    Iconic American Design - The $20 "Technicolor" Gold Certificate

    Fr. 1180 $20 1905 Gold Certificate PMG Superb Gem Unc 67 EPQ.
    Numismatic art on United States currency took major steps forward around the turn of the 20th Century. The Educational Series notes, Bison Legal Tenders, and the Onepapa Silver Certificates are regarded as a few of the most popular designs ever printed. Included in that numismatic Renaissance is the Series 1905 $20 Gold Certificates. The design followed a trend towards making the presidential portrait a more focal part of the layout, but it was the graduated hues of yellow and orange in the open parts areas of the design that made this design one of the top 10 according to 100 Greatest American Notes. The color is sometimes so captivating, especially in this grade, that the finer details of the scroll work and other design elements around the edges goes underappreciated. The Great Seal of the United States is surrounded by TWENTY DOLLARS on back.
