The First-Ever Small-Sized $100 Gold Certificate Reborn in Actual Gold!
In 1928, the United States government issued a new series of Gold Certificates. Those notes were the new smaller size we all now carry in our pockets. The Gold Certificates circulated right alongside the better-known Federal Reserve Notes only until 1933 when President Franklin D. Roosevelt pressed for passage of the Gold Reserve Act, causing the Federal Reserve to transfer its stash of gold certificates and bullion to the Treasury where most of these notes were gathered up and destroyed.
Now you can secure these notes struck — not printed — as gleaming commemoratives crafted in 100 mg of 24-karat gold! The $100 note available here features the same portrait we see of Benjamin Franklin that appears on today’s $100 bills. The obverse displays a brilliant gold color with black and bright golden yellow highlights. The reverse features a green color similar to the originals. The only difference in the designs is a slight revision to incorporate the gold weight.
The reverse features an intricate engraving of Philadelphia’s Independence Hall. Today’s $100 bill features the same building, with a slight difference in the trees surrounding the building. More importantly, the front of the note shows an eye-catching seal and serial number printed in gold. At the bottom center, the notes proclaim that the face amount is “In gold coin payable to the bearer on demand.” Though don’t try to spend these commemoratives, they’re not legal tender.
