Today, the Legal Tender Note is recognized as the longest issued type of currency in US history. Also known as United States Notes, or greenbacks, this currency replaced the Demand Note in 1862 and was printed up until 1971. For their first 67 years, these notes were issued in large-sized formats with extremely intricate designs. Then in 1929, the new design in a smaller size was released in the $1, $2, and $5 denominations. In 1966, the $100 denomination featuring Benjamin Franklin was released. Right now, you can get 1966 $100 Legal Tender Notes in Gem Uncirculated condition online from Provident Metals.

Benjamin Franklin is depicted on the obverse of $100 Legal Tender Notes. Franklin first appeared on the $100 bill in 1914 when notes were still printed in their large-size format. He remains on this denomination of currency to this day. The serial number is shown twice in red ink, once on the lower left side and again on the upper right side. Also shown is the red Treasury seal, stamped across the words One Hundred.


A rendering of Independence Hall is found on the reverse of 1966 Legal Tender Notes. In all four corners of the note, you will find the denomination listed numerically. Also shown are the following notations: The United States of America, In God We Trust, One Hundred Dollars.


In 1966, the Federal Reserve issued the countrys first and only $100 legal tender note. It is also the first note to showcase the updated Treasury seal, which included words in English rather than Latin. The main reason this note was issued was because of a new law specifying a precise dollar amount of Legal Tender notes that remain in circulation.
