If Darwin was an American, he might have made it onto a Postage Stamp (like he has several times in the UK)... the US tries to keep general circulation coins and paper simple (and even the Commemorative coins are generally some national-specific significance: President, battles, national event, etc).
Also every face on American money is of some politically important figure. Benjamin Franklin is not on the $100 in his capacity as a scientist. That's incidental. He's there as one of the "Founding Fathers".
