When it comes to investing in legal tender at JM Bullion, many investors and collectors might turn to the legal-tender silver and gold bullion coins we carry. However, while these products are incredibly popular with investors, there are more options out there beyond these series for collectors to consider. Chief among them are legal tender notes that combine modern paper currency with the finest designs from American history. To learn more about the Other Legal Tender options from JM Bullion, we encourage you to read on below.
Throughout the history of paper currency production in the United States, various types of paper notes have printed by the United States Mint and the Treasury Department. From Silver Certificates and United States Notes to National Bank Notes, Federal Reserve Bank Notes and the modern Federal Reserve Notes, American paper money has evolved with time. In the case of collections like the Silver Certificate and the United States Note, some of America’s greatest paper money designs came from a bygone era. While JM Bullion does not offer rare, collector editions of these notes, we do carry modern collector versions of these designs embossed onto current Federal Reserve Notes. Below is a sampling of the designs you can find on modern legal tender notes at JM Bullion:
One of the best ways to collect some of America’s greatest coin designs without paying sky-high premiums is through the purchase of clad coins. A clad coin can come with any design, but what matters, in the end, is the metal that the coin is finished with. In most cases, JM Bullion carries clad coins that are finished with thin layers of 24-karat gold and/or ruthenium. As far as designs are concerned, you could find anything from obscure, historic US coin designs to exact replicas of modern US bullion coins.
Another option for collectors seeking out America’s best coin designs are tribute coins, as one example. Tribute coins are similar to clad coins in the replication of historic coin designs and/or the use of clad layers to replicate the physical appearance of historic coins or modern bullion coins. However, tribute coins often feature designs that include all of the original inscriptions found on US coinage, even if the coins are NOT legal tender. You can spot the difference between a modern bullion coin and a tribute coin by the presence of a “COPY” inscription on one face of the coin. Additionally, like clad coins, tribute coins are finished with a thin layer of gold, silver, or another precious metal, rather than being produced with .999+ pure metal content.
