$20 Gold Certificate
- (GOLD CERTIFICATES) With the increase of gold in America partially brought on by the rush of the mid 1800's, this metal became a prevalent asset for exchange.
- (GOLD CERTIFICATES) Written confirmation of ownership of gold without necessarily having to take physical delivery of the metal.
- A gold certificate in general is a certificate of ownership that gold owners hold instead of storing the actual gold. It has both a historic meaning as a US paper currency (1882–1933) and a current meaning as a way to invest in gold.
