The English is not correct on this. A quantity of money is treated as a singular. The English sentence should read, "This is my last twenty dollars."

"This is my last 20." Yeah, no but maybe okay very informally. "This is my last $20" is correct and not a typo.

Yeah, I got the same thing, and there seems to be no way of reporting that what they call a typo, is not a typo, apart from reporting that "the Spanish sentence is unnatural or has an error", and it isn't. Sigh.

I guess "These are my last twenty dollars" would be OK if I had twenty one-dollar coins.

'This' could also be accepted. However, the phrase makes sense so long as it's not a single $20 bill. 'These are my last twenty pesos' sounds fine, doesn't it?
