Put Some Gold Back in Your Collection With the Utah Goldback

Did you know there’s a voluntary unit of local currency that exists only in Utah? It’s true! Thanks to the passage of the Utah Legal Tender Act in 2011, a large number of local merchants and vendors are willing to accept a new currency called “Goldback Notes” as payments.

Struck in 24-karat gold foil, these notes are crafted in increments of 1/1000th of an ounce of highly pure 99.99% fine gold. Each wafer-thin note is coated with a protective plastic cover so it can be circulated, exchanged and used without the gold tearing. They’re meant to be used just like cash to purchase items from merchants who are willing to accept them. If you travel through Utah, you’ll undoubtedly see signs that say “Goldbacks Accepted Here” to let you know these fractional gold units can be spent just like any other form of legal-tender currency. Anyone can own the Goldbacks, but they’re legal tender only in Utah.

Not only is each Goldback crafted in increments of 1/1000th of an ounce of pure gold (1 Aurum), but they are also fabulous examples of the engraver’s art—and the larger the denomination, the bigger the note. The design on each denomination features an allegorical depiction of one of the lady virtues and combines her with a distinct period of time in Utah.

The 10 Aurum 1/100th-oz gold note offered here features the allegorical figure of Lady Justice wearing the apron and dress of a 19th century woman. In her left hand she wields the sword of Justice to signify that justice is served only after fair judgment is made. In her right hand, Justice holds the balance scales. Finally, she is blindfolded to show that true justice is blind and served with unbiased faith. Following the Compromise of 1850, out of which the Utah Territory was created, early Utah law was a mix of natural, divine, state, federal and Mormon laws.

Not just a novelty item, Utah’s Goldback Notes are official legal tender. Plus, each bill can be melted down for its precious metal content if its owner would rather have a solid gold piece. It’s always good to have some gold in your portfolio, and now you can obtain pure gold that’s capable of buying basic items such as a loaf of bread, a gallon of milk, a dozen eggs… and more! Go for the gold today and have a ready stash for tomorrow!
