This week's Fun Fact #2, "There are 293 ways to make change for a dollar"
is true. It sounded about right, so I checked and did the calculation.
The total number of ways to make \$1 using any combination of pennies,
nickels, dimes, half-dollars, and dollars, is indeed 293.

I only came up with 292 combinations. Which one am I missing?

The obvious one.
