Now you can own a 1953 note featuring the last small-size $5 Silver Certificate design – identified by the gray numeral 5 to the left of Abe Lincoln’s portrait. Once redeemable for silver coins or bullion, these legendary Silver Certificates came to an end when the cost of silver rose during the 1960s.

This 1953-dated $5 Silver Certificate bears a blue seal and serial numbers, and a classic portrait of Abraham Lincoln. The back shows the Lincoln Memorial. Carefully preserved in Choice Crisp Uncirculated condition for over 50 years, this note is a major piece of America’s numismatic history. Most were redeemed and destroyed long ago and few exist for collectors, so order your heirloom-quality note today!
