US $500, $1000, $5000 and $10000 bills were last printed in 1945, but all carried the series dates 1934 or 1934-A.

You could still get one from a bank up till July, 1969. That year President Nixon issued an executive order suspending further distribution of high-value bills in an effort to combat organized crime.

The bills were never demonetized and are still legal to have or spend, but any that are redeemed at a bank are destroyed by the Treasury. They've effectively been out of circulation since the mid-1970s.
