About the Notes

These notes are considered both Federal Reserve Notes and Gold Certificates. Today's circulating currency notes are Federal Reserve Notes. Gold Certificates, also issued on behalf of the U.S. government were backed by and redeemable in gold coin.Fewer than 63,000 of these notes were ever printed and, according to the message on the back of the postcards produced by Binion's Casino, fewer than 200 remained in circulation. Only one other type of $10,000 note was ever produced: a Large Sized Legal Tender Note from the 1800s.

All such specimens have been redeemed; none are outstanding in private hands.Currency GradingThe notes from this Binion Collection have been certified, protected and graded by an independent grading service. The tamper resistant holders provide security and declare the authenticity of the notes.Grading is relatively new to the rare currency market. The two largest coin authentication services recently started grading paper money. One service selected Goldline's Binion Horseshoe notes to be their first notes graded. Should grading affect the rare paper currency market similarly to the rare coin market, increased demand should lead to sharply higher prices in the years ahead.About GoldlineGoldline has been in business since 1960.

Its parent company, A-Mark Financial Corporation, is currently ranked the 65th largest privately held company in the U.S. according to Forbes. Goldline deals in both precious metals and rare collectible coins and currency. Goldline also handled the silver dollars owned by Ted Binion, the son of Horseshoe Casino founder Benny Binion. Goldline currently offers free Precious Metal Investor Kits to anyone who calls 1-800-827-4653.
