History of 1905 $20 Gold Certificates
Large Size Gold Certificate bills, like the $20 seen above, are extremely popular among collectors today. This large size only lasted until the early 1900s. Many collectors call any large size bill a “horse blanket” note because its large enough to throw over the back of a horse. Metaphorically speaking, of course. Today’s small size banknotes were quickly introduced into circulation as it saved costs on ink, paper, and was easier to carry around.
This 1905 $20 Gold Certificate is commonly known as a “Technicolor” banknote by many collectors today. This very similar print design was also issued for two other years: 1906 and 1922. The only difference being, the 1905 bill has much more color than the later dates. Of the 1905 Gold Certificate, 1906, and 1922 if you had identical condition examples of each, the 1905 Gold Certificate would almost always be worth more money in the market.
