In 1775 the Continental Congress of the United States authorized the issuance of Continental Currency. It was the first currency of the US, and it was denominated in dollars.

By May 1781, Continentals had become so worthless they ceased to circulate as money. Hyperinflation, crazy monetary policies and war has destroyed it.

On July 6, 1785, the Continental Congress of the United States authorized the issuance of a new version of the US currency ("the US dollar").

So, dollar was down for 4 of 242 years. Therefore, its uptime is 99.98{88c91daedd271a990a10650c05d769cae2765e0603edf30ca95f18704e5748e8}.
