National Gold Bank Notes were National Bank Notes issued by nine national gold banks in California in the 1870s and 1880s and redeemable in gold. Printed on a yellow-tinted paper, six denominations circulated: $5, $10, $20, $50, $100, and $500.[1] A $1,000 note was designed and printed but never issued.[2] During the issuing period of national gold banks (1871–83), the U.S. Treasury issued 200,558 notes[3] totaling $3,465,240.[1] Today, National Gold Bank Notes are rare in the higher denominations (and unknown on some issuing banks) with condition generally falling in the good-to-fine range.[nb 1] Approximately 630 National Gold Bank Notes are known to exist, and roughly 20 grade above "very fine".[4]

History

The National Gold Bank Notes were authorized under the provisions of the Currency Act of July 12, 1870.[5] The series was a result of the California Gold Rush, where gold coins were preferred in commerce.[6] Ten national gold banks were charted, nine of them in California and one in Boston, Massachusetts.

The Kiddler Bank was the only bank to have $1,000 notes among others prepared, however, no notes circulated from the bank.[7]
