This is a copy of an actual one hundred thousand dollar ($100,000) Gold Certificate, Series 1934.
These notes were printed from December 18, 1934 through January 9, 1935 and were issued by the Treasurer of the United States to Federal Reserve Banks only against an equal amount of gold bullion held by the Treasury. These notes were used for transactions between Federal Reserve Banks and were never circulated among the general public. This note was the largest denomination printed by the Bureau of Engraving and Printing and features a portrait of Woodrow Wilson, the Twenty-Eighth President of the United States. The one hundred dollar ($100.00) note has been the largest denomination printed since 1946, and in 1969 all notes greater than a one hundred dollar ($100.00) note were retired because of declining demand.
