James Madison, Jr. (March 16, 1751 – June 28, 1836) was an American statesman, political theorist and the fourth President of the United States (1809–1817). He is hailed as the "Father of the Constitution" for being instrumental in the drafting of the United States Constitution and as the key champion and author of the United States Bill of Rights. He served as a politician much of his adult life.


The five thousand dollar bill featuring a portrait of James Madison was printed for the 1928 and 1934 series.  These notes are scarce and it is currently thought that there are no more than 342 that have escaped destruction by the Bureau of Engraving and Printing.
1934 $5000 bills were printed for all twelve Federal Reserves banks except for Minneapolis.  There were just over 51,000 1934 $5000 Federal Reserve notes printed.  We currently know that around one hundred of those have not been redeemed.  As with most high denomination notes, those that have survived tend to be mostly available in about uncirculated grades or higher.
$5000 Bill Star Notes:  Star notes were not printed for five thousand dollar bills in 1928 or 1934.
