Description

Believe it or not, there was a time in this country when you could go to the bank, take out your wallet, and trade a single note for a hefty $10 gold coin! That note was the $10 Gold Certificate. This was the last series of large-sized $10 Gold Certificates, many of which were later recalled and destroyed after the U.S. left the gold standard behind in 1933. The front displays Michael Hillegas, the first Treasurer of the United States — a man largely lost to historical obscurity until his descendants petitioned to have his face placed on the 1922 and 1907 $10 Gold Certificates. The back of the note displays the Great Seal of the United States printed in vibrant gold ink — just in case anyone doubted the note was redeemable in gold.
