Is There a 1000 Dollar Bill?

Yes, there is a 1000 dollar bill although very limited, and if you have one of these in hand, that’ great; you can use it as it is a legal tender. Several years ago, currency notes over 100 dollars were used mainly for the payment of bank transfers. However, in July 1969, the distribution of higher currency denominations including $1000 bills was suspended. Although, there may be a few still in circulation they are being destroyed by the Federal Reserve Banks when they receive them. For more information, visit the US Treasury’s website at
