- Product description
Issued by the U.S. Treasury from 1865 to 1928, gold certificates were a paper currency which could be exchanged for an equivalent amount of gold. The $500 Gold Certificate was the most popular denomination of these valuable pieces of paper, thanks in most part to the great man featured on the banknote: President Abraham Lincoln. In 1933, the private ownership of gold was banned and most $500 Gold Certificates were confiscated. Today, fewer than fifty of the 1922 $500 Gold Certificates are known to exist.
