The US Treasury began producing a new series of silver certificates in 1896 with designs ordered by Claude M. Johnson, the chief of the Bureau of Engraving and Printing. Known as the Educational Series, the silver certificates depicted various allegorical motifs and remaining specimens are coveted by numismatists.
The Educational Series offered values of $1, $2, and $5 (USD). The Bureau of Engraving and Printing produced various designs for the Educational Series through 1899 in the aforementioned face values, while designs were prepared for $10 and $50 denominations but never released ahead of the cancellation of the collection.
On the obverse face of 2017 1/10 Gram Aurum Educational Restrike Gold Notes is a depiction based on the 1896 $2 Silver Certificate in the Educational Series. The design on this particular gold note depicts the allegorical image of a neoclassical figure of “History Instructing Youth.” History sits in the background with younger generations gathered in front the allegorical figure.
The design element on this side features full-color artwork with an inscription of the weight in milligrams in the two upper corners and “D’ORO” above the design element. These notes are not legal tender and that fact is noted on the bottom of the design field.
Each of the 2017 1/10 Gram Aurum Educational Restrike Gold Notes in this product listing are produced using a proprietary technique. Defined amounts of gold are layered in between two sheets of polyester.
