Star notes are used by the BEP (Bureau of Engraving and Printing) to replace misprinted/damaged currency before it goes into circulation. These replacement notes are printed just like normal notes, except there is a star printed in the serial number.
The Gold certificate was used from 1863 to 1933 in the United States as a form of paper currency. A Gold certificate in general is a certificate of ownership that Gold owners hold instead of storing the actual Gold.
Gold Certificates are considered by many collectors to be the MVP (Most Valuable Paper) of banknote collecting. Especially since the Gold recall of 1933, where most notes were taken out of circulation and destroyed, making the notes highly valuable.
Although Gold certificates are no longer produced and are not redeemable in Gold, they still maintain their legal tender status. You may redeem the notes you have through the Treasury Department or any financial institution. The redemption, however, will be at the face value on the note.
