Many have said that the Educational Series of legal tender Silver Certificates from the US Treasury are the most beautiful paper money designs the country has ever issued. The designs in what became known as the Educational Series were released on Silver Certificates in 1896 with distinct designs on the $1, $2, and $5 notes in the series. Though the notes are long gone from production, you can still own these beautiful designs. Right now, $1 Educational Legal Tender Notes are available to purchase online from JM Bullion.

Each $1 Educational Legal Tender Note available here is a crisp, clean, uncirculated $1 Federal Reserve Note. These notes are genuine US legal tender that have been enhanced with the application of high-definition, colorized images in a unique, proprietary process. In the case of these $1 Educational Legal Tender Notes, the modern $1 Federal Reserve Note has been enhanced with the iconic design from the Educational Note Series of Silver Certificates. These legal tender notes are housed in individual bi-fold display folios and come with an included Certificate of Authenticity.
The Educational Note Series was introduced in the Silver Certificate program in 1896. The designs came during a period when the United States was hoping to turn all of its paper money into pocket-sized works of art. In the case of the Educational Series, it is widely accepted that the three designs on the $1, $2, and $5 denominations rank as the top three designs in the history of American paper money.
Obverse designs on the $1 Educational Legal Tender Notes feature the image of the female allegory representative of history. She is seen here in a seated pose pointing out over the horizon. She is directing the attention and gaze of a young child across the Potomac River toward the Washington Monument and the US Capitol Building in the distance.
Reverse visuals on the $1 Educational Legal Tender Note offer the design used on the modern Federal Reserve Note $1 bill. The Federal Reserve Note, the modern paper currency of the United States still in use today, was authorized in 1913 and introduced into circulation in 1914. This reverse design has graced the bills since 1935.
