From 1878 until 1964, silver certificates were included among the different types of circulating paper currency issued by the US Treasury. Of special interest for many collectors are the large format horse blanket notes that were printed through Series 1923. Because of their larger size, these notes feature more elaborate artwork that really stands out when on display.

When you order $20 Silver Certificate Notes from Provident Metals, they will arrive in protective currency sleeves. These sleeves include a label featuring the official certification details from PCGS. As Choice 15 notes, you may notice significant signs of wear. While the notes may retain some of their original snap, this could also be compromised by a heavy crease in the middle.


On the obverse of 1891 Silver Certificate Notes, there is a portrait of Daniel Manning. Also, on either side of the former Secretary of the Treasury, there are figures dressed in classical Roman attire. Various text is found across the obverse in addition to the serial numbers and the Treasury seal. The serial numbers are in blue ink while the seal appears in red.


The reverse of 1891 $20 Silver Certificates contains denomination details and obligation language. The denomination is shown numerically six times, including in each corner. There is also an elegant decorative pattern across the border that then extends out into the center of the note. Text is also featured on the reverse that reads United States, Twenty Dollars, Silver Certificate.


Over the course of their existence, the Treasury issued several different kinds of silver certificates. First, there were the large format notes, which were printed between 1878 and 1927. Then in 1928, a new series began in a smaller format with designs much closer to todays paper currency. There were also special emergency silver certificates issued during WWII. These notes had unique markings on them so that in the event of an enemy takeover, they could be demonetized.
