Utah has a history of trend-setting in American society that reaches as far back as the era of womens suffrage right through to the modern era. The Utah Legal Tender Act of 2011 opened the door for Utahans to spend gold physically in commercial and barter situations again for the first time since 1933, even though the order only applies to businesses in the state that choose to accept physical gold in the form of new Goldback Gold Notes. Today, 25 Utah Goldback Gold Notes are available to you online from JM Bullion.

Throughout the course of human history, the vast majority of gold has been available in increments that were not small enough for most people to easily interchange on a daily basis when bartering for goods and services. American gold coins were issued through 1933, but with the end of the gold standard and the cessation of gold coining, Americans now lack an easily interchangeable piece of gold.
All 25 Utah Goldback Gold Notes in this product listing are available to you with individual protective sleeves for shipping and storage. These gold notes represent the smallest increment of interchangeable gold you will find. Inspired by the passage of the Utah Legal Tender Act of 2011, the Utah Goldbacks are privately-issued local barter notes that Utahans can actually use in conjunction with any vendor willing to accept physical gold. Unlike gold bars or large gold coins, these gold notes have easy-to-use increments from 1/20 oz down to 1/1000 oz of gold.
On the obverse side of the 25 Utah Goldback Gold Note, you will find the image of Victoria as a US suffragette. Victoria was the Roman goddess and personification of victory and she was often depicted holding wheat, a symbol of victory. In this design, Victory holds wheat in one hand with the American flag on a short pole in her left hand.
Victoria is shown in the role of a suffragette in this design to honor Utahs place in the movement to grant women the right to vote in the United States. Utah granted women the right to vote in 1870, before it was a state, making it just the second US jurisdiction to do so following Wyoming. Victorias figure on these gold notes has a ribbon across her chest that reads Votes Counting Since 1870.
