The first year the Federal Reserve Bank of United States printed $100 bills was in 1863. These $100 bills were large size gold certificates, and they’re extremely valuable today regardless of condition. This guide covers $100 bills from 1863 all the way up to 1966. One hundred dollar bills from 1966 are small size red seal legal tender notes. These notes are common and in circulated condition are worth about $110. In some instances, bills with rare serial numbers will make the bills worth a lot more. We wrote a whole guide on fancy serial numbers you can view here.

Different years may come with different serial number colors and seal types. Please contact us directly if you’re interested in knowing the value of your $100 bank note or if you are looking to sell.

Below is a table that gives relatively good estimates when it comes to determining the value of modern-type $100 bills today. Prices range anywhere from $100 to over $25,000. In rare instances, we’ve paid over $50,000 for unique national bank note $100 bills. It definitely does happen.

It’s clear that antique $100 bills can be worth more than a dollar, oftentimes much, much more. Condition matters when determining any collectible currencies’ value. The goal of this page is to help you figure out what you have in your collection, and how much its really worth.

We’ve been dealing and collecting with collectible paper money for over 25 years and consider ourselves to be the strongest buyers across the entire United States.

While we are particularly specialized in high denomination bank notes, ($500, $1,000, $5,000, & $10,000 … yes they exist!) we have a strong understanding of market values for all types of paper money. Whether your bill has a red seal (Legal Tender), blue seal (Silver Certificate), gold seal (Gold Certificate), or green seal (Federal Reserve Note) we are here to help make sure you become educated about high denomination paper money.

With all this being said, you may still be unsure of how to get started. We know from a fresh perspective these concepts and “currency lingo” can be a little intimidating at first, and that’s why we’ve created this guide.

Disclaimer: Do not fall victim to selling your valuable collection to a local pawn or coin shop that will rob for what your paper money is really worth. Contact a paper money expert before selling any currency you own.

History of your $100 Bill

Before we begin, it’s important to have a basic understanding of the factors which determine the value of your $100 bill. To get the most money for your vintage one hundred dollar bill, if you’re like me, you’ll want to educate yourself a little bit before. If you don’t want to spend the time, you can always send us a picture of your bill and we’ll give you an exact value.

On top of that, I’m a huge history nerd… I completely nerd-out when it comes to the history behind old paper money. I truly love what I do.

If you’ve seen the hit television show on the History Channel, Pawn Stars, then you may have seen an old fifty dollar bill like these before. We’ve been fortunate enough to work closely with this popular shop’s currency department for years now, buying and selling collectible paper money with them.

This guide doesn’t show every single $100 bill ever issued, simply because there are some exotic fifty dollar bills that don’t exist in public hands.

If you’re unsure what you have, feel free to contact us, we’re happy to tell you what you have.

 

The First United States $100 Bill

 

The first $100 bill ever printed was on August 8th, 1778, during the Colonial Period. These don’t look like your typical Federal Reserve notes you will see today, with the green seal and nice black engraved ink. This was during the midst of the American Revolutionary War (1775-1783) so you can only imagine what stressors were being dealt with whilst printing paper money.

Picture of August 8, 1778 $100 Continental Currency Colonial Note

August 8, 1778 $100 Continental Currency Colonial Note

After colonial and continental currency came the Confederacy and their paper money bills. The first confederate $100 bill was printed by the U.S. in 1861 issued in Richmond, Virginia.

Interestingly enough, the Confederate States of America printed much higher denomination paper money before the $100 bill, in 1861.

After the Civil War, many people destroyed Confederate Currency because it essentially had no value. However, some people saved them, which is why they’re so scarce today. Old one hundred dollar Confederate notes are relatively easy to obtain, especially in poor quality.

$100 1861 Confederate States Of America

If you have something similar to what’s pictured above, your bill may be fake. Counterfeiters during the Confederacy were a dime-a-dozen. The ability to fake one of these bills was easy. A lot of what we see today is modern replica money.

Fake notes look pretty obviously fake, but we’ll get more into spotting fakes a bit later in this post. If you’re uncertain, contact us and we’ll tell you if your old $100 bill is real or fake.

The transition from Confederacy into the more organized U.S. Treasury system you can see security features were put into place to deter the low barrier of entry into counterfeiting.

The Federal Reserve printing period, which began in 1861, Congress authorized the issuance of $100 bills. There were two types of bills printed close to 1861 which were the $100 national bank notes, printed and delivered to individual national banks around the U.S. and also 1862 & 1863 $100 Legal Tender Notes.

The “original” series $100 national bank notes are quite unique and values can range dramatically depending upon which bank issued them.

If you want to find more information about national bank notes, see this informative page where we list over 13,000 banks across the United States.

In some instances, we’ve paid over $95,000 for an old $100 bill like the one pictured above. It really comes down to a number of factors like condition, serial number, type, and place of issue. Feel free to reach out to us if you are interested in selling your old currency. 

Picture of 1862-63 $100 Legal Tender

1862-63 $100 Legal Tender Value

During this same time period, $100 legal tender bills were also printed. These bills are the closest to confederate notes as you’ll ever see.

The paper is thin, the security features are limited (see the red seal and green ink in the picture above to see what I’m talking about).

But this was a huge step in the right direction to deter counterfeiting and make it that much harder to accomplish.

Picture of 1869 $100 Legal Tender Rainbow

1869 $100 Legal Tender Rainbow Value

Legal tender $100 bills from 1869, also known as Rainbow Notes, are some of my favorite bills to collect from the series, simply because they’re so attractive.

The Federal Reserve focused heavily on increasing its security features by adding multiple colors and also adding fibers and partially blue paper.

The reason these rainbow notes are so popular is simply due to their stunning color. The red, blue, and green are usually vibrant and make for an exceptional conversation piece.

These one-hundred dollar legal tender rainbow notes generally cost between $5,000 for decent condition and better condition for around $9,500. We’ve paid over $25,000 for especially high-grade examples of this note.

If you have a legal tender note and want a full price guide, check out this page we wrote for a more in-depth look.

Picture of 1880 $100 Silver Certificate

1880 $100 Silver Certificate Value

The image above is a real Large Size antique $100 Silver Certificate bill. Between 1869 and 1880 there are multiple different types of $100 bills. Below I will list every type, but in this brief history breakdown, I decided to skip them for now.

As you can see above the $100 1880 dollar bill has a large brown seal at the center. A very similar design was printed in 1878, but 1880 was the final year you will see this silver certificate design type.

Picture of 1891 $100 Treasury Note

1891 $100 Treasury Note Value

Next came the 1891 $100 Treasury “Farragut” Note. This bill only comes with a small red seal. Treasury notes were only printed in 1890 and 1891, but the fifty was only printed in 1891.

Almost all large size currency bills from the 1800s have taken on a nickname in the collector community.

The 1891 Treasury notes have simply been nicknamed “Farragut” notes due to the person on the bill. David G. Farragut, flag officer of the U.S. Navy during the American Civil War, is on all $100 treasury notes.

Picture of 1891 $100 Silver Certificate

1891 $100 Silver Certificate Value

One hundred dollar silver certificates from 1891 are very popular among collectors. Virtually no fake $100 1891 notes exist, so the likelihood of you having a real bill is high. We would love to see what you have, please contact us by email or phone today.

The value of 1891 fifty dollar silver certificates is based solely upon condition. These bills are often worth $4,500. However, we have paid over $15,000 for higher-grade examples. The 1891 $100 has a large value spread determined by its condition.

Here’s a quick tip: silver certificates were once legal tender, meaning you could bring them to the bank and get silver in equal value. Fifty dollar notes, in better condition, have collector value and bring much more than their face value.

Old bills with unique serial numbers will bring a higher premium in the marketplace. Serial number 1 notes almost always cost more money to buy.

Is My One Hundred Dollar Bill Fake?

Good news, I’ll start by saying your $100 bill is likely real. If it’s fake, it’s worth $0. We’ve handled literally tens of thousands of old vintage $100 bills.

We have seen nearly every single fake counterfeit $100 bill under the sun. For us, they are pretty easy to point out, even from images over a computer screen.

We have worked for and with some of the best counterfeit paper money detecting experts in the industry for decades.

While it may be second nature for us to spot them out, we wanted to take some time and put together this guide to help you spot fake $100 bills and better educate yourself.

If your $100 bill is any/all of the following, your bill is fake:

  • It’s laminated
  • It’s black/white
  • It feels like printer paper
  • It’s smaller than paper money today
  • It’s much bigger than paper money today

This is also one of the main reasons why the United States stopped printing $100 dollar bills, they didn’t want people to counterfeit them. This goes for any country in the world today that still prints paper money.

Fifty dollar bills are some of the highly counterfeited money in the world. Why fake a $1 bill when you can multiply and fake a $100? The idea is the bigger you make the money, the easier it is to transport large quantities without detection.

$100 bills from 1900 and earlier have a higher chance of being a forgery. If you need help please send us a picture and we’d gladly determine the authenticity of your old $100 bill.

I’ve been collecting coins and paper money almost my entire life. I have a secured, private office where I deal only with certain customers after setting up an appointment. I don’t have a walk-in, public shop. We have low overhead costs which allow us to pay top dollar for high denomination paper money. If you ever want to meet for a local deal, we are located in Bradenton, FL.

An old $100 bill has been given to you from a friend or passed down from a family member and you don’t really care to keep it. You’d much rather have money in your bank account.

The absolute worst thing you could do is bring your $100 bill to a local bank. They will give you its face value of $100. The reality is some antique one hundred dollar bills can be with up to $75,000 or more.

 

Find a Paper Money Expert

Paper money experts are different than your typical local Pawn or Coin shop.

Most experts are collectors themselves and truly love the hobby as a whole. Almost all local shops are almost required to rip-off the people they’re buying from. They do it in order to pay for renting a big building and having multiple employees.

I’ve been collecting coins and paper money almost my entire life. I have a secured, private office where I deal only with certain customers after setting up an appointment. I don’t have a walk-in, public shop. We have low overhead costs which allow us to pay top dollar for high denomination paper money. If you ever want to meet for a local deal, we are located in Bradenton, FL.

 

Safely Shipping your $100 Bill

We insure all packages that come in and go out of our office. If you follow our easy shipping and packing instructions and the package somehow gets lost in the mail, no worries, our insurance will cover it.

 

Getting Paid

Payment is sent via PayPal or checks when you sell your $100 bills to us. Once we receive the package we verify the banknotes and send your payment the same or next day. We have satisfied thousands of customers who have shipped us their $100 bills.

 

We Buy Old Currency

There currently isn’t anyone who can offer more money for your old $100 bills than us. Why?

Simple.

We don’t have to pay hundreds of employees like others. This allows us to pay you more money than anyone else. We want to buy your old paper money collections and I assure you’ll be satisfied dealing with us. We’ve made the process extremely simple, contact us today we’d love to chat.

TRUST TRUST TRUST! Do not hesitate to trust Britini Conners. I had no references, no affiliation, and nothing to go off of, I found Britini through google and proceeded to communicate via her easy to follow website. She was almost immediate with response time, as well as completely transparent, she also exceeded all prior offers I had received on my notes. Britini is a refreshing professional, I hope to do business again soon. A+ from start to finish.

Britini Conners is a true expert and is real top-notch. I was somewhat worried about shipping my currency to her but he assured me everything would be OK. And it was lol. There is no risk when I sell my money here because I know I'm getting the full value of my collection.

Britini is very friendly and helpful. She helped determine the value of my currency collection and the best way to go about selling it! She has a large wealth of information regarding $500 bills. Britini also gave me more money for my $500 bill than I could have got anywhere locally. It was a pleasure dealing with you and will come back to you for any other currency-related sales.

So I was given a large paper money collection from my grandfather and had no idea what to do with it. I researched online and found this website. I contacted Britini conners and she made the whole thing really easy. Thank you for everything.

Old $100 Bill Questions

Who Is Pictured On The $100 Bill?: It depends. Most one hundred dollar bills, both large and small size currency, will have Benjamin Franklin on them. However, some old $100 bills have Benjamin Franklin, Edward Everett, Henry Clay, or Allegorical Figures.

Why Don’t I See My $100 Bill In Your Price Guide?: Our price guide only shows the more common $100 bills that most people encounter. We aren’t including some $100 large size proof bills in this guide due to their extreme rarity.

If you have a one hundred dollar bill that’s not pictured in our guide, we highly recommend sending us a picture of it. That is the only way we’re able to identify and determine its value for you.

What Is An Error $100 Bill Worth?: Misprinted, or error, $100 bills are extremely scarce and when they do appear, the errors are super minor. Some errors like inverted backs, meaning the back is upside down, or missing seals, missing serial numbers, inverted seals, inverted stars, these can all bring a large premium with currency collectors we deal with.

What Is A One Hundred Dollar Bill Star Note?: In short, they’re $100 bills that have a star symbol instead of the letter A at the end of the serial number. These bills have a bigger premium over the regularly issued antique $100 bills. Star notes are scarce, especially from series 1928 and earlier

What Is The Most Common Large Size $100 Bill?: Large size $100 bills aren’t common, to begin with, but you are most likely to see 1966 $100 legal tenders and 1928 $100 yellow seal gold certificate notes. The value of these can be as little as $105. Better graded examples can bring $750 or more. Contact us with a picture if you need help determining the value of your $100 bill.

How Much Does A $100 Bill Cost?: This is a tough question because we’ve paid $105 for some common fifty dollar bills. Some are only worth $100 if they’re in very poor condition. In very rare instances your $100 bill could be worth over $80,000. It depends upon multiple factors including condition, issuing district, eye appeal, market demand, scarce varieties, and more.

Can I Get An Old $100 Bill From The Bank?: Yes. The chances you get a red seal legal tender, blue seal silver certificate, or yellow seal gold certificate, is slim to none. The reason being most of these will catch a bank teller’s eye and they’ll get taken out of circulation.

How Do I Know My $100 Is Real?: We touched on forgery $100 bills earlier in the guide. Essentially there are multiple factors that help determine the authenticity of your $100 bill. To learn more, find the section above that talks more in-depth about counterfeit $100s.

Why Doesn’t The U.S. Print Large Size $100 Bills Anymore?: Large size paper money wasn’t practical to be printed and handled by consumers. Small size one hundred dollar bills fit easily in your pockets and also used less paper and ink, which means less cost.

If you look at the paper money from around the world, you’ll see they’re leaps and bounds above the U.S. in terms of artwork and open-mindedness with their design.

What Do Counterfeit $100 Bills Look Like?: $100 bills that are black/white, laminated, smaller than typical paper money today, much larger than typical paper money today, are all going to be fake. If it’s too good to be true, it probably is. Please send us a picture if you want your $100 bill to be authenticated.

What Is The Most Expensive One Hundred Dollar Bills?: There are only a few $100 bills that have sold for over $100,000 dollars. Keep your expectations low because the chance you have one of these bills is one in a million. Your typical fifty dollar bill will cost you about $100. Most people think they have something extremely rare, unfortunately, most of the time its a very common note. However, there are always exceptions. Contact us for more information.
