Like any state in the United States, New Hampshire values its freedom and liberties as granted by the United States Constitution. One of the original 13 British colonies in North America, New Hampshire was the first to shake off the shackles of British control to form its own government. Still living under the motto “Live Free or Die,” New Hampshire now has a form of currency not controlled by an outside power.

The movement to produce spendable forms of gold again for Americans launched in Utah with a legal tender act that set forth guidelines for acceptable forms of gold as currency. Subsequently released for Nevada and New Hampshire, Goldback Gold Notes are voluntary local currency. Though not US legal tender, the note can be used to make purchases with any vendor that opts to accept the notes. In the case of New Hampshire Goldbacks, the notes can only be spent with New Hampshire-based entities.
All of the 25 New Hampshire Goldback Gold Notes listed here at Silver.com come in brand-new condition from the mint. You will find that gold notes are produced with thin layers of gold between two polyester sheets. While the polyester sheets offer protection, the gold bullion notes are housed in protective currency sleeves to ensure the condition of each note.
The obverse side of 25 New Hampshire Goldback Gold Notes features a revolutionary image of Fortitudine. The female personification of Fortitude, or courage, she is ready to lead the charge for freedom. Fortitude refers to the concept of courage. Often referred to as bravery or valor as well, courage is the willingness to confront uncertainty and intimidation without thought of the agony, pain, or danger involved. Here, Fortitude is wearing the coat of a Revolutionary War soldier with a long rifle in her hand. Her dress features the stripes of the American flag. She embodies the spirit of New Hampshire in its desire for freedom from Great Britain’s tyranny.
On the reverse face of 25 New Hampshire Goldbacks, you will find the mirror image of the obverse design. The gold notes are so thin that it is difficult to produce an image on one side without it appearing on the other side. There is no colorization or enhancement on this field of the gold note.
