Upon issue in 1915, only one denomination that was planned was never released. That denomination was the $100 note. When the notes were redesigned and reformatted as small-sized notes in 1929, the $100 note was finally put into production.

Franklin was one of America’s earliest international diplomats and an influential Founding Father during the Revolution.
