    As there is no further condition given:

    101$+102$+103$—-109$+55$=1000$

    Its possible in EURO in some countries.

    €1000 = €500 + €200 + 5 x €50 + 2 x €20 + €10
    We could do this in British Pounds too, if you had a £200 which were issued from 1725 to 1928, but they stopped being legal tender in 1948.
    Denmark, Bulgaria, North Korea, South Africa and Bosnia also have 200-unit notes.
