The 1886 $5 Silver Certificate is mostly frequently called a “Morgan Back.” This nickname comes from the fact that there are five Morgan Silver Dollars pictured on the reverse of the bill. Paper money that also incorporates coins have the highest appeal to all collectors.
Ulysses S. Grant is featured on the 1886 $5 Silver Certificate. Most associate Grant with the $50 bill. However, he didn’t appear on that denomination until 1913 Gold Certificates were issued. The 1886 $5 bill is important because it is known as a one-year design type, using the Morgan Dollars.
That popular reverse image with the Morgan Dollar coin vignette was never used again. The artists of the Merrick Mint have used an advanced technology over this modern uncirculated United States $5 bill, enhancing it with images from the 1886 $5 Silver Certificate “Morgan Silver Dollar Back” Banknote, to create this collectible work of art.
