Question: What’s the highest denomination bill ever printed by the U.S.?

Answer: The $100,000 bill is the highest note ever printed, with a portrait of Woodrow Wilson on the front. The bills were Gold Certificates and never allowed in public circulation, meant only for official transactions between Federal Reserve Banks. They’re still illegal to own, even by currency-note collectors. For notes in circulation, the $10,000 bill is the highest ever printed, with Lincoln’s Treasury Secretary Salmon P. Chase on the front.
