A banknote (more commonly known as a bill in the United States and Canada) is a kind of negotiable instrument, a promissory note made by a bank payable to bearer on demand, used as money, and under many jurisdictions is used as legal tender. With coins, banknotes make up the cash forms of all modern money. With the exception of non-circulating high-value or precious metal commemorative issues, coins are generally used for lower valued monetary units, while banknotes are used for higher values.
