Introduced in 1918, the $500 Federal Reserve Note was one of the four largest denominations of Federal Reserve Notes ever issued into circulation in the United States. It debuted with the release of the 1918 Series of notes and was redesigned, together with the other 1918 Series notes, in 1934. Today, 1934 $500 Federal Reserve Notes in certified condition are available to you online at Silver.com.

Note Highlights:

  • Available to you in protective plastic sleeves from the PMG!
  • Final redesign in the $500 Federal Reserve Note Series!
  • Taken out of circulation starting in July 1969!
  • The face value of $500 (USD) is fully backed by the US government.
  • Graded Very Fine 25 by the Paper Money Guaranty.
  • On the obverse is an effigy of President William McKinley.
  • The reverse features the denomination.
  • Please keep in mind these notes could have matching district seals if you purchase multiples.

The 1934 $500 Federal Reserve Note was a paper note rarely seen by everyday Americans in the early 20th century. The larger denominations in the Federal Reserve Note series were typically used for transactions between banks and not for broader circulation in the pockets of Americans.

All of the 1934 $500 Federal Reserve Notes available here come with protective plastic sleeves and a Very Fine 25 certification from the PMG. This grade indicates a note with modest signs of handling, numerous fold lines, and the potential for mild soiling on the note. These notes have District Seals on the obverse presenting the branch bank of the Federal Reserve Bank that issued the notes into circulation. When you buy multiples, these District Seals may match on the notes you receive or could vary. Examples include seals that identify the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland, Richmond, or Atlanta.

On the obverse of 1934 $500 Federal Reserve Notes is an effigy of President William McKinley. Elected in 1896, President McKinley was the 25th President of the United States of America. The former Republican Governor of Ohio, McKinley secured a second term in office, but was assassinated in office just nine months into his second term.

The reverse side of the 1934 $500 Federal Reserve Note features a depiction of the bill’s denomination. You will find several printed notations of 500 on this side of the bill. The 1934 Series redesign of the $500 Federal Reserve Note not only replaced John Marshall on the obverse with the image of President McKinley, it also removed a more artistic vignette in favor of this simpler design.

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.
