Large Size-Gold Certificates

Large Size Gold Certificates were authorized by the Acts of March 3, 1863, July 12, 1882, March 14, 1900, and Dec. 24, 1919.

Gold Certificates are one of the most vivid and colorful of all our US notes. They feature a beautiful burnt-orange color that unfortunately fades quite easily. Their colors reflect the gold coins they represent. Of the nine issues, only the fourth, seventh, eighth and the ninth issues were circulated to any extent.

  • The first three issues were printed between 1865 and 1875, some of them were printed uniface for foreign banks to identify our currency. Most of this currency was used between bank to bank transactions only.
  • The fourth issues were the 1882 series and were issued in denominations of $20 to $10,000. Only the $10, $20, $50 and $100 are still available for collectors.
  • The fifth and sixth issue was the series of 1888 and 1900 and consisted of $5,000 and $10,000 notes only. Forget finding one.
  • The seventh issue consisted of the 1905, 1906 and 1907 series. They were issued in denominations of $10 and $20 only. These are the ones you are most likely to see today. The 1905 $20 gold certificate is known as the "Technicolor Note", and is very popular and expensive in higher grades.
  • The eighth issue was the 1907 $1,000 only. It is extremely rare or unknown.
  • The ninth issue is of the 1913 and 1922 series. The 1913 issue was issued in the $50 denomination only. The 1922 issue was in denominations of $10, $20, $50, $100, $500, $1,000, $5,000 and $10,000. The 1922 issue is the more common large-size gold certificate we see in todays marketplace. The $5,000 and $10,000 denomination is unknown.

The Bureau of Engraving and Printing's (BEP) takes you to the official government site of the BEP for some interesting information and facts on all of our US currency.

US Papermoney will take you to a site that is full of information on everything you ever wanted to know about our US currency. Almost everything anyway. Very cool site!

The American Numismatics Association (ANA) is a professional organization for those who want to further learn about US coins and currency.

PMG and PCGS are the only two TRUE independent currency-grading services available. I highly recommend these two companies for those of you who want to get their currency certified and graded for insurance purposes or simply, a peace of mind.
