The United States dollar (sign$codeUSD) is the official currency of the United States of America. The U.S. dollar is normally abbreviated as the dollar sign$, or as USD or US$ to distinguish it from other dollar-denominated currencies and from others that use the $ symbol. It is divided into 100 cents.
