Simoleans are Real?!
There's dough and bread (which was probably derived from dough, if you think about it logically) and big ones... Geez, there's probably dozens more. We really ARE capitalist pigs, aren't we? God Bless America! hahhaha
"Smackeroos" is a variant of "smackers" that I had forgotten as well. Then there's cash, cash money (in specific dialects, this refers to large numbers of bills), and 25 cents is still (very rarely) called "two bits." "Four bits" and "six bits" are only used in cheerleader cheers (if indeed they're used at all) anymore: "Two bits, four bits, six bits, a dollar! Everyone for [insert two-syllable school/team name here] stand up and holler!" (At which point the crowd is supposed to stand up and cheer.)
I am in a parenthetical mood today. (Can you tell?)

I didn't know about it. Even if I'm fluent in English it's still my second language, so I'm not up on every single aspect of American slang. (Especially since AmEng isn't "my" English.) Shocking, I know.
