The Educational Series was a popular release of Silver Certificates in the United States in the late-19th century. The release of these Silver Certificates came at a time when the United States Mint and the Treasury Department sought to develop monetary designs that sought to put small works of art in the pockets of Americans on the fields of currency. Provident Metals now offers $1 Educational Legal Tender Notes to you for purchase online.

When you purchase $1 Educational Legal Tender Notes in this Provident Metals listing, you receive an authentic legal tender $1 US bill that has been enhanced with high-definition graphics. Picked from sealed, wrapped packs of crisp, clean, uncirculated $1 bills, these modern Federal Reserve Notes feature an enhanced image of the 1896 $1 Silver Certificate design known as History Instructs Youth. The $1 bills are housed in blue, bi-fold presentation folios with an included Certificate of Authenticity.


The obverse side of $1 Educational Legal Tender Notes features a replicated image of the 1896 $1 Silver Certificate. The image depicts History as she instructs youth. In the design, you can see history as she lounges with a youth nearby extending her hand out to make a point. In the design field, you can see across the Potomac River to Washington D.C. where the Washington Monument and the US Capitol Building are visible in the distance.


On the reverse field of $1 Educational Legal Tender Note is a depiction of the Great Seal of the United States. The seal is featured alongside the all-seeing eye in a design that was chosen for the $1 Federal Reserve Note bill in 1935. The modern Federal Reserve Note was introduced in 1914, with the reverse of the $1 bill redesigned to include this visual in 1935, while the effigy of President George Washington joined on the obverse in 1963.


The 1896 Educational Series Silver Certificates were released in three denominations. These denominations included the $1 design as found on these modern legal tender collectible notes, as well as $2 Silver Certificate and the $5 Silver Certificate. The Educational Series includes the allegory of Science Presenting Steam and Electricity on the $2 certificate and the allegory of Electricity Presenting Light to the World on the $5 certificate.
