One of the rarest and most sought-after historical currency runs in the American context is the 1882 series of gold certificate notes. A “hard money” currency, this was the first series to be payable to the bearer, its notes redeemable for the face value in gold coinage anywhere. The twenty-dollar denomination features a portrait of President James Garfield, whose tenure had been tragically cut short in the midst of immense public shock and grief just the year before. The team at Provident Metals is delighted to offer the 1882 $20 Gold Certificate Note for online purchase.


  • Arrives in an individual currency sleeve with a label to verify its PMG-certified grade!
  • 1882 issue of $20 Gold Certificate!
  • Carries a face value of $20 (USD), issued by the United States government.
  • Obverse side features President James Garfield.
  • Reverse side features a bald eagle.

This 1882 $20 Gold Certificate Note comes in an individual currency sleeve with a label that specifies its PMG Grade of Very Good (10). This means it is a fully whole and intact note that shows the minor flaws and overall condition associated with extensive circulation, but still showcases the note’s full design. Provident Metals fully insures each shipment against any possibility of loss or damage in transit.


The obverse side features a portrait of President James Garfield. The note’s serial number appears in both the lower left and upper right fields, while the US Treasury stamp appears in the bottom center field.


The reverse side of the note features orange ink in its design elements and a bald eagle image at the center. This is surrounded by verifications of its face value and country of origin.


Paper Money Guaranty or PMG has been a trusted third-party certification and grading service for years, trusted as the official grader for the American Numismatics Association (ANA) and the Professional Numismatics Gold (PNG). Its internationally recognized scale measures the visible effects of a note’s circulated or uncirculated status, and has been used to certify over eight million notes from the US and around the world. The 1882 Series of Gold Certificate notes from the United States contains some of the rarest and most sought-after pieces of its kind in the world, and the twenty-dollar denomination is particularly notable for commemorating one of the most dramatically curtailed Presidencies in history outside of Abraham Lincoln’s.
