Magnificent Selectively Colorized Imagery
Obverse: The obverse features a rendition of the Greek Goddess Gratia, an allegorical figure representing the virtue of grace. A young Abanaki Native American woman from the New Hampshire Algonquin tribes is depicted kneeling near a cluster of pumpkins, draped in a banner embellished with the word "GRATIA." She is dressed in the traditional clothing and beads of the Abanaki, with a wigwam style shelter in the background and an otter at her side. Native to New Hampshire, otters are symbolic of grace and empathy. Symbolic elements throughout the image are associated with the Jewish Festival/Feast of Trumpets and Rosh Hashanah, being celebrated alongside Thanksgiving, which was established as a national holiday in 1863 due to the efforts of New Hampshire native Sarah Josepha Hale. The artwork, which includes the title "GIVE THANKS," was created by renowned Utah illustrator Cheri Jensen. Inscriptions include "NEW HAMPSHIRE GOLDBACK," "VOLUNTARY NEGOTIABLE INSTRUMENT," "1/1000 TROY OUNCE 24K GOLD" and "ONE."
Reverse: The reverse is intentionally blank. However, the note's extraordinary production technique results in a lightly frosted mirror image of the obverse design.
