Silver Plated 1957 $1 Silver Certificate
To add to its historic status, this Series of 1957 $1 Silver Certificate is actually highlighted in real silver. The number "1" and key wording on the note are beautifully embossed with silver foil.
Silver Certificate bank notes once circulated alongside other types of currency such as Federal Reserve Notes. Each Silver Certificate was backed by its face value in Silver Dollars or silver bullion in the United States Treasury, and holders of the notes could actually exchange them for the silver.
The last Silver Certificate ever issued was the Series of 1957 $1 Silver Certificate. Unlike today's Federal Reserve Notes that have green Treasury seals and serial numbers, Silver Certificates have distinctive blue Treasury seals and serial numbers. They were last redeemable for silver in 1968, but they remain legal tender, but most were worn out or destroyed in circulation.
