On the reverse side of $100 Legal Tender Notes, there is a vignette of Independence Hall. This historic civic building opened in 1753. It is notable for being the location where both the Declaration of Independence and the US Constitution were developed and adopted. In a curved numerical style, the note’s denomination is shown in each corner. Also shown are the words The United States of America, In God We Trust, One Hundred Dollars.
The one-hundred-dollar bill debuted in the United States in 1862. In 1914, the first Federal Reserve Note was issued. That same year, Benjamin Franklin appeared on the note and has been present on this denomination ever since. In 1929, the small-size $100 bill was first issued as part of the 1928 Series. This design featured Franklin and Independence Hall and became the basis for all future $100 notes.
