“How much does it cost? 20 bucks” you’ve no doubt heard this phrase before. Saying bucks instead of “dollars”. But where does that even come from?
It actually refers to deer skins from male deer, or “bucks” as they are usually called. This is because during the early 1700s, deer skins were used as an informal currency for buying good. Then it just stuck ever since as a slang term.
