Greenback
Greenback ist die in der Börsensprache gebräuchliche Bezeichnung für den US-Dollar. Der Begriff beruht auf der grünen Rückseite des Dollarscheins.

Die Auseinanderschreibung halte ich für falsch.

Außerdem ist nicht jede Banknote ein greenback. Das gilt nur für den USD.

Not green back; greenback for bills (notes), not usually the currency as such. Dated.
