Like the Silver Certificate program, the United States Gold Certificate was redeemable for its face value in gold coins. The notes were issued by the United States from 1863 until 1933 when the administration of President Franklin D. Roosevelt ended the gold standard and outlaws the private ownership of gold. From 1933 to 1964, owning these notes was actually illegal in the United States.
