US paper currency issued in the late-19th and very-early-20th centuries represented the height of American paper money design. Many of the designs that stand the test of time and remain popular with collectors today came from this golden age in the 1890s and 1910s when the Treasury and Bureau of Printing & Engraving sought to put small works of art in the pocket of every American on national currency. Provident Metals is now happy to offer the 4 oz Silver 1890 $1000 Treasury Grand Watermelon Note Replica Plate Bar to you for purchase online.


  • Arrives with an individual shipping capsule!
  • Impressive replica of the $1000 note from the 1890 Series Treasury Note!
  • Contains 4 Troy oz of .999 pure silver.
  • The nation of issue and portrait of General George Meade feature on the obverse of the bar.
  • The assigned denomination of the original note, with its trademarked zeros, appears on the reverse of the bar.

When you purchase one of these 4 oz Silver $1000 Treasury Grand Watermelon Note Replica Plate Bars, you will receive a product from Provident Metals that is housed inside of an individual plastic capsule. Each one comes with the exact details of the original note from 1890 and is struck in .999 pure silver.


For the detailed obverse of the 4 oz Silver 1890 $1000 Treasury Grand Watermelon Note Replica Plate Bar, you will find the issuing nation, denomination, and redeemable medium for the notes. This includes inscriptions of United States of America, 1000, One Thousand Dollars, and In Coin. To the left of the design field is an effigy of Union Army General George Meade.


In the reverse design of 4 oz Silver Treasury Grand Watermelon Note Replica Plate Bars, the producer features a depiction of the exact reverse from the Treasury Note Series. The design itself is not among the most artistic from the Treasury and the Bureau of Printing & Engraving, however, the numbers it used for the design became popular with Americans. The large, green zeros of the original note were fondly referred to as watermelons, hence the common name for the note as the Grand Watermelon, for both the appearance of the zeros and the value of the note. There are various inscriptions on this side denoting the value of the original notes.


The Treasury Note series that included this design was only available from 1890 to 1893, with the designs and denominations rolled out in two phases across 1890 and 1891. The $1000 denomination was the largest and was issued, like the other denominations, to individuals selling silver bullion to the US Treasury. Silver bullion was sold to the Treasury in exchange for the note, which could later be redeemed in coin, allowing the Treasury to fulfill that obligation using gold coins, silver coins, or a combination of both.
