The Big Bills

As a Boy Scout, Greg learned the value of collecting rare items. Coins are his favorite. Greg writes about coins and other collectibles...

A Collectors Dream!

I am about to show you paper money that our government doesn't make anymore.Some of these are worth a lot of money.Maybe someday,I will make enough to be able to invest in one of these for my collection.

Scroll down and learn a little more about United States paper money.

All small size $500, $1,000, $5,000 and $10,000 notes were printed only in the 1928, 1934, 1934 A, 1934 B, or 1934 C series. Although all these High Denomination notes are rare, the 34 B and 34 C series are extremely rare with none having been seen. The 1928 series were "Redeemable in Gold on demand." The 1934 A, B and C series were the last High Denomination notes printed in 1945. On July 14, 1969 the Department of the Treasury and the Federal Reserve system announced that due to lack of use, the High Denomination notes would be discontinued immediately. All High Denomination notes that are turned into banks are forwarded to the Federal Reserve and destroyed.


These collector bills range in price.The $500 bill at the top sells for $1675.

The $1000 bill goes for $4550.

The $5000 bill sold,so I could not tell what it sold for,but I would have given $45,000 if I had it.

The $10,000 bill is for sale.I will leave the link if you would like to purchase it.

I would just love to have that in my collection!

Gold Certificates

If you have gold, you have money. At one time we had gold certificates.These were redeemable in gold.

I will leave you with some pictures of gold certificates. A MUST HAVE for any serious money collector!

The coin-collecting and paper money collecting hobbies can be a great investment!

Hope you Enjoyed

Hope you all enjoyed this hub--The Big Bills--Check back, I will be doing more hubs on money.

      It is very interesting to know that at one point the government backed currency with gold. Thanks for the helpful information and insights.

      Fascinating, Froggy. I agree with compu-smart, in that I prefer the appearance of the dollars...perhaps because I'd like these, even if they are losing value against the pound sterling and Euros. Great article. Thumbs up!
