The note was a gold certificate and the highest denomination of United States currency ever produced. Only 42,000 of these notes were printed, and none were ever issued to the public. When the government stopped using the 100,000 dollar bill in the 1960s, many were destroyed. Today, only a handful of the notes are known to exist, and all are in the hands of the United States Government. As a result, the notes are illegal to privately own. Examples are displayed in the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco, Bureau of Engraving and Printing, Smithsonian Institution, and the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond.
