When was the last US silver certificate issued?
The last silver certificates were $1 notes bearing the date and series 1957 B. Despite the date, they were actually issued until March 25, 1964 and bear the signature of C. Douglas Dillon.
Because of the rising price of silver, starting in 1963 dollar bills were issued as Federal Reserve Notes that did not require 1-for-1 backing with precious metal. The two series were briefly co-issued during that year.
Silver certificates are no longer redeemable for silver metal, and are treated exactly the same as Federal Reserve Notes.
No such (US) bill exists. Silver certificates were last issued in 1964, and the $500 bill was last issued with the series of 1934A. Furthermore, the highest denomination silver certificate issued was $10, higher denomination certificates were either United States Notes, Federal Reserve Notes or Gold Certificates.
The US issued both $5 and $10 silver certificates with that date. Please make sure your bill has a blue seal and the words Silver Certificate across the top, then check one of these questions: "What is the value of a 1953 A US 5 dollar silver certificate?" "What is the value of a 1953 A US 10 dollar silver certificate?"
The US issued both $5 and $10 silver certificates with that date. Please make sure your bill has a blue seal and the words Silver Certificate across the top, then check one of these questions: "What is the value of a 1953 US 5 dollar silver certificate?" "What is the value of a 1953 US 10 dollar silver certificate?"
The term is "silver certificate", and more information is needed. Please post a new question with the bill's date and a description of the images on it. In any case, make sure that what you have really is a $2 silver certificate, because the last such bills issued by the government were dated 1899. All federally-issued $2 bills printed after that were US Notes or Federal Reserve Notes.
More information is needed because blue-seal silver certificates were issued for many decades and in different denominations. Please check your bill's date and denomination, then look for questions in the form ""What is the value of a [date] US [denomination] dollar silver certificate?"; e.g. "What is the value of a 1953 US 10 dollar silver certificate?"
Please don't assume that every old bill must be a silver certificate. The bill's red ink as well as the banner across the top of its front side indicate that it's a United States Note rather than a silver certificate. (In fact, the last $2 SC's were issued in 1899.) Please see the Related Question for more information.
Please check the face of your bill. It's a Federal Reserve Note, not a silver certificate, and is only worth $1. The last American silver certificates were printed in the 1957 series and are identifiable by their blue seals. All $1 bills dated 1963 or later were issued as Federal Reserve Notes and have the familiar green seal.
The US printed $1, $2 and $5 silver certificates dated 1899. Please see the questions "What is the value of an 1899 US [value] dollar silver certificate?" for more information, for 1, 2 or 5. 1899 was the last year $2 bills were printed as silver certificates. Most were issued as United States Notes until 1963, and as Federal Reserve Notes after that starting in 1976. $1 and $5 silver certificates (as well as $10)…
Please post more information to help ID your bill. Specifically, what is its date? If it has a Treasury seal, what color is the seal's ink? If it's not a Federal bill, what bank issued it? Also make sure that the bill actually IS a $100.00 silver certificate. The last of these were printed in the 1891 series. Later bills may be Federal Reserve Notes, US Notes, Gold Certificates, and so on but not silver…
Yes, but they were only issued during the years 1886 to 1899. All are collectors' items with values ranging from $350 to $4500 (as of 06/2013) depending on their date and condition. Many people erroneously believe that because a US bill is old, it's automatically a silver certificate. In fact, silver certificates only made up a small portion of the various kinds of bills issued over the years. Starting in 1928 when current bill sizes…
It may be a privately-issued item but it's definitely not a genuine US bill. The last US silver certificates of any denomination were dated 1957, and no $500 silver certificates have been printed since the 1890s. Please post a new, separate question with more information that might help to ID the item.
Silver Certificates were issued in various years through different series, from 1878 to 1963, although the last series bore the date 1957. At various times during the 19th century, silver certificates were issued in every denomination from $1 to $1000. That range was reduced to $1, $5, and $10 during the first part of the 20th century. $5 and $10 denominations were discontinued with the 1953 series, and $1 silver certificates were discontinued with the…
Please don't assume that every old bill must be a silver certificate. In fact the last US $2 silver certificates were dated 1899. The red ink and banner across the top of your bill indicate that it's a United States Note, a form of currency issued directly by the federal government rather than through the Federal Reserve System. Please see the question "What is the value of a 1928 US 2 dollar bill?" for more…
