The first release of a US paper currency in the $100 face value came in 1862 with the release of a United States Note. The original notes had varying designs over time, with one of those notes even featuring a depiction of President Abraham Lincoln. The modern $100 bill was introduced in 1914 as a Federal Reserve Note. Since that time, Benjamin Franklin has featured on the obverse of the bill. The $100 bill is the largest denomination in printed circulation as of July 13, 1969. Previous notes with a larger denomination included the $500, $1,000, $5,000, and $10,000 Federal Reserve Notes. Those were all retired in 1969.
The obverse side of 1 Gram $100 Benjamin Franklin Replica Gold Notes features a portrait of the Founding Father and inventor. The portrait offers a three-quarter profile relief of Franklin from a right-side vantage point. The note replicates the printed inscriptions on an actual $100 bill with a commemorative serial number just like those notes in circulation.
On the reverse face of the 1 Gram Benjamin Franklin Replica Gold Note is a depiction of Independence Hall of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The denomination is noted twice on this face, with a smaller inscription in the upper left and a colorized, horizontally arranged “100” on the right side of the gold note. The weight, purity, and metal content are located in the far lower-right of the gold note on this side.
