The United States Treasury issued Silver Certificates as a form of paper money from 1878 to 1964. The Fourth Coinage Act of 1873 ended the free coining of silver in the United States, halted production of the silver dollar, and effectively put the US on the gold standard. In response to agitation among Americans about the pinch on silver, the Treasury issued Silver Certificates. Today, 1886 $1 Silver Certificate Martha Washington Notes are available to you online at Silver.com.

Note Highlights:

  • Available to ship to you inside a protective currency sleeve!
  • First version of the $1 Silver Certificate!
  • Martha Washington portrait is the first on the $1 Silver Certificate!
  • Offered in Fine+ condition!
  • The face value of $1 (USD) was issued by the US government.
  • On the obverse is a portrait of Martha Washington.
  • The reverse includes the denomination of the note.
  • Please remember you could get notes with varying versions of the US Treasury seal, various ink colors, and different combinations of signatures when buying multiples.

Silver Certificates were produced by the US Treasury from 1878 to 1964 and redeemable through June 1968. The certificates could be redeemed in silver dollars matching the face value on the note. In the final year of availability, the notes could be redeemed for raw silver bullion only.

All of these 1886 $1 Silver Certificate Martha Washington Notes are available with protective currency sleeves. The notes are in Fine+ condition, meaning you will find considerable indications of circulation use on the note. These include wear and tear such as rounded edges and splits at the margins. Fold lines and other creases are also possible. We cannot guarantee the additional features of the notes, such as the Treasury seals or signature combinations. These items may vary or match on the notes you receive if you buy multiples.

The 1886 Series $1 Silver Certificate featured a bust of Martha Washington through 1895 with seven series of the note issued between 1886 and the 1896 redesign. The variations throughout this time period were limited to the signature combinations on the obverse, as well as the size and ink color on the US Treasury seal. Silver Certificates were signed by the Treasurer of the United States and the Register of the Treasury. These signature combinations vary in the 1886 Series, with ink colors of red and brown featuring on large or small Treasury seals.

On the obverse of 1886 $1 Silver Certificate Martha Washington Notes is a portrait of Martha Washington. The wife of President George Washington and the first First Lady of the United States, Martha Washington was the first woman to feature on paper money and was on the $1 Silver Certificate until 1895, with a minor alteration to the reverse in 1891.

The reverse field of the 1886 $1 Silver Certificate Martha Washington Notes comes with an ornate design field with numeric “1s” on the very edges and script “ONEs” near the center.

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 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.
