In 1928, the government issued a new small-sized note that was more portable and designed after the familiar Federal Reserve notes of the time. These notes were ultimately confiscated upon the passing of the Gold Reserve Act, which required all gold and gold certificates to be handed over to the Treasury. This was the beginning of the country’s effort to abandon the gold standard in order to print more money and steer the nation out of the Great Depression.
