Own a piece of currency that actually had value!
These Gold Certificates are not fiat currency like the paper money we use today. These notes were actually backed by gold coin, not just the government's pledge to redeem it. Gold Certificates, like circulating gold coins were withdrawn from circulation in 1933 as part of President Franklin Roosevelt's banking policies to counteract the effects of the Great Depression.
The front of this note features a central portrait of Michael Hillegas, 1st Treasurer of the United States. The back of the note is printed all in Gold. Although no longer redeemable for gold, they are still legal tender, and are popular notes with collectors! A nice Very Fine example. FR# 1173.
