Traditionally, the oft-used $1 bill had the highest circulation of all U.S. dollars, with over 12.7 billion in circulation to this day. But the $100 bill has slowly been creeping up over time, from being the third-most common after the $20 bill (as of 1999) to the second-most common as of 2009. But it took the top spot in 2017, with 14.2 billion $100 bills circulating as of 2019. Why the shift to bigger bucks? The Federal Reserve estimates that up to 80% of these bills are actually outside of the country, whether used to support other economies that are adopting the USD as an accepted (or even official) currency or simply by people who want to sock away cash for a rainy day. 10 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerLeave an answerCancel reply Featured image Select file Browse Click on image to update the captcha.
