, the limit will return to its original amount. 

For banks to make money from credit cards, they impose an interest rate. 


“Purse” is another example of common money words. You might not use them as much as “cash” or “change” in conversations, but adding “purse” to your vocabulary makes perfect sense if you think about it. This fashion accessory keeps cash, coins, checks, and wallet in one place. 

Interestingly, it’s also a formal way (power of the purse) to speak about a government’s spending power.
