Values of $100 1878 Silver Certificates

Price Guide for Rare Silver Certificates

Year:  1878

Denomination:  One Hundred Dollar Bank Note

Type:  Silver Certificate

Portrait:  James Monroe

$100 Bill Front Picture:

Value and History:   This might be our absolute favorite large size $100 bank note. Silver certificates were first issued by The United States in 1878. The one hundred dollar denomination comes in five varieties. You can determine the variety based on the payable location (New York, San Francisco, or Washington DC) and based on the counter signature. These are some of the few non-national bank notes that were actually hand signed by government officials. We would pay tens of thousands of dollars for any intact example.


We buy all of these $100 bank notes issued by The United States. The market for rare paper money is very active right now. If you were ever considering selling then now might be a good time to take a price quote. You can text pictures to 864-430-4020. You can also attach pictures to an email message.
