In 1816, President James Madison authorized the establishment of the Second Bank of the United States. At the time, private banks were printing too much money, causing high inflation rates and creating the need for another state-run bank. A $100 bill from the Second Bank of the United States is available in the upcoming online currency event, presented by Heritage Auctions. The bill is decorated with a bald eagle, a shield, and a ship in the harbor.
Collectors will also find a $100 bill from New York’s Corn Exchange Bank among the auction’s lots. Decorating the bill are the personifications of agriculture, justice, and liberty standing in conversation. The Corn Exchange Bank was founded in 1853 and eventually merged with the Chemical Bank to form the Chemical Corn Exchange Bank. A note from the Chemical Bank is also one of the auction’s highlighted lots. The bill has a brick-red color and is printed with several images, including a family and two dogs playing.
