๐Ÿ™‹โ€โ™€๏ธTwo-bit

Hi Everyone!

Do you know what “two-bit” means? I have heard it when I was younger a couple of eons ago.

Answer: Two bits is commonly understood in America to be one quarter. The word โ€œbitโ€ long meant, in England, any coin of a low denomination. In early America, โ€œbitโ€ was used for some Spanish and Mexican coins that circulated and were worth one-eighth of a peso, or about 12 and one-half cents. Hence, two bits would have equaled about 25 cents.

Very interesting wouldn’t you say.

In your country has it ever “coined” a phrase similar to USA?

Have a great day! Hope
