From The United States Department of the Treasury's website: "As with our nation's coinage, the Secretary of the Treasury usually selects the designs shown on United States currency. Unless specified by an Act of Congress, the Secretary generally has the final approval. This is done with the advic…e of Bureau of Engraving and Printing (BEP) officials. In addition, the Commission on Fine Arts reviews all of the designs. The law prohibits portraits of living persons from appearing on Government Securities. Therefore, the portraits on our currency notes are of deceased persons whose places in history the American people know well. The basic face and back designs of all denominations of our paper currency in circulation today were selected in 1928, although they were modified to improve security against counterfeiting starting in 1996. A committee appointed to study such matters made those choices. The only exception is the reverse design of the one-dollar bill. Unfortunately, however, our records do not suggest why certain Presidents and statesmen were chosen for specific denominations." Note that these regulations do NOT require that only presidents appear on US bills; the only restriction is that no living person can be shown. In the past many other individuals including inventors, Native American leaders, cabinet members and even First Lady Martha Washington have been depicted. United States currency notes now in production bear the following portraits: . George Washington on the $1 bill . Thomas Jefferson on the $2 bill . Abraham Lincoln on the $5 bill . Alexander Hamilton on the $10 bill . Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill . Ulysses S. Grant on the $50 bill . Benjamin Franklin on the $100 bill There are also several denominations of currency notes that are no longer produced. These include: . William McKinley on the $500 bill . Grover Cleveland on the $1,000 bill . James Madison on the $5,000 bill . Salmon P. Chase on the $10,000 bill . Woodrow W. Wilson on the $100,000 note. Three of the above were never President of the US: . Benjamin Franklin was never President of The United States and his face is on the $100 bill. However, he was one of the "Founding Fathers", an Ambassador to France and a very significant figure in American history. . Alexander Hamilton was never President of The United States, but his face is on the $10 bill. He was the first Secretary of the Treasury. He was ineligible to be the President because he was born on the Caribbean island of Nevis. . Salmon P. Chase was never President of The United States, but he was a U.S. Senator, Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court and a Secretary of the Treasury. ( Full Answer )

Anthony (again, "sandwich") 2000-present, regular issue: Sacagawea (metal: manganese-brass) 2007-present, Presidential series: Each U.S. president's imageappears for 3 months. The series is expected to end around 2016,depending on how many former presidents are alive at that time.

Answer . For the 1934 series, President William McKinley is on the front of the $500 bill. The back has the number 500 surrounded by a scrollwork design. . For the 1918 series, Chief Justice John Marshall is on the front, and the back has a vignette of deSoto discovering the Mississippi in 1541….

Former U.S. President Thomas Jefferson is featured on the obverse of the note. The reverse of bills dated 1976 and later shows a somewhat modified version of Trumbull's painting of the signing of the Declaration of Independence. Older bills show a picture of Jefferson's home, Monticello.
Banks have not been permitted to distribute them since 1969. The US government issued $5,000 bills at four different points in history, but denominations over $100 were discontinued from general circulation in 1969. They were never officially withdrawn so the most recent Federal Reserve Note (2 issu…es, 1934) is still legal tender, but any that are turned in at a bank are sent back to the Treasury for destruction. 1840 Second Bank of the United States 1882 Gold Certificate (National Bank Notes and Treasury Notes) 1914 Federal Reserve Note, portrait of James Madison, National Stability era 1934 Federal Reserve Note, portrait of James Madison, World Standard, two versions issued ( Full Answer )

President Grover Cleveland is pictured on the 1000 dollar bill. He was our 22nd (1885-1889) and 24th President (1893-1897). That denomination was last printed in 1945, although the bills still had a "series date" of 1934. Other Denominations President William McKinley (1897- 1901) who became Presi…dent after winning over Cleveland, is on our $500 bill. James Madison (1809-1817) is on the $5,000 bill and Salmon P. Chase is on our $10,000 bill. Who is Salmon P. Chase? He was the U.S. Supreme Court Justice from 1864-1873. Distribution of bills larger than $100 was halted by President Nixon in 1969 as a way to make it more difficult for organized criminals to move large amounts of money undetected. Technically they're still legal to spend, but in general they're worth more than their face value to a collector. ( Full Answer )

While it's not Answers.com policy to say "use the Internet", that'sthe best approach in this case.

No bills larger than$100 have been printed since the 1940s and banks haven't beenallowed to distribute them since 1969. Other high denomination bills were $1000, $5000, and $10,000.

It depends on what you mean by dollar coin because there have been a lot of them. If you have a presidential dollar (it has a gold color, but contains no real gold) then it could be any president up to Lincoln (I don't believe they have minted Lincoln's coin quite yet as of this writing), if it is a… Native American woman, it would be Sacajawea, if it is one of the large dollars and a real person, that would be Dwight Eisenhower, a former US president. If you have a small dollar coin that is very similar in color and size to a quarter, that is Susan B Anthony. If you have an older US coin, it would be some personification of the goddess Liberty.

There never was a $million bill. The highest denomination was $100,000, and only were used from 1934 to 1940, mostly by the US government to pay bills. Other than that few years, the largest currency bill was $10,000. I believe that Woodrow Wilson's picture is on this one. There are still some ar…ound - owned mostly by collectors. The next lowest bill was the $5,000, then the $1,000, then the $500 bill, but for a long time, now, the largest denomination to be printed is the $100 bill with Ben Franklin's picture on it. Surprisingly, there are still around 165,000 $1000 bills existing. ( Full Answer )
