The bust of Franklin featured on the obverse of the modern $100 bill from the Federal Reserve features a three-quarter profile based on a portrait of Franklin painted by Joseph Duplessis. The portrait depicts a seated figure and was made in 1778. Franklin has appeared on the $100 bill since 1914 when the modern $100 Federal Reserve Note was issued and was most recently modernized in 2009. The design element also includes the words of the Declaration of Independence in the lower-right field, with a quill pen and ink well, the method of writing used during Franklin’s lifetime.

In the modern era, the $100 bill is the only denomination of US currency with a design of a building that is not located in Washington D.C. While Franklin appeared on the $100 bill starting in 1914 when it debuted, Independence Hall has been on the reverse of the note since 1928.
