What does 100 cents mean?
The phrase "100 cents on the dollar" means 100%, or 'at full value'. The banks refused to accept a reduced value (payment) to take them on. For instance, in a bankruptcy, creditors may be court ordered to accept payment of 50 cents on the dollar, or half the original debt, to settle it.
