    The largest note issued in the famed Educational Series of US Silver Certificates was the $5 note. Featuring an allegory of Electricity introducing light to the world, the silver certificate was one of three in the Educational Series alongside the $1 and $2 notes. Though remaining specimens of these 100-plus-year-old paper notes are rare today, you can still own these images on modern Federal Reserve Notes that have been enhanced. Right now, $5 Educational Legal Tender Notes are available to purchase online from JM Bullion.

    Each $5 Educational Legal Tender Note listed here is an authentic legal tender US note. These notes were received in uncirculated, clean, crisp condition and comes from a sealed pack of Federal Reserve Notes. The bills have been enhanced with high-definition graphics to replicate the appearance of the 1896 $5 Silver Certificate. The notes are packaged individually inside of blue presentation folios and come with a Certificate of Authenticity.

    Silver Certificates were issued by the United States from 1878 to 1964, with the final new design introduced in 1957. The 1896 Silver Certificate issue is widely considered by collectors to boast the three most beautiful paper money designs in American history. The allegories featured on the $1, $2, and $5 Silver Certificates in this issue were like pocket-sized works of art for Americans to carry around.

    On the obverse of $5 Educational Legal Tender Notes is a depiction of the female allegory of Electricity. She is depicted bringing light to the world as she holds her right hand high in the air as a blinding light emits from her hand.

    The reverse design of $5 Educational Legal Tender Notes includes a depiction of the Lincoln Memorial, the current reverse design for the US $5 bill. Modern Federal Reserve Notes come with a variety of different reverse designs, many of which originate from the early-20th century. However, the image of the Lincoln Memorial found on the reverse of modern Federal Reserve Notes was designed in 2006 and debuted that same year on the bills.

    When the United States issued the 1896 $5 Silver Certificate with the effigy of Electricity on the obverse, the reverse side depicted an effigy of President Ulysses S. Grant and Philip Sheridan, a Union Army soldier during the Civil War who eventually rose to the post of General of the Army during the administration of President Grover Cleveland.

    When will I receive my order?+

    When you will receive your order depends primarily on three factors

    1. When we receive your payment (checks and wires must be initiated/sent by you).
      • Please note that you will receive a Paid email once your payment is received.
    2. Holding period after cleared payment.
      • Depending on your payment method, we will hold the order once payment is received and cleared. The hold periods by payment method are listed in checkout and in your confirmation email. Paper checks take the longest and are held up to five business days after payment clears.
    3. Shipping method and transit time.
      • UPS 3-Day Air is the fastest and most reliable method of shipping. These are usually delivered in 1-3 business days once in transit.
      • USPS is less consistent in both transit time and tracking accuracy.

    Depending on your method of payment, it is possible to have your order shipped to an address other than your billing address. If you pay with paper check, bank wire, ACH, Ethereum, Ripple, or bitcoin, you may have your order shipped wherever you please, with two exceptionsUPS locations and mail forwarding locations.

In the unlikely event your tracking does not update by the fifteenth day, we will be allowed to initiate the claims process. Prior to that, all we can do is notify USPS of the situation.

    If your tracking stops updating, please contact us within five (5) business days of the last tracking update so our Claims Department can contact USPS.

    If my order includes an item on presale, will the in-stock items ship first?+

    Unfortunately, due to the way insurance is applied to an order, everything must ship at the same time (i.e., in-stock items must await shipment until all presale items have arrived). Your order will ship in its entirety within 24-72 hours of our receiving the presale item. An email notification will be sent when your order ships.

    All UPS shipments ship with a No Will Call restriction, meaning the package cannot be picked up from a UPS location. This is a precaution to prevent orders from being fraudulently intercepted.

    UPS will make three delivery attempts. If nobody is available at the delivery address to sign and accept delivery, the package will be returned to us.

    Where do you ship orders from?+

    All orders will ship from our warehouse in Las Vegas, Nevada. We mask our return address on all packages as to not give away the contents of the package.
