Did you know that the United States government at one point circulated bills worth much more than $100?
There was the $500,
The $1,000 bill,
The $5,000 bill,
The $10,000 bill,
And even a $100,000 bill, that was never circulated. It was a gold certificate used within the government and was never released to the general public.
These bills are very rare and would cost a collector much more than the value printed on the bill. Good luck spending these on the street however, many people will find them fake; people have enough problems passing $2 bills sometimes. I would like to thank http://www.purpleslinky.com and http://www.digg.com for bringing this interesting story to my attention.
Very truly yours,
