The $100,000 banknote?

The $100,000 Gold Certificate is the highest denomination banknote ever printed by the Bureau of Engraving and Printing.  The notes, which were printed between December 1934 and January 1935, were intended to be used in transactions among the Federal Reserve Banks and were never circulated among the general public.  The portrait featured on this largest denomination U.S. banknote is that of Woodrow Wilson.
