The $100,000 Gold Certificate was never released
into general circulation and was only used in fiscal
channels. This note cannot be legally held by
currency note collectors.
If it were, the amount would have been $116,688
The highest circulated denomination is now $100.
So you probably got only $188.

they were effectively taken out of circulation, but are still deemed legal tender if a collector were to ever stupidly use it as cash (considering how much they are worth to collectors).
The $500 bill featured a portrait of William McKinley
The $1,000 bill featured a portrait of Grover Cleveland
The $5,000 bill featured a portrait of James Madison
The $10,000 bill featured a portrait of Salmon P. Chase
The $100,000 bill featured a portrait of Woodrow Wilson
Although they are still technically legal tender in the United States, high-denomination bills were last printed in 1945 and officially discontinued on July 14, 1969, by the Federal Reserve System.

each current US denomination
I'd read this as any denomination you could go to a bank and ask for. The $500 - $100,000 bills would not qualify. In fact, it's illegal to own a $100,000 bill, if I remember correctly.
