$100,000 Gold Certificate 1934 Real or Fake?

By Nutmegcollector
April 10, 2010

This 100,000 Dollar Gold Certificate is the highest U. S. denomination. Only 42,000 were printed. They were used only for transactions between the Federal Reserve and the Treasury Department. These notes were never issued for public circulation. When the Government stopped using them in the early 1960s, most were destroyed.
Only a few are known to have survived. They are housed at the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco, the Bureau of Engraving and Printing, and the Smithsonian Institute.

It's illegal for a private person to own one of these notes, and none has ever been in private hands. All 42,000 were accounted for.






I've received many letters, mostly from indonesia and the Philippines, claiming they have found bundles of these notes. Some enclosed photos and even "Certificates of Authenticity". Upon close examination, the notes appear to be poor quality counterfeits. Careful reading of the wordings of these certificates turns up to be nothing more than official looking nonsense.

Fake Certificate of Authenticity

1000 Fake $100,000 Gold Certificates
Serial No. A00036000A - A00036999A













However, if you are still convinced that what you have is real, then you must turn it over to the U. S. Department of Treasury. The note, never distributed to the public, remains the property of U. S. Government. Let's assume you have one, it's considered stolen property. It's illegal for you to keep or sell it.

Where and how can one turn over this gold certificate. Please enlightened us as to the procedure and who are the proper authority.

I am Fauzy from Faith Indonesia as a financial consultant,to make it clear and you not push your self to keep that money as legal, I just want to tell if the nutmegcollector is absolutely right, the us government not open to the public, only officially legal,if you have a lots, you better give to your government in your country and let them correspondence to US Government see the link http://moneyfactory.gov/100000goldcertificate.html to make sure if Nutmegcollector is not lie to you.

Warm Regard,

R.Fauzy

kanajim said...

I have a 1934 $100,000 USD note too.I have read many replies and comments re this note. I don't have much faith into it being genuine but believe it to be one of several scams doing the rounds in Asia whereby people will sell these bits of papers for several dollars - like maybe $100 each -to naive people believing that they,the new buyer, may eventually be able to get several thousand -never $100,000 USD. Can we get a group willing to work together to supply serial numbers-mine is A00034088A

macca said...

kanajim , pls contact me ... thank !

Nutmegcollector said...

A000357004A
A000357005A
A00036000A - A00036999A (1000 note bundles in consecutive serial numbers)
A00037000A-A00037999A (1000 note bundles in consecutive serial numbers)
A00042216A

Jonathan said...

So is this not really redeemable with GOLD? This was happen during the GOLD CONFISCATION on 1933 so they issue CERTIFICATE on the bearer of the GOLD...Have you ever ask the USA about this things if its really redeemable?

email me: jocas_core62510@yahoo.com

Nutmegcollector said...

Jonathan,
What you see out there are are fake notes. I keep on telling people genuine ones do not exist in the public. It does not seem to get through.

macca said...

The way I see it $100,000 U.S. dollar found in Asia’s FAKE or not FAKE, I think no more value in U.S. government why bother retrieving it and it is not gold that can be used. I guess you better destroy it since they consider it counterfeits money and it’s illegal for you to keep or sell it.

apollodr said...

Something don't add up Tom. If a counterfeiter had been busy during the pre WWII in making these bogus bills, to what purpose did he have in mind? If it was a counterfeiter, he was very, very good. In fact the look and feel of these counterfeits can fool a banker with years of experience. Granted, it was a counterfeiter who made these fake bills. why go with all the trouble making a highly suspicious big bill? Why not 100 dollar bills or even 20 dollar bills to keep suspicions away? One other thing, the bill says it is "legal tender for all debts, public and private" signed by the treasurer of the United States - what part of this sentence says it is illegal to own one, granted it is genuine?

Nutmegcollector said...

@appolodr
I don'y think these are WWII counterfeits. I think they are more recent forgeries. They are poor quality imitations Just compare the genuine and the fake shown above. To what purpose? Maybe he hopes some one foolish enough to pay $100 for these $100,000 note and thinking it's a big bargain. By the way, there certainly are plenty $100 and $20 counterfeits around. It may be legal tender, but illegal for you to own. Why? Because it was issued only for use between government agencies, not for the public. So, if you got one, it's either stolen or fake. We know it's not stolen because every note ever issued was accounted for by serial number.

im said...

sir nutmeg, i am curious to know more about this 100k, and lots of questions to ask too.
i only know that if i have this kind of money with this gold certificates and other stuff on it ... one country cannot pay enough for this... hmmm... a life threatening treasure... :(

kwieeeee said...

Wow, it looks like everybody who "bought" these fake certificates were scammed. Some con artist made a killing. They are about as valuable as toilet paper so you could either sell it for that, keep it on your wall so you will be more careful against scams in the future, or sell it for a markup to the next idiot, or your neighbor. The reason the serial numbers are all real, is because they were all documented 80 years ago, and the numbers were all public record. Therefore it sure wouldn't be difficult to just copy those numbers onto your little fake notes.
The best bet if you got it for free is to sell it to someone else for whatever you could get for it, pass the scam along and pat yourself on the back.
If thats not possible, there is probably a reason that your life has deteriorated due to stupidity such as this. So in the case, just stick it on your wall, and punch yourself in the face.

Nutmegcollector said...

To those who insist their notes are genuine or the bank told them they are genuine, here is another solution. Why don't you deposit it to your bank account or ask the bank to exchange it for Pesos, Rupiah, Ringgit or whatever your local currency? What's the problem? They are still legal tender.
