The U.S. hundred dollar bill ($100) is a denomination of United States currency. U.S. statesman, inventor, and diplomat Benjamin Franklin is currently featured on the front side of the bill, while Independence Hall is featured on the reverse side. It is the largest denomination that has been in circulation since 1946.
One-hundred dollar bills are delivered by Federal Reserve Banks in mustard-colored straps.
The $100 bill is sometimes nicknamed a C-note, from the Roman numeral and/or the first letter of the word century, although this usage is far less common today than it was in the early 20th century. It is also sometimes called a Benjamin because of the portrait.
