Why add this Smithsonian Edition (2018) 24K Gold $100 Certificate to your collection?
Collectors with an interest in monetary history are sure to love this 24K Gold Certificate. It replicates the notes used for exchange among Federal Reserve Banks. The original notes, most of which were destroyed when they went out of use in the 1960s, were never released into circulation and instead were used for inter-bank transactions. Officially licensed by the Smithsonian, this replica of a 1934 $100 Gold Certificate was struck from .1 g of .999 fine gold at a private mint, and is available through a partnership with ModernCoinMart and the Smithsonian..
Stunning Independence Hall Vignette
A portrait of Ben Franklin, one of America's best known Founding Fathers, features at the center of the obverse. Below his portrait is an inscription of his name, "FRANKLIN." On the top of this certificate is an inscription of its country, "THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA." On the bottom are inscriptions that note its value, "ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS IN GOLD" and "PAYABLE TO THE BEARER ON DEMAND AS AUTHORIZED BY LAW." The phrase "as authorized by law" distinguishes the 1934 edition from previous ones. The Smithsonian Institution's logo replaces inscriptions about the note being legal tender on the left, while the note's face value, "100," is set to the right. "100" also appears in each of the corners.
The reverse is dominated by a vignette of one of Philadelphia's most important landmarks, Independence Hall. "THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" is inscribed above the vignette, and "ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS" is inscribed below it. As on the obverse, "100" is inscribed in each corner.
The experts at Paper Money Grading (PMG) certified that this certificate is in GEM condition. That means that it shows no more than one or two signs of minor handling and that its centering is above average.
