The official website for the Aurum Goldback explains that the unique alternative gold currency “solves a 2,600 year old problem.” At its core, the Goldback provides a simple solution to one of the biggest issues facing bullion use in everyday life.
Gold bullion products are traditionally sold in increments of grams, Troy Ounces, or even kilos. Very few gold products are marketed in extremely small increments. This makes it difficult– or perhaps even impossible– for believers in the power of gold to spend their bullion in exchange for goods and services.
Hero Bullion offers the full New Hampshire Goldback Aurum Gold Note series to its customers. The 5 New Hampshire Goldback Note is usable currency at many establishments in New Hampshire, as well as Nevada and Utah. The result? A growing economy that uses and normalizes an alternative gold currency.
Each Goldback is made with 1/1000 Troy Ounces of .9999 pure gold, meaning that this gold note includes 1/200th of an ounce of extremely fine gold bullion. Like all Goldbacks in this series, the 5 New Hampshire Goldback Note depicts a feminine representation of a virtue.
This virtue is Veritas, also known as Truth. The reverse of all notes in this series is a negative of the obverse design, providing an added element of security against counterfeiting efforts.
- Pure .9999 gold, 1/200 Troy Ounce.
- Obverse Depiction: Veritas stands with a hawk and a moose around her.
- Reverse-side negative security feature.
- Usable currency in three states!
The New Hampshire Aurum Gold Notes represent the third series made by Aurum and Goldback Inc. Nevada and Utah were the inaugural series, setting the standard for a design structure which has been carried over into this new selection of gold notes.
Each of the five denominational notes in the New Hampshire series celebrate a different virtue, along with key cultural and environmental landmarks native to the state. These “lady virtues” are meant to represent the core ideals of New Hampshire, as well as the American people at-large.
On this note, Veritas is depicted as a cultured, well-dressed woman. She holds a candle in her hand, which clearly pays homage to the illuminating power of the truth. This is a resounding theme in the Goldback series; symbolic imagery is frequently used to demonstrate the power and importance of key featured virtues. In front of Veritas, a hawk flies majestically. Behind her, a beautiful New Hampshire moose looks on.
The reverses of all New Hampshire Goldbacks are negative prints of the obverse. Design-wise, there’s a bit of a tradeoff here. On one hand, these designs don’t really do much to improve the overall appearance of the notes.
However, their main function is instead to make it harder to counterfeit these Goldback notes. This added security feature is another reason why Goldback, Inc. has dominated this alternative currency market for years.
Whether you’re buying it as a gift or as an investment in a brighter future for the bullion market, the 5 New Hampshire Goldback Aurum Gold Note is an excellent option.
