$16,688 if you include collectors denominations.

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.

wiki says:

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.

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).

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.
