Why purchase this Brilliant Uncirculated 25 New Hampshire Goldback Aurum Gold Foil Note?
This Aurum gold foil note is one of five denominations included in the New Hampshire Goldback note series, which is recognized as voluntary legal tender only throughout the state of New Hampshire. Aurum is an amazingly durable gold foil product created by applying a thin, precisely measured layer of vaporized 24 karat gold to a thin sheet of polyester that has been inked with note's high resolution design, followed by a final polyester layer to completely encapsulate the gold.
Lovely Selectively Colorized Vintage Style Imagery
Obverse: Fortitudine, an allegorical figure symbolizing fortitude, is portrayed as a young woman on the obverse. She stands in an alert pose, with a musket propped on her shoulder, wearing a dress bearing elements of the American flag and a Revolutionary War uniform jacket. At her feet, the silhouette of the state adapted from the famed granite monument of New Hampshire is emblazoned with its official motto "LIVE FREE OR DIE," beside two creatures native to the state, an opossum and a porcupine. The maple tree behind Fortitudine is fitted with a tap and bucket, representing the resurgence of life and the fortitude of the state's residents, after a harsh winter. The message "TAKE COURAGE" is located near the bottom right corner of the image, along with the signature of Cheri Jensen, the Utah artist who designed the powerful illustrations for all five New Hampshire Goldback notes. Additional inscriptions include "25 NEW HAMPSHIRE GOLDBACKS," "VOLUNTARY NEGOTIABLE INSTRUMENT" and "1/40 TROY OUNCE 24K GOLD."
Reverse: The reverse does not contain intentional imagery. Instead, it features the ghosted mirror image of the obverse design due to the note's unique minting method.
