Each of these paper notes was used in circulation in the United States, making this a piece of living history.

These pieces of representative money were printed from 1878 until 1964 as a response to citizens upset about the Fourth Coinage Act, which moved the U.S. to the gold standard. At the time of their printing, these certificates were redeemable for silver dollar coins or bullion. After 1968, they were no longer exchangeable in this way, but retain their face value as legal tender.

Each certificate features a portrait of President Abraham Lincoln and reads “THIS CERTIFIES THAT THERE IS A DEPOSIT IN THE TREASURY OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.” The bottom of that side says “FIVE DOLLARS IN SILVER PAYABLE TO THE BEARER ON DEMAND.”

The reverse includes an elegant depiction of the Lincoln Memorial and the words “THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA” and “FIVE DOLLARS.” The 1953 series are signed by Ivy Baker Priest and George M. Humphry, U.S. Treasurer and Secretary of the Treasury.
