Widely considered to be part of the most beautiful paper money designs in American history, the Educational Series in the Silver Certificate program included redesigns on the $1, $2, and $5 notes in 1896. Only available through 1898, the designs remain highly coveted by investors and collectors well into the 21st century. Today, 1896 $1 Silver Certificate Educational Notes are available to you online from JM Bullion. On the obverse of the 1896 Silver Certificate Educational Note is a depiction of the female allegory of History instructing young pupils. The reverse side of 1896 $1 Silver Certificate Educational Notes comes with side-by-side portraits of Martha Washington and George Washington.
