Among the most sought-out American currency designs is the so-called Silver Certificate Chief Note. The 1899 redesign of the $5 denomination in the United States Silver Certificate Series introduced an effigy of Running Antelope on the obverse, making it not only the first note with an indigenous figure on it, but also making Running Antelope the first indigenous person to feature on American money.

Silver Certificates were issued in the United States as large-sized notes from 1878 to 1927. In 1928, the series was downsized to a smaller format consistent with the size of modern Federal Reserve Notes. From 1878 to 1964, Silver Certificates were regularly printed by the United States. Until 1967, the notes were redeemable with the Treasury for the face value in silver dollars. Rising silver prices in the 1960s forced the Treasury to issue raw silver bullion instead in the final year of redemption from June 1967 to June 1968.
