Why order this Smithsonian Edition (2018) $1,000 24K Gold Certificate?
In 1934, the US issued gold certificates for Federal Reserve Banks. The notes were never issued for circulation. The 1934 editions were particularly significant since the US went off the gold standard in 1933. Though most of these notes were destroyed when they went out of use in the 1960s, some were preserved for history's sake and are now housed by the renowned Smithsonian. Through a partnership with the Smithsonian, ModernCoinMart has sourced officially licensed replicas of the 1934 notes. Each certificate was struck from .1 g of .999 fine gold at a private mint.
Striking President Grover Cleveland Design
A right-side portrait of President Grover Cleveland features at the center of the obverse. "CLEVELAND" is inscribed just below the portrait. Spread out on the bottom of the certificate are the inscriptions "THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "ONE THOUSAND DOLLARS IN GOLD," and "PAYABLE TO THE BEARER ON DEMAND AS AUTHORIZED BY LAW." The phrase "as authorized by law" makes this note different from previous editions. To the left of the portrait is the Smithsonian's logo, which indicates that this product was licensed by the institution. "1000" is inscribed to the right of it, as well as in each of the corners.
Two inscriptions feature prominently at the center of the reverse. One is "THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" and the other is "ONE THOUSAND DOLLARS." The face value of the certificate is noted in numerical form, "1000," in each of the corners.
Exquisite GEM Condition
This certificate has been certified by Paper Money Grading to be in GEM condition. That means that it may show one or two signs of light handling and has above average centering.
