Does Rome still use 1000 dollar bills for currency?

Rome never used 1000 dollar bills for currency, seeing as how the Dollar is a particularly US denomination (as well as Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and a few others). Italy, where Rome is, uses the EURO.


Rome, Italy has never used any "dollar" bills as currency; the euro is the official Italian currency.

Bills of $1,000 US Dollar denominations are no longer in circulation; the largest US banknote is $100. Distribution of high-denomination bills ended in 1969. This was intended to make it inconvenient for drug traffickers and other criminals to carry large amounts of cash.

Are Old Russian banknotes worth anything?

Most banknotes have some value, depending on the age of the note, the denomination and the condition it is in. Old notes are not necessarily worth large amounts of money just because they are old - it depends on the number of notes issued at the time and how many survive.

A 1961 Russian 100 Ruble note in mint condition would be worth $10, whilst a good used one would be worth $3. The same denomination from 2001 would be worth $30 - the same price for one dated 1912.
