Highest Denomination United States Banknote

The highest denomination ever printed by the United States is the $100,000 Gold Certificate. It features the portrait of President Woodrow Wilson (1856-1924), the 28th President of the United States from 1913 to 1921. Only 42,000 of these notes were printed. They were used only for transactions between the Federal Reserve and the Treasury Department. These notes were never issued for public circulation. When the Government stopped using them in the early 1960s, most were destroyed.
