Currency Collectors will Appreciate the Fine Quality with this Currency
Quality diminishes over time with currency because it is more fragile than coins and bullion. As with bullion, condition is a determining factor to determine quality and value. Where this currency stands is among one of the finest in regard to existing grade and condition. This PCGS rated currency puts this year and denomination as one of the best conditions in existence today. Collectors and investors will appreciate this addition to their collection of numismatic items. There is much history to accompany this currency and the value is something to behold.
Denomination Stands as one of the Most Unique Historically
$500 denomination was primarily used as a note between financial institutions for larger purchases such as a down payment on a house or making one-time larger purchases. They were rarely circulated, which helps their value grow even more. The currency was one of the hardest to get their hands on because the public did not see them as much as the money handlers. The $500 Gold Certificate was created and distributed once, but was the last of its kind to be produced before the infamous 1933 recall of Gold coins by President Roosevelt.
