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.

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.
