Each note contains 1/1000th Troy oz of 24-karat gold.


Goldbacks are the smallest form of usable gold in the world with just 1/1000th Troy oz of 24-karat gold content. These notes are formed using proprietary processes that layer thin amounts of gold together in polymer sheets. Fans of spendable gold have another new option. It is important to note that Goldback Gold Notes are not legal tender. Instead, these are a form of voluntary currency that can be used with any vendor willing to accept gold for payment.


Prudence is the figure featured on several of the Utah Goldback Gold Notes, though her appearance is different from each note to the next. On this smallest gold note in the series, Prudence is depicted as an indigenous figure native to the Utah region of the United States of America. Prudence is a female personification of the character trait of prudence. Though the modern world has translated prudence as cautiousness, it actually refers to one’s ability to govern and discipline themselves by the use of reason.


All of the 1 Utah Goldback Gold Notes in this product listing come to you in brand-new condition and are available with protective sleeves. The notes all feature distinctive designs captured in high-quality, full-color photographs and text. The thin nature of the gold notes and manner of production results in the image being mirrored on the reverse.


Prudence is depicted on the obverse of 1 Utah Goldback Gold Notes in this weight of the series. The female figure of Prudence shown here wears the traditional dress of the native indigenous tribes originally found throughout the region in and around modern-day Utah. This includes, for example, the Ute and Paiute people. You will notice an inscription of the Latin-language “Prudentia” which led to the 14th-century Old French word “prudence.” It is broadly associated with wisdom, insight, and knowledge.
