Five Largest Dollar Bills
$500. This bill shows 25th US President William McKinley
The money was in circulation from 1934 to 45. They still can be accepted for exchange, like the rest of the money in circulation. Most of them are, of course, at collectors hands.
$1 000. This bill shows Stephen Grover Cleveland
The money began to retire in 1969.
$5 000 with a portrait of James Madison 4th U.S. President
Today, these bills can be put in the bank for deposit. In practice, this, of course, no one does, because bills are much higher than the nominal value and are collector's interest.
$10 000 with a portrait of Salmon Portland Chase
These bills have never been in public circulation, they were used in transactions between Federal Reserve banks. After the advent of electronic money systems, large cash transactions in cash became unnecessary.
