Distinguishing between the USA coins is difficult for ESL students. These cards are designed to go with the match up boards (free directions for making your own in my shop) my dad designed and made for me. The first card matches the name with the front and back of each coin/bill (penny, nickel, dime, quarter, half dollar, dollar bill). The second card matches the name with the value and number needed to make a dollar. The card is printed and cut on the marks. I then slide it into the board and the students use rubber bands to match the terms on the left with the picture / value on the other side. If you print the cards double-sided (pg. 2 & 3, pg. 4 &5) the center becomes an answer key—just slide it out, turn it over and slide it back in.
