ON GOLD CERTIFICATES

Last week Dick Hanscom asked about a reference to gold certificates
in the 2004 Annual Report of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York.

An E-Sylum reader writes: "The Series 1934 Gold Certificates were
issued only for internal use by the Treasury and the Federal Reserve
Banks.  As I recall, these certificates were only issued in higher
denominations ($100 and up, I believe).  One interesting feature of
the 1934 Series of gold Certificates is that it contains a $100,000
note.  This denomination was never issued in any other series or type
of US Currency.  The only other Treasury obligations that bore this
denomination were Bonds."
