In 1914, the very first U.S. Federal Reserve currency notes were issued. Among them, $100 note featuring founding father Benjamin Franklin. Since then, every $100 bill issued has featured Franklin’s image.
For the last 45 years, the $100 bill has been the largest denomination U.S. currency issued by the government. The design of the $100 note has changed with the times – and now includes distinctive security features that are incorporated into this beautifully designed pure silver note.
Styled after a modern $100 US bank note (although not legal tender), the America is made from 5 grams of 99.9% pure proof quality silver.
