The Last U.S. $500 Bill
Every bill has a story – especially this one! Back in 1934 when the last U.S. $500 note series was first issued, the average American did not have five hundred dollars to their name, let alone in their wallets. Remember the times – the Stock Market Crash, the Great Depression, the Dust Bowl – most ordinary people would rarely get to see a bill as large as $50, or $100, and certainly not $500! In the 1930s, these $500 bills would have been secured away in bank vaults. So notoriously safeguarded, these bills were rarely seen … until now.
Now through PCS Stamps & Coins, private collectors like you can acquire a dramatic presentation of one of the most fascinating bank notes ever with... The Last U.S. $500 Bill, elegantly showcased in a glass-topped Display Chest.
These Series 1934 $500 Federal Reserve Notes were lost to bank vaults until 30 years after their last issue…no longer serving as the facilitator of large-volume, bank-to-bank transactions, but between money-laundering criminals. The use of $500 bills to perform illegal transactions became so widespread that large-denomination notes were discontinued by order of the U.S. government. Most were redeemed and destroyed — making this the last U.S. $500 bill issued…and a collector’s most sought-after treasure. Now, they are all-but-impossible-to-find artifacts of a bygone age.
Each note is preserved in circulated, very fine condition. For an impressive presentation, your $500 bill comes in a richly finished wooden Display Chest, complete with lock and tasseled key — and a clear glass top to provide an eye-catching view of your note.
