The (One Hundred) 100 dollar bill features BENJAMIN FRANKLIN - U.S. statesman, diplomat and inventor.

On its back, the note displays an image of the Independence Hall.

Also known as "Benjamins" and "C-Notes" these American bills are the highest amount in regular circulation in the country and one of two not featuring a United States president, (the other one is a ten dollar bill that depicts Alexander Hamilton).

Other nicknames include: Benjis, Franklin, Frank, Benjy, Ben, or Benny. Big-Faced Hundred, Hundie, Hunski, and Hundo, very popular with poker players. 100 Clams, 100 Bones, C-B, from the Roman numeral C for 100, and B for Bill. Charlie, from the Radio alphabet letter C. Big One, refers to the largest denomination currently in use.

The first one hundred dollar bill, created in 1862, had a picture of the bald eagle on it.


Here's the new 100 dollar bill with new security features and some major changes in the bill's design. In circulation in 2013.

New 100 Dollar bill

This is the first major redesign of the bill since 1996, adding a number of anti-counterfeiting technology.

The most important new security feature is the 3-D Security Ribbon that runs along the right side of Franklin's face. The ribbon is marked with an image of the liberty bell and the number 100. As the bill is moved back and forth, the 100s change to liberty bells and vice versa. The images also appear to move.

Another great security feature is the Bell in the Inkwell, which changes color from copper to green when the bill is moved.

One day, a 1 dollar bill and a hundred dollar bill got folded together and began talking about their life experiences.

The one hundred dollar bill began to brag: "I've had a great life," he said. "I have been to all the big hotels, Donald Trump himself used me at his casino, I've been in the wallets of Fortune 500 board members, I've flown from one end of the country to the other in first class! I have even been in the wallet of 2 United States Presidents, and once when Princess Diana visited the USA, she used me to buy a packet of gum."

In awe, the dollar humbly responded, "Gee, nothing like that has ever happened to me.... But I've been to church a lot!"
