Big Money

22 Dec

This $100,000 bill is on display right now at the Museum of American Finance in New York City. According to Bloomberg (a business news company) , the government only printed 42,000 of these bills in 1934 and never actually let people use them. If 42,000 sounds like a lot, there are billions of $1 bills being used today. Bloomberg says the government did let people use some other big bills — a $10,000, $5,000 and a $1,000. But the stopped printing these in 1969.
