The Educational Note Series from the United States was released with three distinctive designs on the $1, $2, and $5 Silver Certificates. All three denominations were released into print and circulation in 1896, and the designs are widely considered to be the top-three design elements ever featured on American paper money alongside the likes of the 1901 $10 Bison Note.

Silver Certificates were issued by the United States starting in 1878 as an indirect result of the passage of the Fourth Coinage Act. That act brought an end to the free coining of silver and, at the same time, effectively put the US on the gold standard. Silver Certificates were issued to give Americans an option to exchange paper money for silver dollar coins. The certificates were, at first, redeemable for silver dollar coins, and from 1967-1968, were redeemable for raw silver bullion. The most beloved design series to ever feature on Silver Certificates was the Educational Series.
All of these $1 Educational Legal Tender Notes are available to you uncirculated in crisp, clean condition. The bills have been picked from wrapped, sealed Federal Reserve deliveries of modern $1 US bills. Each one has high-definition graphics imposed onto the obverse reflecting the 1896 $1 Silver Certificate design. The notes are housed in blue presentation folios with the bill on the right and a Certificate of Authenticity on the left.
On the obverse of $1 Educational Legal Tender Notes, you will find the recreated impression of the famous history allegory. In this design, the female personification of history lounges as she wraps her right hand around a youth as she instructs the child on national and world history. In the distance, the Washington Monument and the US Capitol Building are visible across the banks of the Potomac River.
The reverse face of the $1 Educational Legal Tender Notes comes with the modern $1 US bill design. Created in 1935, the Great Seal of the United States features here on these official Federal Reserve Notes with the all-seeing eye present in the design as well.
