I seriously doubt that.

Just see right here how many people enjoying online shopping! Paper is fading already! It's a beautiful paper tho! But Electronic money is what i assume will be spread more and more.

It will probably be plastic. Canada has converted to that already.

There may always be need for small amounts of cash to pay for incidental items but the trend is toward a cashless society. Maybe we'll manage to scrap the stuff altogether.

So let's start a pressure group to protect the jobs of Mint Workers. They're an endangered species. I nominate Ancient Hippy to be our first president. (I want to be *heh, heh, heh* treasurer.)

Yes ... It will be.

People thought checks would make currency obsolete ... Then they thought credit cards would.  There will always be a demand for hard currency.

Today, Sweden uses cash for only 20% of transactions. Expects to be cashless by 2030 (could also be 3% depending on which internet article you read.. Wish they would date those things)  If there is any money in circulation in 75 years, I would say it will be coins or plastic bills.
