Following the large scale success of their Utah series, Aurum is now minting a series of Goldbacks featuring the beautiful state of Nevada. Like the Utah line, it is likely that the Nevada Goldbacks by Aurum will be usable at select establishments throughout the state– and in many parts of the larger USA.
The 5 Nevada Goldback denomination lets collectors expand their stock of gold by a small amount, only 1/200th of an ounce, through the artistic and exciting design of the gold notes. Goldbacks will arrive in protective currency sleeve.
Nevada gold notes come in five denominations: 1, 5, 25, and 50. The simplicity of these denominational values is one big upside to the Goldback series. The basic 1 denomination holds exactly 1/1000th ounce of pure gold. The 5 denomination, then, contains 1/200th ounce of gold. Some investors should note the extreme level of flexibility this provides.
Instead of having to buy a gram or more of gold at a time, bullion enthusiasts can buy precisely the amount of gold they need with Goldbacks.
- 1/200th ounce of pure gold.
- Depiction: the virtue of wisdom is depicted in the form of Greek goddess Athena.
- Acceptable means of payment in several businesses.
- Shipped safely in a bubble mailer and currency sleeve to prevent wrinkles.
Like the 1 denomination, the 5 Nevada Goldback Aurum Gold Note seeks to represent a ‘virtue’ demonstrated by the great state of Nevada. Here, the focus is on wisdom, or the Virtue Sophia. The classic symbol of Athena should be a familiar sight to any collector who’s dabbled in Ancient Grecian history.
But the real beauty of this gold note’s vignette comes from the various smaller symbols which surround the focal point of Athena. A close look at this gold note will show off a number of symbols of Nevada’s statewide demonstration of wisdom and inventiveness. Libraries from the state’s universities, books from Nevadan Mark Twain, a locomotive, and other small images illustrate Nevada’s rich history of intellectual and scientific achievement.
The extensive historical references depicted on this gold note are likely to make it a fantastic addition to any collection. Bullion fans interested in the exciting history of rugged intellectual advancement in the former frontier state should get a kick out of exploring the many images that surround Lady Athena on this intricate design.
Readers should note, too, that this gold note is only one denomination of five within the Nevada Goldback series. Put together, this series paints a powerful picture of the beauty of the state and its people, while also holding lasting value for its gold composition.
Lady Athena is a classic symbol for wisdom and intellectual value. The 5 Nevada Goldback Aurum Gold Note commemorates Athena’s presence in Nevada, a state with an exceptional history of inventions, scientific advancement, and intellectual achievement. Collectors with this gold note in their reserve are likely to value the piece, both for its beautiful and intricate design and for its pragmatic use as an alternative currency in parts of Nevada.

It’s a beautiful gold note, but mine came bent up, they almost rolled up like a scroll that hadn’t been opened in a hundred years. I’ve since put some heavy books on top of them for over a week and they still want roll up, but not as bad as they were when I first received them. I guess I’ll have to leave them under some heavy weights for a long time. Hopefully they’ll straighten out. I wish I could send a photo just imagine them lookin like this ( ( ( .
Kinda bummed, but they sure a pretty.
