The correct answer to this question is Cent. Both dollars and cents are forms of currency. Not only is it currency in the United States, but cents are used in Russia, Europe, and formally Canada. In the United States, 1 cent is referred to as a penny. Since 1909, President Abraham Lincoln has been featured on the coin.

The 1 cent coin is 0.0598 inches thick and 0.75 inches in diameter. It is made of 97.5& zinc and 2.5% Copper. The production year of the coin appears on it, as well as the words In God We Trust, United States of America, and In God We Trust.

With all currency, there is the primary unit which would be the dollar, and along with the central unit, there is a subunit, which is a fraction or percentage of the central unit. Many countries have several subunits or multilevel. The US dollar uses the decimal system consisting of 100 equal cents so the subunit would be the cent.

There is yet another division of the dollar, which is the dime, and there are ten dimes to the dollar. Along with the penny and the money, there are the nickel, quarter and half a dollar.
