One of the more unique options available for collectors of paper currency are the gold certificates issued by the United States government. In 1865, the first large-size gold certificates were printed. Then in 1928, a new small-size certificate was created that was modeled after the traditional Federal Reserve note design. These were the final gold certificates printed by the government, as the Gold Reserve Act of 1934 ordered all gold and gold certificates to be surrendered to the Treasury. Now, you have the chance to buy Very Fine-condition 1928 $10 Gold Certificates online at Provident Metals.
When you order $10 Gold Certificate Notes in this online Provident Metals listing, you will receive an authentic 1928 currency note produced by the US government. Due to their age, these notes will show some wear and tear. Their condition is officially listed as Very Fine, which allows for light soiling and various fold marks on the surface. For protection, each note is packaged inside a plastic currency sleeve.
On the obverse side of 1928 Gold Certificate Notes, there is a portrait of Alexander Hamilton. Hamilton, who established the US central banking system, is still featured on the $10 bill to this day. On the left and right sides of the portrait, you will see the bills serial number in gold lettering. Also shown is the gold seal and the notation The United States of America, Ten Dollars in Gold Coin Payable to Bearer on Demand.
The reverse of 1928 $10 Certificate Notes depicts a motif of the United States Treasury building. In each corner, you will also see numeric and alphabetic depictions of the number 10. Additional details include the words The United States of America, Ten Dollars.
Gold Certificates were produced by the United States during two separate periods. The first were the large-sized notes that were issued starting in 1865. They were distinguished by their unique orange-colored reverse designs, which gave them their nicknames yellow boys and goldbacks. Then in 1928, a new smaller-sized note was created. However, the circulation of this note was short-lived, as the 1934 Gold Reserve Act declared that all gold and gold certificates be surrendered to the Treasury. This was part of an effort to print greater amounts of paper currency and separate it from the gold standard it had previously been tethered to.
