What makes gold certificates so attractive is the story they have. Back in the late 1800s and early 1900s you could bring this bill to a local bank and trade it in for an equal value of gold. The ability to trade a piece of paper for a gold coin had a lot of appeal to many people during the time. A lot of these bills were redeemed and destroyed, making some types very difficult to get your hands on.
