American paper money is not as artistic in the modern era as it once was. There was a time in American history when the money in your pocket was like a small work of art.

The United States issued the modern Federal Reserve Note for the first time in 1914. That initial series included the same denominations available today: $5, $10, $20, $50, and $100. On that very first $100 bill was a right-profile portrait of Benjamin Franklin, with allegorical figures on the reverse side of the note.
Though the 1918 Series of notes introduced denominations larger than $100, today the $100 bill is the largest denomination the Treasury permits for circulation. In 1969, the Treasury ended the printing of $500, $1,000, $5,000, and $10,000 bills, leaving the $100 notes as the largest. The modern visuals found on the $100 Federal Reserve Note and replicated on these silver notes were redesigned in 2009.
On the obverse of 5 Gram Silver $100 Benjamin Franklin Replica Notes is an image of the Founding Father. He is captured in a three-quarter profile with his shoulders turned to the right of the note slightly and his head facing forward. The modern design takes his portrait of the historic porthole design and takes up far more space in the design, with an offset print to the left side of the note. These silver notes even replicate one of the security stripes down the vertical center of the bill.
The reverse side of 5 Gram Silver Benjamin Franklin Replica Notes depicts the exterior of Independence Hall. One of the most important sites from American history, this building was the site of the signing of the Declaration of Independence by the Founding Fathers.
These 5 Gram Silver $100 Benjamin Franklin Replica Notes come with plastic currency sleeves for protection. Though these notes replicate the appearance of the $100 bill, these are not legal tender in the United States.
