The 100-dollar bill is considered the most popular in the world, and also has the largest number of copies in circulation, according to El País. Only during the last two decades, the presence of the 100-dollar bill has soared 333%.
Interestingly, much of the circulation is not in the US, where the dollar lives. Almost 80% of the 100-dollar bills are outside the country, up from 30% in 1980.
What are the reasons for this growth? Apparently there are two things to consider: distrust of the local currency – while the dollar is seen as a safe asset – as well as illicit activities.
I have never seen or used this bill and for me, it is strange that it circulates more out of the USA than inside the country.
Do use this 100 dollar bill?
