What is the largest denomination of U.S. currency? I saw a fake $1 million bill the other day and it made me wonder.

The largest form of U.S. currency now in circulation is the $100 bill, according to the U.S. Department of the Treasury's Web site (www.ustreas.gov).

The largest denomination ever produced was the $100,000 Series 1934 Gold Certificate. Those notes, featuring a portrait of President Woodrow Wilson, were printed for less than a month and circulated only among Federal Reserve banks, not the general public.

Currency denominations of $500, $1,000, $5,000 and $10,000 were produced during World War II, but their distribution was halted in 1969.
