Series 1953 through 1953-C of our choice and limited to available inventory.
Silver Certificates were adopted for circulation in this denomination beginning in 1886. The $5 denomination remained when we switched over to small size notes in 1928 and continued until the early 1960s when this type was discontinued. The $5 Federal Reserve Note then became the only type circulating.
Series 1953 $5 Silver Certificates were printed in large numbers, and they saw heavy usage until the type was discontinued in the 1960s. These $5 Silvers are popular with collectors, and these are getting harder to find in better grades like this. Although they are still legal tender, their blue seals and serial numbers make them great collector items.
