comment English word for “monnaie” in the context of money creation

comment English word for “monnaie” in the context of money creation
@Gilles I am a fluent speaker of both languages but this is a specialized domain. The context of the magazine article is about how banks create [and destroy] money through credit to maintain the money supply.

comment Word to describe someone who doesn't appreciate what another person has done for them
This sounds very close to the French word "ingrat" which means someone who is ungrateful.
