Each of the 1839-1841 $20 Republic of Texas Notes listed here comes with a plastic currency sleeve. The notes were originally printed for circulation between 1839 and 1841 with no changes ever occurring to the primary design elements. You will notice that the notes you receive through this listing could feature different date marks in that range, but none of the visual elements have otherwise been changed. The notes are in Fine+ condition, meaning each one presents with common wear and tear like fold lines and rounded corners. Please bear in mind that not only the date marks could vary on the notes you receive, but too could the exact condition.

The Republic of Texas Notes were conceived of in 1839 to help finance the debts of the Republic. It was during the administration of President Mirabeau B. Lamar that the notes were released. As the sovereign state had no silver or gold resources within its boundaries, it never ended up minting coins. This was part of the reason the Republic of Texas was quicker to issue paper money than the United States of America.

The obverse of the 1839-1841 $20 Republic of Texas Note features a variety of vignettes. In the lower-right field, you will find a depiction of a mythological goddess of war with a Corinthian helmet. The upper field has a vignette of a woman standing near a seated indigenous figure with a shield bearing the Lone Star of the Republic. Along the left side of the note is the image of an indigenous figure drawing an arrow back.

On the reverse of 1839-1841 $20 Republic of Texas Notes is a depiction of the De Zavala Star. This star includes the letters spelling out “TEXAS” between each of its five points. The De Zavala Star is named for Lorenzo de Zavala, a Tejano figure who served as the First Vice President of the Republic of Texas. The star was originally printed in red ink, but that ink was found to have been low quality and resulted in most notes having an orangish hue instead of red.

Is my information secure?

We take data security very seriously. When you place an order with silver.com, your information is transmitted with the utmost SSL (secure socket layers) 256-bit protection. We also never have access to your credit/debit card details, as they are securely communicated directly to the payment processor (Authorize.net) and never retained by Silver.com. For this reason, we also don't process credit/debit card orders over the phone, as it is the least secure way to process those transactions.

In addition, all VISA and MasterCard orders undergo an additional step of user authentication - the respective Verified by VISA or MasterCard SecureCode programs. Upon completing checkout with a VISA or MasterCard credit/debit card, you may be promoted for additional details to confirm your identity and protect our customers against credit card fraud.

Finally, the data we do retain in our system, including but not limited to name, address, phone number, and order history, is never shared with or sold to any unrelated third-parties. Please review our Privacy Policy for full details on our data security measures.

Please feel welcome to call us toll free at 1(888) 989-7223 or use our Live Chat feature during normal business hours Monday through Friday, 08:00 a.m. to 06:00 p.m. CST. Alternatively, you can email us at help@silver.com and expect a response within 1 business day.

Please note, the Silver.com website accepts orders 24/7/365, so you can always lock in live product prices and make purchases outside of business hours.

Do you charge sales tax?

We are required to collect sales tax in certain states. You can review your states sales tax policy here: https://www.silver.com/taxes. You should always consult with a tax adviser for specific advice in your area.

Where does your spot price come from?

We use a live, up-to-the-second spot price feed supplied by Xignite.com, a worldwide leader in the data supply market.

Are your products actually in stock?

Yes. We are one of the few bullion dealers in the industry who only deems products "in stock" when we have them on-hand and ready to ship immediately. In the instance of a presale item, we denote that the product is on presale and the estimated shipping date. While we make the best efforts to hit presale dates, the dates are only estimates, given we cannot control mint production issues and/or carrier dealyes.

Why are multiple prices listed?

We offer a 4% discount to "cash" paying customers - with paper check, bank wire, and bitcoin payments being defined as cash. On many products, we are also able to offer volume discounts to customers purchasing large quantities of the same item. All volume pricing is laid out in the chart on the product's description page, as well as in the cart.

When do I lock in my price?

All prices are locked in at the time of purchase. Credit/debit card, PayPal, BitCoin, Ethereum, and Ripple orders are paid at the time of checkout, while paper check and bank wire orders require a credit/debit card on file to lock in your pricing while we await your payment. Please note, paper check and bank wire orders will NOT result in a charge to your card - we simple maintain the card on file while we await full payment by your selected payment method.

Do you ship internationally?

We currently only ship to addresses in the United States, including APOs.
