In 1928, the United States modernized all of its circulation paper notes. The Silver Certificate, United States Note, Federal Reserve Note, and Federal Reserve Bank Notes were all downsized to the modern small-sized format. The Gold Certificate went through the same transition in 1928 and was in circulation through 1933. Today, 1928 $20 Gold Certificates are available to you online at Silver.com.

The Gold Certificate Series was issued by the United States from 1863 to 1933. The notes were, like the Silver Certificate, redeemable for the face value in coins. In the case of Gold Certificates, the bearer could redeem the note for its face value in gold coins. From 1863 to 1927, the notes were issued in a large-sized format. From 1928 to 1933, the notes were available in the modern small-sized format.

All of the 1928 $20 Gold Certificates available here come in Very Fine condition. A note in Very Fine condition has moderate signs of circulation use. The notes will have many fold lines, mild soiling, and other minor defects. You will find no serious detractions present on the notes. The notes come inside of individual currency sleeves.

The United States issued the small-sized certificates starting in 1928 with the same portraits and vignettes featured on the matching denominations in other programs. In terms of the 1928 $20 Gold Certificate, its only contemporary was the $20 Federal Reserve Note, a series with which it shared a design. The $20 Gold Certificate was issued as 1928 Series notes with signature combinations of Woods and Mellon, while the 1928A Series had the signature combinations of Woods and Mills.

President Andrew Jackson is found on the obverse side of 1928 $20 Gold Certificates. This portrait of the 7th President of the United States of America includes serial numbers and a US Treasury seal printed in yellow ink.

In the reverse field of the 1928 $20 Gold Certificate, the White House is featured. The 1928 $20 Gold Certificate had the highest printing of any denomination of Gold Certificate in the small-sized format. There was a reported figure of 67.704 million $20 Gold Certificates issued. However, many were collected by the government and destroyed after private gold ownership was outlawed in 1933.
