Why add this Brilliant Uncirculated 10 Utah Goldback Aurum Gold Foil Note to your collection?
The passage of the Utah Legal Tender Act in 2011 prompted the introduction of a local, voluntary currency known as the Utah Goldback, accepted by certain businesses in Utah. The Goldbacks are available in five denominations, each featuring a distinct design inspired by Roman mythology, illustrated with full color high resolution graphics and text. The notes are created from Aurum, which is a thin layer of 24 karat gold coated on each side with a durable polyester film. Accepted as voluntary local currency within the state of Utah, this 10 Utah Goldback is minted with 1/100 Troy oz. of .999 fine gold.
Sensational Colorized Imagery
Justitia, the Roman goddess of Justice, is illustrated on the obverse wearing a blindfold to symbolize her lack of bias. She hold in her hands a sword representing fair judgement, and the Scale of Balance to signify the ideal that true justice is served with a balance of faith. Inscribed "TEN UTAH GOLDBACKS," "VOLUNTARY LOCAL CURRENCY" and "1/100 TROY OUNCE 24K GOLD."
A mirror image of the obverse design appears on the reverse as a result of the note's innovative minting method.
Beautifully Crafted Brilliant Uncirculated Aurum Note
This colorized 10 Utah Goldback Aurum Gold Foil Note is presented as received from the mint, in Brilliant Uncirculated (BU) condition. The ungraded 24 karat gold note possesses nearly perfect surfaces paired with fantastic eye appeal.
