The release of the $1 Silver Certificate in the Series of 1891 represented the first redesign of the denomination following its introduction in 1886. When this denomination debuted in 1886, Martha Washington made history as the first, and still only, female to feature on American paper money as the primary portrait figure. Right now, you can buy Fine-condition 1891 $1 Silver Certificate Notes online at Provident Metals.

Martha Washington is found on the obverse of 1891 $1 Silver Certificate Notes. This is the second appearance of Martha Washington on the $1 Silver Certificate and one of three overall as she featured on the 1896 Educational Series Note, but was moved to the reverse side along with her husband, President George Washington. This side of the note has a small, scalloped version of the US Treasury seal that is printed in red ink. You will also find the signatures of the Register of the Treasury and the Treasurer of the United States.


The series name, country of origin, and denomination are all featured on the reverse of 1891 $1 Silver Certificate Notes. The notations on this side include United States of America, Silver Certificate, and One Dollar.


To this day, Martha Washington remains the only female figure to feature as the primary, solitary design element on American paper money. The US Silver Certificate Series printed new notes from 1878 when the first denominations debuted until 1964. Notes could be redeemed with the US Treasury through 1968, though the final year from June 1967 to June 1968 offered only raw silver bullion when redeeming the notes instead of the face value in silver dollars.
