Federal Reserve Bank Notes were in production and circulation from 1915 to 1934. The notes were available to Americans at the same time that US Notes, Silver Certificates, Gold Certificates, National Bank Notes, and Federal Reserve Notes were all circulating in the United States. Initially, Federal Reserve Bank Notes were intended to replace the National Bank Note, but that vision did not come to fruition.
The Federal Reserve Bank Note was authorized with the Federal Reserve Act of 1913 that established the modern Federal Reserve as a central monetary authority for the nation. Along with the Federal Reserve Bank Note, the Federal Reserve Note was authorized in the Act. Today, only the Federal Reserve Note is still in production and circulation in the US.
President Andrew Jackson appears on the obverse of 1929 $20 Federal Reserve Bank Notes. This portrait of President Jackson had previously appeared on the obverse of the $10 Federal Reserve Bank Note and was moved to the $20 note to replace the image of President Grover Cleveland.
The White House in Washington D.C. is depicted in the reverse of 1929 $20 Federal Reserve Bank Notes.
