The 1899 redesign of the $1 US Silver Certificate saw one of the three most-beautiful designs in the history of American paper currency depart the note. However, it was replaced by a design that has gone down in history as not only one of the longest-lived on Silver Certificates, but also one of the more beloved. While 1899 Black Eagle Silver Certificates are hard-to-come-by today, the Merrick Mint has used advanced technology to recreate the graphics from that note over the images of the modern US $1 bill. The Black Eagle design was also known as the Dual Presidents for its use of two presidential effigies along with the Black Eagle on the obverse. Right now, 1899 $1 Black Eagle Dual Presidents Legal Tender Notes are available to purchase online at Silver.com.

Note Highlights:

  • Ships to you in a blue presentation folio with a Certificate of Authenticity included!
  • Duplicates the Black Eagle design from the 1899 $1 Silver Certificate!
  • Authentic US legal tender notes!
  • High-definition graphics on the obverse side!
  • Bears a face value of $1 (USD) backed by the federal government.
  • A bald eagle with the American flag features alongside effigies of President Lincoln and President Grant on the obverse.
  • The all-seeing eye and Great Seal of the United States are on the reverse.

Each 1899 $1 Black Eagle Dual Presidents Legal Tender Note listed here at Silver.com comes with its own packaging. The notes are housed inside of blue presentation folios and come with a Certificate of Authenticity. The famous Black Eagle design on the obverse has been produced on the note using proprietary, high-definition processes that recreate the impressive visuals from the historic Silver Certificate. Each one of these $1 bills is an uncirculated Federal Reserve Note that is clean and crisp, and comes straight from a sealed pack of bills from the Federal Reserve. These are modern $1 US bills with the 1899 Black Eagle design included on the obverse for the purposes of generating a collectible work of art for monetary enthusiasts.

The 1899 $1 Black Eagle Silver Certificate replaced the $1 Silver Certificate from the Educational Series. The latter had run for just over two years in production from 1896 until its replacement in 1899 with the Black Eagle design. The Black Eagle design was not only one of the longest-lived Silver Certificate designs, in production until 1922, it was also one of the last forms of large-sized paper currency in the United States.

A bald eagle features at the center of the 1899 $1 Black Eagle Dual Presidents Legal Tender Notes. The design is known as the Black Eagle because the design featured a deep-black tone to the American bald eagle. As the bird clutches an American flag on a small flagpole, the busts of President Abraham Lincoln and President Ulysses S. Grant feature beneath. The 1899 $1 Silver Certificate remains the only paper currency issued in the United States with the busts of two former presidents on the same face of the bill.

For the reverse design of 1899 $1 Black Eagle Dual Presidents Legal Tender Notes, the modern $1 bill imagery is present. Here, you will find the all-seeing eye atop a pyramid on the left and the Great Seal of the United States on the right.

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.
