There’s a reason the Aurum’s Goldbacks are so quickly becoming a staple of the collections of many bullion enthusiasts. In addition to the functional value of the gold notes, which are accepted at a number of establishments in Utah and Nevada, Goldbacks allow collectors to reap the benefits of owning highly-liquid small amounts of gold at a time. Many customers also praise the unique design of the notes, which evoke a sense of history with their intricate vignettes.
The concept of a Goldback is nothing new. Collectors have been using Goldbacks as a way to invest in small amounts of useful gold for years. But motivations for collecting Goldbacks can vary. Some bullion fans see Aurum’s Goldbacks as a way to engage in a kind of commerce immune to the influence of the banking and finance sector.
Each Goldback’s value is tied directly to the value of gold itself, meaning that it holds value outside of the value given to ‘legal tender.’ But collectors who just want to expand their stock of gold are also turning to Goldbacks as a viable investment opportunity.
Because each Goldback includes just 1/1000th of an ounce of gold, these unique notes make it possible to invest in gold without breaking the bank. Smaller amounts of gold are also often much easier to liquidate than larger pieces, making it easier for collectors to cash-out without parting with large portions of their collections at a time.
- 1/1000th ounce of pure gold.
- Depiction: a vignette featuring symbolism for caritas, the Catholic virtue of charity.
- Accepted currency at multiple establishments in Utah/Nevada.
- Shipped in a currency sleeve within bubble mailer to ensure no damage or blemishes.
The imagery featured on this gold note is truly something special. As a standalone piece, this note is complete with a depiction of Caritas herself. She is surrounded by symbolic images close to the heart of those of the Catholic faith, including cherubs, an ash tree, and more.
But collectors should also view this piece as a part of the larger collection of Nevada Goldbacks by Aurum. The five different Goldback denominations come together to paint a beautiful picture of faith and love in the state of Nevada. Sophia, Justitia, Fortitudine, and Libertas are the key virtues featured on the other denominations.
Fans of the Nevada series are quick to point out that the individual Goldback designs become even more valuable when placed in-conversation with the other denominations of their series. The Nevada Goldback series of gold notes isn’t just for those collectors who value the practical applications allowed by Goldbacks in many parts of the country.
Even those outside of the Catholic faith can appreciate the beautiful historical undertones of the designs, which harken back to age-old virtues valued by religions and faiths all over the world. The 1 Nevada Goldback Gold Note gives investors the opportunity to hold a small amount of pure gold fitted onto a beautiful scene of Caritas and her beauty.

Beautiful and affordable on a small budget. It may not be cost effective to stack these but. They are nice enough to merit having them in a collection.
