Gold Certificates were magnificently designed pieces of paper currency that represented real gold coinage. The large-size banknotes, like the ones issued in 1882, were the highest denomination banknotes in our nation's history and typically featured historical Americans on the obverse and a brilliant orange engraving on the reverse.
Gold Certificates, colorful and vivid, were originally created to represent actual gold coinage, giving the note's holder ownership to the corresponding amount of gold coins. With the reverse a brilliant golden orange, symbolic of the gold coins they represent, and an obverse that typically featured
the portrait of a significant American, most often a U.S. President, Gold Certificates are still among the most attractive of all currency ever printed by the U.S. Treasury.
During the Great Depression, the government officially
ended the practice of redeeming Gold Certificates for gold coins. It actually became illegal to possess the notes. Most of these magnificent banknotes mwere confiscated and destroyed.
Today, precious few original specimens of this delicate paper currency still exist. When one of these rare notes doappear at auction they often reach prices of several thousand dollars and, in some cases, have even surpassed the million dollar mark!
