In 1896, the United States Treasury and the Bureau of Engraving and Printing set out to launch a new design series on the nation’s silver certificate notes. The notes of the Educational Series were available from 1896 to 1899. The obverse face of the notes depicted various neoclassical allegorical motifs, while the reverse featured two different American figures on an ornate background. In most cases, the Americans were famous individuals.
On the obverse side of the 2017 1/10 Gram Gold Aurum Educational Restrike Notes, you will find the image of various allegorical figures. Referred to broadly as History Instructing Youth, the design features an adult figure in the background considered to be Science. That figure is instructing the youth of the nation, each of which represents its own allegorical figure. These figures are considered to be Steam and Electricity being introduced to Commerce and Manufacture.
The Educational Series was widely issued in the United States from 1896 to 1899 with the denominations of $1, $2, and $5 (USD). There were plans to also issue denominations of $10, $20, $50, $100, $500, and $1,000. However, these denominations were never issued before the Bureau moved on to a new design series in 1899. Designs were developed for the $10 and $50 notes but never released.
