The Treasury Note design represented here was part of a series of representative paper currency released by the US Treasury during the 1890s. The notes were redeemable from 1890 to 1893 with two design series rollouts. The first came in 1890 with denominations of $1, $2, $5, $10, $20, $100, and $1000. The second came in 1891 and boasted all of those same denominations, with the addition of a $50 note. A $500 note was designed for the series but never released. The $1000 Treasury Note was the largest of the collection and had what became the most memorable design.

All of the 4 oz Silver 1890 $1000 Treasury Grand Watermelon Note Replica Plate Bars available through this product listing are brand new from the mint and come with protective packaging for shipping. The silver bars will arrive in individual capsules for shipping and capture every detail as first printed on the 1890 $1000 Treasury Note.

On the obverse side of the Silver 1890 $1000 Treasury Grand Watermelon Note Replica Plate Bar, you will find inscriptions of the issuing nation, the denomination, and the redeemable form of the Treasury Notes. More on that in a moment. Additionally, you will find an effigy of United States Army General George Meade.

US Treasury Notes issued in this series were redeemable, as noted in this design and the original notes, in coin. While US Silver Certificates were redeemable for silver dollars and Gold Certificates were redeemable for gold, the US Treasury Notes of this series were simply redeemable in coin. This gave the Treasury the flexibility to meet the demands of any given note holder using all silver coins, all gold coins, or a combination of the two.

The reverse face of 4 oz Silver $1000 Treasury Grand Watermelon Note Replica Plate Bars comes with the original design of the denomination. While there are various inscriptions on this face that replicate the detailed imagery of the original issue, the most important are the numbers. The zeros used to denote “1000” as the denomination were large and green in the first release, giving rise to the popular use of the term “watermelon” to refer to the zeros on the note and the note’s design as a whole.
