In 1942, the United States government issued an emergency release of North Africa silver certificates to be used by troops fighting overseas. Included on these notes was a yellow Treasury seal, which differed from the blue-colored seals typically found on silver certificates. In the event of an enemy takeover, these notes could be declared null and void. While they are no longer backed by physical silver, these notes are still considered legal tender.

Lincoln was President of the United States from 1861 until 1865, during which time he successfully brought an end to slavery in the country. Unique features on this silver certificate include the yellow Treasury seal to the right of Lincolns portrait, and the notation Five Dollars in Silver Payable to the Bearer on Demand.


The Lincoln Memorial is depicted on the reverse side of 1934a $5 Silver Certificate North Africa Notes. Also included in each corner is the notes denomination.

The controversial Coinage Act of 1873 put an end to the bimetallic standard designed by Alexander Hamilton. This act was decried by much of the public as the Crime of 73, to rectify the situation, the government began issuing silver certificates in 1878. Early denominations ranged from $10 to $1000, but the later small-sized certificates that began in 1928 consisted only of $1, $5, and $10 denominations. In 1964, these certificates were no longer issued, and in 1971 the US officially went off the silver standard.
