Silver certificates offer fans of paper money a unique opportunity to own a truly historical form of currency. These notes were issued by the United States between 1878 and 1964 and could be exchanged for their physical silver equivalent by banks throughout the country. These special North Africa notes were issued in 1942 for service members during World War II. Their novel yellow seals meant that they could be devalued if they came under the possession of the enemy. Right now, 1934a $5 Silver Certificate North Africa Notes in Very Fine condition are available to purchase online at Silver.com.

  • Delivered to you in a plastic currency sleeve!

  • Arrives in Very Fine condition!
  • Includes distinctive yellow Treasury seal.

These 1934a Silver Certificate North Africa Notes can be purchased with the click of a mouse and delivered directly to your door. These notes are genuine legal tender and prior to 1971 were backed in silver by the United States government. Each one is in Very Fine condition, meaning flaws such as light soiling and fold marks will be evident upon inspection. For protective purposes, we ship each note inside a plastic currency sleeve.

When the United States entered World War II, its Army Chief of Staff George Marshall wanted to engage head-on with the Western European theatre. However, President Roosevelt was more comfortable with the idea of starting off in Northern Africa, where he could assist the British and help set their alliance in stone. Further, the easier task of invading North Africa would serve as a good trial run for the country’s untested military, after which they could more clearly assess their ability to overthrow the Nazi regime. The invasion, known as operation torch, proved successful, and in a mere 8 days the Allied Forces occupied Casablanca, Oran, and Algiers.

The obverse of $5 Silver Certificate North Africa Notes contains a portrait of Abraham Lincoln. Lincoln was introduced on the small-size $5 notes in 1928 and has been present on them ever since. To the right of the portrait, you will see the Treasury seal in yellow ink, and on both sides you will see the serial number in blue ink. Also shown are the words Five Dollars in Silver Payable to the Bearer on Demand.

On the reverse side of 1934a $5 North Africa Notes there is a vignette of the Lincoln Memorial. The groundwork for this historic structure was laid in 1914, and in 1922 it was completed and dedicated before a crowd of over 50,000 on Memorial Day weekend.

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.
