Treasury or Coin Notes (Large Size)
Treasury or Coin Notes were backed by the metallic reserves held in the vaults of the United States government. These notes are very attractive, especially the intricate designs on the reverses of the 1890 series. The engraver's art reached a pinnacle of success when these notes were engraved. This series includes some of the most beautiful and important pieces of United States currency ever printed, and also the most valuable with the series 1890 $1000 Treasury Note. A unique example in collector hands was auctioned in January of 2014 by Heritage for over $3 million dollars!
For your convenience, all of our notes are listed in Friedberg number order.
