The Utah Legal Tender Act of 2011, paved the way for the Utah Goldback foil notes. Goldbacks are the first physical, fully-interchangeable, gold money of the new millennium. Designed for small transactions – Goldbacks accommodate payments wherever recognized as an authorized medium of exchange or barter. The Utah Goldbacks are available in five convenient denominations: 1, 5, 10, 25, and 50. One Goldback foil note contains between 1/1000 - 1/20 troy ounce of fine gold. Through the process of vacuum deposition within a proprietary polymer coating, the Goldback itself consists of 24-karat gold.
Contains 1/40 troy oz of .999 pure gold
Obverse design: Lady Virtue Victoria, or Victory, primarily in celebration of Women’s rights to vote. Victoria is accompanied by a child in the artwork, representative of how many of the women marched for suffrage with their children, and how teaching children truth has been a major driving force for the women of Utah.
