Many of the $100,000 US 1934 Gold Certificate notes collectors asked me about Original & Fake US 100,000 dollars bill. I already shared them in my blog before but readers still asked about it. To anyone who still don't know, The $100,000 bill was released only as a Gold Certificate in the series of 1934. You can see an image of 28th President of the United States, Thomas Woodrow Wilson on the obverse. On the reverse you can see "100,000" denomination printed in several places in orange or gold colored ink.
According to US Federal reserve, only 42,000 US$100,000 1934 Gold Certificate notes were printed. They were used only for transactions between the Federal Reserve and the Treasury Department. These notes were never issued for public circulation. When the Government stopped using them, most were destroyed. Only three are known to have survived. One is housed at the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco, one at the Bureau of Engraving and Printing, and one at the Smithsonian Institute.
Fake 1934 $100,000 Dollars
I already shared about this in this post; 1934 $100,000 Dollars scam. The bill that can be found in Malaysia, Indonesia and Philippines are single notes in brown, pink and gold color. Since this notes is so rare, if you can see the seller offer a lot of these notes, do you think that this is original? If that seller have too many of these notes to offer, you can already smell the scam. A single sheet of this note worth at least a million dollar and they're selling you for a hundred dollar, is that make sense? They're also rumours in Malaysia that officer from Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM) are also searching for these notes. They're maybe officer from Bank Negara but not everyone from Bank Negara has the knowledge about currency. They're a lot of department in Bank Negara Malaysia. That so called officer might be just a Office Boy in Bank Negara. I also heard about rumours that some of their people are also victim of currency scam.
Original 1934 $100,000 Dollars
I already shared about the original 100,000 dollars bill in this post; US 100,000 dollars bill. Kevin Brown, manager in the marketing division of the U.S. Treasury Department's Bureau of Engraving and Printing show a sheets of US $100,000 bill at Boston World's Fair of Money started from 10 August 2010 until 14 August 2010. As you can see, the colour of the bills are white and it came in a sheet of uncut notes. Since they were used only for transactions between the Federal Reserve and the Treasury Department, the amount of sheet should be greater then 1 million dollars. In the notes shown in here, it displayed the same serial number for each notes but I am not sure about the serial number since they're no documentation about it in any website. This might be only a exact replica of the notes since people can touch them but this is what the original bill should look like.
