Utah launched a transformative movement in the United States in 2011 with its state-level passage of the Utah Legal Tender Act. This act was an effort by the state government to recognize particular forms of gold as a valid currency. The Gold Utah Goldback Series of gold notes represent a voluntary local currency in Utah that vendors can choose to accept for all manner of transactions, small and large. Right now, you can buy the 1 Gold Utah Goldback Notes online at Provident Metals.


  • Arrives with a protective sleeve!
  • Includes a distinctive design as the smallest weight in the Utah Goldback Note Series!
  • Arrives with various years of issue!
  • Contains 1/1000 Troy oz of .999 pure gold.
  • On the obverse is an image of Prudence.
  • The reverse reflects the mirror image of the obverse design.
  • Made in the United States of America.

If you purchase one of these 1 Gold Utah Goldback Notes at Provident Metals, you receive a product that is in brand-new condition and comes with a protective sleeve. The gold notes in this series each feature a distinctive design. While Prudence features on the 1 Gold, 5 Gold, and 10 Gold Utah Goldback Notes, her effigy on each is different and reflects a different cultural aspect of the state of Utah.


On the obverse face of the 1 Gold Utah Goldback Note is the primary design of Prudence. Here, she is depicted as an indigenous woman representative of the tribes that called Utah home before the arrival of Americans and Europeans. She sits on a rock at the base of a tree with a wolf seated at her side. Reverse sides of 1 Gold Utah Goldback Notes do not have a unique design, but rather, reflect the mirror image of the designs engraved onto the obverse of the thin gold notes. The colorization that accompanies the obverse imagery does not show through on the reverse.


Following passage of the Utah Legal Tender Act, refining technology advanced to a point where thin gold notes containing .999 pure gold content could be produced in small increments that made it more affordable to own gold and feasible to actually consider its use again as a form of currency. While the act only applies to vendors and individuals in the state of Utah, the idea that gold could return as a form of currency not subject to the inflation of fiat currencies is an exciting one.

While the average 1 oz gold coin may have a nominal face value, the amount of gold contained within the coin makes its value incredibly high in the commercial world. For example, it would be impossible to grocery shop with a 1 oz gold bullion coin. However, at just 1/1000 Troy oz of gold content, something like the 1 Gold Utah Goldback Note opens the door to the exciting potential of a strong form of currency. Currently, these Utah Goldback Notes are a local voluntary form of currency vendors can choose to accept in the state of Utah.
