Why add this Aurum 24 KT Gold Foil 5 Utah Goldback note to your collection?
The Utah Goldback is a form of circulating precious metal voluntary local currency only accepted in the state of Utah by certain businesses. This example of a 5 Utah Goldback is created from Aurum. Aurum is created by an innovative process, in which a printed polyester film is sprayed with a thin layer of vaporized gold, in this case 1/200 Troy oz. of .999 fine, then sealed with another polyester layer. The result is a remarkably durable and affordable 24 karat gold note.
Breathtaking Female Personification of Truth
The Roman goddess Veritas is featured on the obverse. Representing the virtue of truth in Roman mythology, Veritas was frequently depicted holding a lantern as a symbolic guide in the journey to truth and enlightenment. In this portrayal Veritas also holds books of scriptures and a compass, referencing the truths followed by pioneers who settled in the Utah territory. Inscriptions include "FIVE UTAH GOLDBACKS," "VOLUNTARY LOCAL CURRENCY" and "1/200 TROY OUNCE 24K GOLD."
The reverse is undecorated, with a mirror image of the obverse design clearly visible.
