I'm really curious about the true value of money, as it makes little sense to me. For example, is there an actual value to money of is it all just in our heads? Please share your opinions with me!

All value is just in our heads. Everything is worth whatever whoever is willing to give for it, or do for it. Gold can be worthless. Water can be precious. It all depends, completely, on who you ask, and on what situation they are in.

Currency and money are different. Currency is tangible money, which is a medium of exchange. That medium could be cattle, barrels of wine, tons of coal or gold bars - it's just that currency is more convenient.
But to a certain extent, the value of currency is artificial and affected by things like international agreements and the decisions of governments. That's why some people still like to convert currency into things that have tangible value, like gold ingots.

Money, in its current form, is a promise to repay a debt, with interest. It has value because the government that created it, will accept it as payment of taxes owed.

The UK pound used to say "I promis to pay the bearer one pound". That was one pound of gold (hence one pound) which has its own intrinsic value. The note itself was, in effect, a token with little or no value which made it far more practical to use.
When the gold standard was abondoned and the reserves sold off the face value of the notes became meaningless. Their acceptability as trading tokens was maintained but their value has been undermined by successive devaluations and inflation.
It's more about the value put on promises, and what you can get in exchange
