When it comes to the designs found on American currency, the heyday of artistry in this realm came during the final years of the 19th century and the first two decades of the 20th century. During the final years of the 1890s, in particular, there was a drive to bring real artistic creativity to the bills Americans carried in their pockets.

The Educational Series was the name for a three-bill series of Silver Certificates issued in 1896 and produced through 1898. The allegorical works of art were intended to showcase through art the impact the Industrial Revolution was having on the country as culture, the sciences, and knowledge flourished. These three designs are widely considered to be the top three in the history of American paper money.
All Educational Legal Tender Note Sets listed here are available to you for purchase across three modern US denominations. These bills are modern Federal Reserve Notes, each one with high-definition, enhanced graphics applied to the obverse to replicate the Educational Series of Silver Certificates. The denominations include the modern $1, $2, and $5 US Federal Reserve Notes. The allegorical designs have been applied to the obverse of the corresponding bill from the original Silver Certificate Series.
Each one of the Educational Legal Tender Notes listed here comes with its own bi-fold presentation folio. The folio holds the bill on the right-hand side with an individual Certificate of Authenticity on the left-hand side.
On the obverse of each bill in the Educational Legal Tender Note Set is a different allegorical interpretation from the original Silver Certificate series. The $1 bill has the image of History instructing youth, while the $2 bill features Science introducing steam and electricity to Commerce and Manufacture. The $5 bill depicts Electricity providing light to the world.
The reverse of each bill is likewise different based on the denomination. The $1 bill features its iconic combination of the Great Seal of the United States and the all-seeing eye. The $2 bill bears John Trumbull’s 1818 painting of the signing of the Declaration of Independence. On the $5 bill, the Lincoln Memorial is featured.
