Origin of simoleon

  • Origin unknown

    From American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language, 5th Edition

  • Most commonly accepted theory: late 19th century macaronic blend of simon (“dollar"), from simon (“sixpence coin") (17th-century British slang), and Napoleon (“French gold coin worth 20 francs, bearing the image of Napoleon III"). Perhaps from New Orleans. Also see simony.
