Movie prop money can look very similar to real money but the texture and size are different than actual United States currency.

Often times “For Motion Picture Use Only”, “Copy”, “This Note Is Not Legal Tender”, “For Motion Picture Use Only” or a similar phrase is printed on at least one side of the bill.

The movie prop money is intended to be used on camera so there is no need for the texture to feel like legitimate cash.

Under federal law, the use or attempted use of counterfeit currency is illegal if the person has the intent to defraud the recipient. A conviction for the offense carries up to 20 years in prison and a fine.
