Buck is a slang term used for the Dollar. According to etymology, the word originally is driven from “deerskins” which was used as a medium of exchange back in the 1700’s. The U.S. Dollar became the leading medium of exchange once it was introduced after the Coinage Act in 1792, though the “Buck” term remained being used for the Dollar.
