Why does this commemorative 1928 $100 Gold Certificate in perfectly minted condition belong in your collection?
From 1863 until 1933, Gold Certificates were a form of U.S. paper currency, which represented equivalent value gold coinage held by banks. In 1928, a series of notes were introduced that were smaller than previously issued certificates, the proportions of which closely resemble the size of U.S. currency in circulation today. This commemorative $100 1928 Gold Certificate contains 100 mg of .999 fine gold.
Classic Benjamin Franklin Design
A lifelike portrait of Benjamin Franklin is featured on the obverse, with the certificate's value described below as "ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS IN GOLD COIN PAYABLE TO THE BEARER ON DEMAND." Design details imitate the original 1928 certificate, with the addition of the inscription "100 MG 24K GOLD" and the modification of the text over the treasury seal to read: "THIS CERTIFICATE IS NOT A LEGAL TENDER."
Independence Hall in Philadelphia is depicted on the reverse, surrounded by an ornate border with the denomination "100" in each corner. Additional inscriptions include "THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" and "ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS."
