10.000$

The second largest denomination US currency. The banknote type is a sample of 1934, the last circulation, the so-called gold certificate (a type of security issued by the US Treasury that certified the ownership of gold deposited in the bank by its owner).

In the banknote central part, there’s a portrait of Salmon Portland Chase—head of the Ministry of Finance during the reign of President Abraham Lincoln. Later, Chase became the US Treasury first secretary, while afterwards—head of the Supreme Court of the United States. He was the first to order placing on American money an inscription: “In God We Trust.” In 1864, the inscription was minted on coins worth 2 cents. On paper dollars, it appeared in 1957, while since 1963, it has been used continuously. The first banknote worth $1, issued in 1863, contained not the image of George Washington, but Chase’s portrait.
