What are goldbacks?

According to the inventors of goldbacks, they are: 

the world’s first physical, interchangeable, gold money, that is designed to accommodate even small transactions. 

Honestly, that definition doesn’t do them justice. Here at BullionMax, we think goldbacks are:

the newest and most exciting way to acquire real, physical gold in a form that’s convenient for everyday use. 

Here’s how it works…

The fine folks at Valaurum figured out a way to apply a microscopic, like atomic quantity of gold evenly and reliably onto transparent polymer. By “reliably,” I mean Valaurum can measure as little as $3 worth of gold (at today’s prices, that’s 0.001620 troy oz or 0.05 grams of gold – like I said, almost atomic). They use thin-film technologies similar to those used in semiconductor manufacture. In some of their projects, they actually apply gold atom-by-atom as a three-dimensional structure. Wow.

This incredibly fine gold film is applied to a thin, transparent and tough polymer, then layered over with another sheet of polymer. Goldbacks have decorated obverse/front sides, while their backs show a sort of photo-negative of the design on the front. The result is a surprisingly tough and durable note, almost paper-thin, containing a precisely-measured quantity of physical, 0.9999 fine gold. Not only is this physical gold, it’s recoverable as well, meaning you can melt down your goldbacks 

Goldbacks are denominated in 1/1000th troy oz of gold (so this 1 Goldback has one milli-ounce, or 1/1000th troy oz, of physical gold at its core – and the largest notes, the 50s, contain 50/1000th troy oz each). They’re currently produced in five denominations: 1, 5, 10, 25 and 50. It’s easy to tell them apart – the bigger-denomination notes are, well, bigger. Like so:

Goldbacks are the first-ever actually usable gold money we know of. The developers did a study in Utah and found that over 50% of small businesses were delighted to be paid in goldbacks rather than an equivalent amount of vastly less-awesome paper money. 

So, what are goldbacks?

  • Sound money backed by their intrinsic value of gold
  • Small enough to use for everyday transactions
  • Convenient to carry, barter and actually use 
  • Not burdened with an absurdly-low “face value” 

Friends, if sound money has a future, this could very well be it.

Goldbacks for sale

Since their launch, it’s been tough to find goldbacks for sale. Even though they aren’t considered legal tender at the federal level, they’re legal to own everywhere. At the moment, we have a limited quantity of goldbacks for sale – if you see one you like, I strongly encourage you to buy ‘em now. They won’t last long!

Utah goldback notes

Utah was the first state to get its very own goldback notes. Interestingly, goldbacks are technically considered to be “specie legal tender” in Utah. In other words, they’re a legit and legal form of money in Utah. 

Utah was where the goldback was born. As the goldback team tells us:

The State of Utah was done first in the second half of 2019, Utah was chosen in large part due to the passage of the Utah Legal Tender Act in 2011 but also because Utah is Goldback’s home state.

Utah goldback notes have the following designs (see image above): 

  • 1 - Prudentiae (Prudence)
  • 5 - Veritas (Truth)
  • 10 - Justitia (Justice)
  • 25 - Victoria (Victory)
  • 50 - Libertas (Liberty)

Nevada goldback notes

Nevada goldback notes were the second series produced. According to the team:

One of the early investors in Goldback was Mark Voelker. He advocated strongly for Nevada to be the second series and he staked some of his own money on the project. The people of Nevada can thank him for getting this series going.

Nevada goldback notes have the following designs:

  • 1 - Caritas (Charity)
  • 5 - Sophia (Wisdom)
  • 10 - Justitia (Justice)
  • 25 - Fortitudine (Fortitude)
  • 50 - Libertas (Liberty)

New Hampshire goldback currency

Here’s what the goldback team has to say about the New Hampshire series:

It may be a wonder to some that New Hampshire wasn’t the first State with their own Goldback. A group of Liberterians that has decided to stay anonymous with the Free State Project helped kickstart this series. This series has a Revolutionary War theme that we are particularly proud of. New Hampshire was released in 2021 but it was being produced in 2020 so there are Goldbacks in this series with the 2020 date.

The American Revolutionary-era inspired artwork is as follows:

  • 1 - Gratia (Grace)
  • 5 - Veritas (Truth)
  • 10 - Prospicientia (Foresight)
  • 25 - Fortitudine (Fortitude)
  • 50 - Libertas (Liberty)
