Gold Certificates date back to 1863. These notes were redeemable in gold coin at the United States Treasury. All types of gold certificates were discontinued in 1933 when the U.S. prohibited private ownership of gold. Unlike all other types of obsolete currency, they were actually recalled and made illegal to own. The ownership ban was later lifted in 1964.
