The United States one hundred-dollar bill ($100) is a denomination of United States currency. U.S. statesman, inventor and diplomat Benjamin Franklin is currently featured on the obverse of the bill. On the reverse of the banknote is an image of Independence Hall. The time on the clock according to the U.S. Bureau of Engraving and Printing, shows approximately 4:10. (The numeral 4 on the clock face is "IV", while the real Independence Hall has "IIII". (See Roman numerals on clocks.) The bill is one of two denominations that does not feature a President of the United States; the other is the $10 bill, featuring Alexander Hamilton. The $100 bill is the largest denomination that has been printed after July 13, 1969, when the denominations of $500, $1,000, $5,000, and $10,000 were retired. The Bureau of Engraving and Printing says the average life of a $100 bill in circulation is 89 months (7 years) before it is replaced due to wear and tear.
The bills are also commonly referred to as "Benjamins", in reference to the use of Benjamin Franklin's portrait on the denomination, or "C-Notes", based on the Roman numeral for 100.
Approximately 29% of all notes produced in 2009 were $100 bills. One hundred hundred-dollar bills are delivered by Federal Reserve Banks in mustard-coloured straps ($10,000).
