does it have anything to do with her past? was she in a situation where finding the money could be the worst possible outcome? a blessing? did it remind her of something/someone she knew? held dear?

Is there a timespan from when she found the money and when she started crying? If so, relevant how long?

Does she start crying only because she found the money? or is this a scenario where finding the money leads to a series of events and one of those makes her start crying?

Was she looking for something when she found the money? If so, was she looking for something else? Was she expecting something else?

Found = as in opening something/digging up something/picking up something and by that finding the (physical) money?
Or as in discovering something (like finding money in your bank account you didn't expect)?

Is it relevant what type of money this is (currency, coins, notes)?

Loooooong shot
Was she stuck in a fire and did she check her bag to see if there was anything she could use to escape, but since she found only the $20 bill, started crying?

Relevant what she opens when she finds the money?

One idea just popped into my head: Has something bad happened, for instance someone dying, and it could have been avoided if she had found the money before?

If not this, then would she have cried if she had found the money on a different time? earlier? later? in her life?

Does finding the money make her realise something that makes her cry?
Does she cry from sadness? Happiness? Relief? frustration? Anger? Heightened emotions for some other reason?

Did it make her realise she had been wrong about something? Had she accused somebody else of stealing the money? Was the money hers?
Would something good have happened to her if she hadn't found the money? Did she think she had no money before finding the bill?

The reason why she wouldn't get upset if she found coins: is it to do with the physical properties of a $20 bill? The fact that it's paper rather than metal? Its weight? Or is it just the value that's important? If there was such thing as a $20 coin, would she have been upset at finding that?
Also i think you missed Strongplacebo's questions at 2:28 am, 28th April

Did she find it under something? Relevant what? Or in a very small place, that only something very flat would fir into? Relevant where she was?
If she had found a $1 bill, would she still have started crying (not sure if there is a one dollar bill, but basically I mean if she had found a very small sum of money that couldn't buy much) If she had found a $100 bill? If she had found a blank piece of paper?

Did she find it in a book? Tucked behind a photo? Under a mattress? Inside a CD/DVD cover?

Had it been deliberately hidden? Had she hidden it? Is she upset that someone hasn't already found it? If someone had removed it already would that have been some kind of signal to her? So now she is upset that something has happened to that person?

Is she an adult? Relevant how old specifically?

Is she at home? At work? At school? Indoors? Outdoors?

Is it important what sort of book?
Was she testing their honesty? Their skill at finding something? Is she crying because she wanted them to have the money, and they didn't get it? Is she upset because this proved they hadn't read the book?

She wrote a book, and it was onsale in a bookshop. She placed a $20 bill between the pages (presumably as she could be fairly sure anyone finding it would take it). She returned sometime later, and the fact that the bill was still there showed that nobody had so much as flicked through her book? So she started crying becase nobody liked her writing?
Did the shop only have one copy of her book, so she knew not one person had liked her book?

Good puzzle!
