Silver Certificates

Silver certificates were issued by the United States as early as 1878, as part of its circulation of paper money. They were intended to be redeemable for their worth in silver dollar coins, but since 1968 have only been redeemable in Federal Reserve Notes. Large size silver certificates were issued from 1878-1923, while small size silver certificates were issued from 1928-1964.
