The Goldback is the world’s first voluntary currency to be made of a spendable, beautiful, small denomination, physical gold.
When the Utah Legal Tender Act passed in 2011, the state became the first in recent times to recognize certain forms of gold as legal tender. Gold once again established a level of official recognition as money.
Since then the technology for minting physical gold into a spendable form for small transactions has developed. The makers use cutting edge vacuum deposition technology to layer each bill with .9999 fine gold in exacting quantities. Goldback bills carry a precise amount of pure gold between layers of polyester which makes them resilient and durable.
The bill features a beautiful image of Caritas, the Virtue Charity.
Goldbacks can be, and are, used for barter transactions with anyone who recognizes the value of gold.
Caritas, or Charity, is the Virtue beautifully featured on Nevada’s 1 Goldback Denomination. This is her 1st appearance on a Goldback Design, and is notably patterned after a depiction of Mary, the mother of Jesus, in St. Augustine’s Catholic Church in Austin, Nevada.
Catholicism is Nevada’s most dominant religion and St. Augustine’s is the oldest Catholic Church building in the state.
Like all Goldback designs, the art contains many levels of symbolism. Some major symbols of Charity featured include: the Sierra Nevada Lily, which is in the container below Mary’s feet to the right; the Mary Magdalene Rose, in the container on the left; cherubs crowning Mary and Burning Hearts to either side of her; Charity’s lit candle in her hand, and Nevada’s sun, rising over the mountains seen through the window behind her.
Additionally, the window, the candlestick in the right corner of the window sill and the columns on each side of the design, are each inspired from St. Mary of the Mountains Catholic Cathedral in Virginia City, (now, Saint Mary in the Mountains Catholic Church & Museum), which was also an inspiration for this artwork.
The window below Mary’s dress hides the word “Love”, the symbol of a square, a compass, a wagon wheel, and rosary beads. The viewer will also note the ash tree, symbolizing marriage and Las Vegas’s status as the marriage capital of the world; and a family of ring-necked pheasants, which showcase the selfless acts of nurture and protecting their family and young.

Been looking at these for a while and finally decided to order some. They really do have wonderful artwork on them and are very eye catching. Naturally the main draw is that these are real, physical gold in a unique form that makes them easy to store and, eventually, easy to use for payment/barter. Despite living in Florida I bought some with the understanding that anyone who knows the value of gold, likes having physical gold and understands what the goldback is would be happy to take them. They also seem like a more sensible and understandable bulwark against the oncoming federal CBDCs. With just a slight explanation, anyone who has ever used a dollar can understand how to use a goldback, and that alone makes these things invaluable. Shipping was quick and everything was pretty well packaged. Will continue to purchase more for potential use in trade, while also buying rounds/bars for long term storage. If your state hasn't yet accepted the goldback as an alternate currency, take the bull buy the horns and find out how you can get things moving.

Not to mention the actual GOLD CONTENT. You can just tell when you look and feel them that these are real GOLD bills. The Goldbacks are a great way to have real GOLD money available for barter, trade etc. Thank you! JD Spokane, Wa. USA

I have just started my journey to collecting gold and silver. I must say the Gold Backs Pictures do them absolutely no justice. They are ten fold better then the pics could ever make out. I got some as gifts for holidays next year. But i will be making whole sets out of these. I can see them being a desired item for any collector of fine gold. Very pleased and will be ordering several other items.
