1914 100 Dollar Silver Franklin Proof 100th Anniversary Tribute Banknote
Celebrate 100 Years for the $100 Bill in 99.9% Pure Silver!
It's all about the Benjamins.
That slang for a $100 bill is easy to understand. Benjamin Franklin is pictured on every U.S. $100 bill, right? Yes, that's true—but it wasn't always so.
In 1860, a $100 bill had a bald eagle on it. Lincoln even appeared on the $100 in 1878 (although Abe's portrait eventually found its permanent home on the $5 bill.)
But in 1914, the U.S. Treasury printed the very first $100 bills to feature the portrait of our beloved Founding Father, Benjamin Franklin. Since then, every $100 bill issued has featured Franklin's image. This is no small honor. For the last 45 years, the $100 bill is the largest denomination U.S. currency issued by the government.
A Silver Banknote for a Diamond Anniversary
This year marks the 100th anniversary of the first $100 Franklin note. To honor this impressive milestone in American currency, GovMint.com has just released a spectacular one ounce 1914 $100 Silver Banknote Proof. Each gleaming silver proof is a stunning adaptation of the original intricately-engraved 1914 $100 bill.
