The new series of Utah Goldback Notes is an exceptional example of the potential for gold as a spendable currency once again. The gold notes in this series were released as a local, voluntary form of gold currency accepted in the state of Utah at the discretion of vendors, but it can be purchased by any gold buyers as an affordable, unique form of gold bullion. Provident Metals now offers 5 Gold Utah Goldback Notes to you for online purchasing.
When you purchase a 5 Gold Utah Goldback Note, the item you receive comes with its own protective sleeve and is available in brand-new condition. These gold notes are produced as thin gold products with high-quality, full-color photographs and text on the obverse side that is visible in mirrored relief on the reverse face.
The female personifications of Prudence and Veritas feature on the obverse side of 5 Gold Utah Goldback Notes. The design depicts Prudence almost whited out by the light of the torch she carries, as Veritas is depicted at her side walking west while carrying two books in her left hand that represent the scriptures. The design reflects the westward movement of Americans, in general, during the 19th century and the settling of Utah by Mormons, specifically, during this time period.
As a female personification, Prudence represents the virtue of good decision-making and the ability to act wisely upon those decisions. Veritas is a female personification whose use dates back to the Roman Empire and reflects truthfulness in actions.
The Utah Goldback Note Series is inspired by the passage in 2011 of the Utah Legal Tender Act. The statewide act sought to establish acceptable forms of gold currency or notes in the state so that Utahans, in particular, could once again barter and transact with affordable gold. This opened the door to Utahans being able to possess a form of currency not subject to the whims of inflation to the extent that fiat currencies are subjected.
It is important to note that Utah Goldback Notes are a voluntary, local form of currency not broadly considered legal tender in the United States. However, these could be spent with any local vendor that opts to accept the notes and the gold notes make a great, affordable gold purchase for anyone residing outside of Utah as well.
