The correct form is a "Cheque for $100".

Probably goes from implied construction "Cheque for (reception of) $100"

I will go for Cheque of $100 because it describes the identity of the cheque

Cheque for $100 could mean you can buy the cheque for $100 which doesnt describe the identity of the cheque
