Release: H.6 Money Stock Measures
The Board of Governors consolidated this series onto the Statistical Release H.6, "Money Stock Measures", after the H.3 statistical release was discontinued. For more information on the consolidated H.6 release, see the H.6 Technical Q&As.
Currency in circulation includes paper currency and coin held both by the public and in the vaults of depository institutions. The total includes Treasury estimates of coins outstanding and Treasury paper currency outstanding. This definition of currency in circulation differs from the currency component of the money stock (CURRENCY), which excludes currency held in vaults of depository institutions.
