The last issue of Gold Certificates in the United States came in 1928. The 1928 Series was not only the last redesign of Gold Certificates in US history, but it was also the last release of the notes as President Franklin D. Roosevelt outlawed private gold ownership and ended the gold standard in the US in 1933. Provident Metals currently has 1928 $20 Gold Certificates available to purchase online.

When you purchase the 1928 $20 Gold Certificate from Provident Metals, you will receive a note that has a protective plastic currency sleeve. The Gold Certificate Notes available here come in Very Fine condition. Notes in this condition boast modest to moderate signs of circulation use. These signs can vary from light soiling and seven-to-10 folds to numerous folds and mild soiling. Overall, these notes have only minor defects and no major detractions.


On the obverse of the 1928 $20 Gold Certificate is a depiction of President Andrew Jackson. Born in the Carolinas just before the American Revolution, Andrew Jackson would go on to serve with distinction in the War of 1812, famously routing the British Army at the Battle of New Orleans to deliver the United States a decisive victory at the end of the war, even though that battle came two weeks after peace had been agreed upon.


The reverse side of 1928 $20 Gold Certificates comes with an image of the White House in Washington D.C. The designs on both the obverse and reverse of these notes were the same as those introduced in 1928 on the $20 Federal Reserve Note. As the United States downsized the format of its notes in 1928, designs were shared across various collections with ink colors the most obvious way to distinguish between the forms of currency.


The 1928 $20 Gold Certificate was issued in two series. The 1928 Series had the signature combination of Woods and Mellon, while the 1928A Series had the signature combination of Woods and Mills. The Federal Reserve Note has serial numbers and Treasury seals in green ink, while Gold Certificates have yellow ink.
