Among the 1914 Series Federal Reserve Notes issued for the first time that year, the $100 Federal Reserve Note bore the least resemblance to the modern notes now in production. Though all of the notes had unique reverse designs no longer in use on any denomination, many of the presidential portraits on the obverse were of the same style used today. The $100 Federal Reserve Note was a notable exception in both its obverse and reverse images. Provident Metals now offers Fine+ 1914 $100 Federal Reserve Notes for you to purchase online.


  • Arrives with an individual plastic currency sleeve!
  • 1st-ever issue of the $100 Federal Reserve Note!
  • One-of-a-kind obverse and reverse designs!
  • Issued a face value of $100 (USD) by the government of the United States.
  • The obverse depicts Benjamin Franklin.
  • On the reverse are allegories representing America, Peace, Plenty, Labor, and Commerce.
  • Please bear in mind the notes in this series were originally issued with red ink on the serial numbers and US Treasury seal before switching to blue ink. Buying multiples can result in matching notes for this feature.

When you purchase a 1914 $100 Federal Reserve Note in this listing, you receive a Fine+ note with a plastic currency sleeve. Notes in this condition typically showcase considerable signs of wear that included rounded corners, margin splits, and numerous fold lines.

Provident Metals cannot guarantee the ink color on the serial numbers and US Treasury seal of the note you receive. Red ink was used when the 1914 Series notes were first introduced, but blue ink was introduced shortly after and is far more common. The 1914 Series notes also feature seals from the individual Federal Reserve Bank branches that released the notes. Though all 12 banks collectively back Federal Reserve Notes, you will still potentially notice different seals on the note or notes you receive. As an example, 12-L represents the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco.


The obverse of 1914 $100 Federal Reserve Notes depicts Benjamin Franklin. One of the Founding Fathers of America and an influential early diplomat for America, Franklin is featured here in a right-profile portrait that is unlike the modern portrait of Franklin on the $100 note.


On the reverse of the 1914 $100 Federal Reserve Note is an entirely unique image that depicts five allegorical figures. The female allegory representing America sits at the center. She is flanked by female allegories representing Plenty on the left and Peace on the right. To the outer left is the male allegory for Labor and to the outer right is the male allegory for Commerce.


1914 Series notes featured portraits of Presidents Abraham Lincoln, Andrew Jackson, Grover Cleveland, and Ulysses S. Grant on the $5, $10, $20, and $50 denominations, respectively. These effigies are still featured on modern Federal Reserve Notes, with the exception of Cleveland who was replaced on the $20 by the President Jackson effigy from the 1914 $10 Note. Benjamin Franklins effigy is entirely unique in the 1914 Series, as are all of the reverse designs when compared to both the 1929 Series redesigns and the modern notes.
