The Coinage Act of 1873 put the United States exclusively on the gold standard, upsetting those who wanted to invest in silver. In response, the government issued Silver Certificates, legally exchangeable for pure silver.
Several types of silver certificates were created, including the Large-Size Silver Certificates, Small-Size Silver Certificates, special World War II issues, and Star Notes. These bills come in many denominations: $1, $2, $5, $10, $20, all the way up to $1000.
Because silver certificates were used as circulating currency, they frequently exhibit signs of wear, but a variety can be found. Silver certificates offer designs that are similar to the modern dollar bill but frequently include uncommon colors and unfamiliar motifs.
Silver certificates make excellent gifts or curiosity collectables. Order yours from Provident Metals today.
