George Washington was the first president of the United States and appears on the U.S. $1 bill. Abraham Lincoln, the 16th president of the United States, appears on the $5 bill, while 7th president Andrew Jackson is on the $20 bill. Ulysses S. Grant, the 18th president of the U.S. and a notable general during the Civil War, appears on the $50 bill.

Although not in wide circulation, $500 bills bear the image of the 25th president of the United States, William McKinley, and the rare $1,000 bill bears the image of Grover Cleveland, who served as the 22nd president of the U.S. The $100,000 bill features Woodrow Wilson, 28th president of the U.S., although the bill was never circulated.

Currency featuring other notable Americans who were not presidents includes the $2 bill, which is adorned with the image of Thomas Jefferson, an author of the Declaration of Independence; Alexander Hamilton, the first U.S. Secretary of the Treasury, appears on the $10 bill, although the first $10 bill featured a portrait of Abraham Lincoln; Benjamin Franklin, one of the founding fathers, is on the $100 bill.
