Silver Certificates

Silver certificates were made available during the U.S. circulation of paper money and were only redeemable for face value in silver dollar coins. Silver certificates were reduced in size in 1928 and available from 1928-1964. They were sold only in denominations of $1, $5, and $10. See below for some small-sized silver certificates available in the Philadelphia area.
