The 25 Nevada Goldback Gold Note includes 1/40th ounce of pure gold. But for fans of the Goldbacks by Aurum, the value of these gold notes extend far beyond their physical gold content.
Goldbacks can be used as an alternative form of currency at some establishments. Additionally, gold collectors can use the small gold contents of these Goldack notes to expand their collection without breaking the bank.
This denomination of the Aurum Nevada Goldback series is one of the most popular that we offer. At 1/40th of an ounce, the 25 Goldback denomination contains a reasonable amount of gold while offering the same functionality of the other, smaller denominations we offer. The 25 denomination also features the first depiction of the virtue of Fortitude in the Aurum Goldback series.
She is flanked by several additional images meant to symbolize how fortitude helps us to triumph over vice and obtain true virtue.
- 1/40th ounce of pure gold.
- Depiction: The Virtue Fortitude, in the form of Greek Goddess Nike.
- Usable to pay debts at multiple establishments in Nevada.
- Shipped with great care in a currency sleeve and bubble mailer.
Fortitude is one virtue which seems almost indispensable from the identity of the state of Nevada. Born out of the Wild Wild West, the state has forged an identity of fortitude in the face of a number of obstacles. The state’s very landscape is a strong force that encourages fortitude in Nevada’s cities and among its citizens. This landscape makes a hefty appearance on this Goldback design.
Imagery of the Nevada desert, including its trees, canyons, and cacti, are juxtaposed with beautiful renditions of Nevada cultural landmarks like Caesar’s Palace.
The imagery featured on this Goldback strikes at a core quality associated with Nevada. But even collectors outside of the state are sure to admire the intricacy of the designs, as well as the beauty depicted in the vignettes of the rugged Nevadan wilderness. Many Goldback collectors will want to combine this piece with the other four denominations in the Nevada series.
Together, the collection paints a more comprehensive picture of the state of Nevada; four other virtues are featured on these additional denominations, including Justice, Wisdom, Charity, and Liberty.
But even when separated from the larger collection, there’s a reason the 25 denomination sells so well. 1/40th of an ounce of gold is a great denominational value for many collectors. It doesn’t exactly break the bank, but can also be liquidated easily in case the collector needs to make some extra cash. While it might be hard to substantially expand your collection using denominations of 1/1000th ounce of gold each, the 25 denomination packs a reasonable amount of gold into each note, making it easier to amass value without buying too many notes at once.
The rugged adventures associated with the Wild Wild West is on full display with this 25 Nevada Goldback Aurum Gold Note.
Minted by Aurum, the 1/40th ounce gold note retains both practical and collectable value, all while giving collectors an excellent conversation piece in its rich and intricate depictions of the fortitude native to Nevada.
