What would you like to do?
The U.S. has not printed any $20 silver certificates since 1891. What you are describing sounds like a private issue. VERY few of these items ever end up being worth as much as they originally cost - there's usually little or no aftermarket demand for them.

Answer AFAIK there were no silver certificates issued bearing the 1890 date. Could you please provide more information including a brief description of th…e note?
Please post a new question and include the series date and condition of the bill.
Answer The U.S. did not issue silver certificates with that denomination in 1934. For values of 1934 Federal Reserve Notes visit: http://www.uscurrencyauctions.com…/$20notes.htm

??? Please post a more thoroughly-worded question. Include the bill's dates and whether there is a small letter next to the date. You don't have to copy the serial num…ber, though.
There were no $20 silver certificates printed after 1886. If you have a brown-seal National Currency Note, possible values are: Dallas bank - $40.-$65. San Francisc…o - $40.-$125 All others- $25.-$35.
Not enough details. Please post a new question with the bill's date, seal color, and whether there is a small letter next to the date.
It's not a silver certificate, it's a Federal Reserve note. The last $20 silver certificates were printed in the 1890s. Your bill is worth $22.-$45.depending on how wo…rn it is, unless the Federal Reserve bank is Kansas City. In that case the value is $45-$90.
$20 SCs were printed with the following dates: 1878, 1880, 1886, and 1891. Different seal colors and layouts were used within those series. The US discontinued denominations… above $10 before the end of the 19th century so large denomination silver certificates are relatively uncommon. For example, the lowest-value $20 SC is the 1886 issue with a small red seal which retails for at least $1000 in the lowest collectible grade, while others retail for well into 5 digits.
T he last silver certificates were worth $1 and dated 1957. If you have a Federal Reserve Note with that date, it's worth about$22 in circulated condition. A dealer will pay …you face value.
The FACE value of these bills is $1 but their collector value varies considerably. For example, circulated 1957 / 57A / 57B silver certificates and some later-series 1935 …bills are quite common among collectors and sell for only 25 to 50 cents extra. Others, such as bills specially printed for use in Hawaii and North Africa during WWII, and bills dated 1934 and earlier, can be worth a lot more. If you have questions about a specific date, check to see if there's a small "series letter" next to the date, then check for questions in the form "What is the value of a [date] [letter] US [value] silver certificate?", e.g. "What is the value of a 1953 A US 10 dollar silver certificate?
They're no longer available from banks as ordinary currency, but you should have no trouble purchasing one from a collector or dealer. Bills from the 1934 and 1953 series …were printed in large numbers and remain reasonably priced; depending on the exact date and series letter you should be able to find a nice one in the $10 to $12 range.
Yes, the US never printed a small sized (1928 and latter) silver certificate. In fact, all 1950-series $20 bills were issued as familiar green-seal Federal Reserve Notes.
Up to 1964 you could get a silver dollar for it More Silver certificates were printed from the Civil War till the mid-1960s, although the last ones were dated 1957. Eac…h dollar's worth of silver certificates in circulation had to be backed by an equal amount of silver on deposit with the Treasury. The price of silver was controlled by the government so it kept the currency's value stable but it also severely limited the government's ability to react to economic up- and down-turns. By the early 1960s industrial demand for silver had skyrocketed and many governments, not just in the US, were forced to deregulate its price. Because its value was no longer fixed the Treasury had to stop redeeming silver certificates for silver coins. Starting in 1963, low-denomination silver certificates were phased out and replaced with the same Federal Reserve Notes that were issued for other, higher denominations.
Not since 1967.
