1890 $1,000 Grand Watermelon Note Commemorative Coin Tribute
The most valuable Treasury Notes in American history was the $1,000 1890 Series Treasury Note that featured General George Meade and was nicknamed the Grand Watermelon because the denomination "1,000" on the reverse was so intricately scribed that it resembled a watermelon. First issued in 1890, Treasury Notes were large pieces of paper currency, offered in several denominations that represented an equal amount of silver. The largest denomination was the $1,000 Treasury Note that featured General George Meade on the obverse.
Due to its high value, a relatively low number were printed - and of those, only a very few remain. In January 2014, one of these incredibly rare notes sold for a record $3,290,000!
Luxuriously layered in 24k gold, this brilliant commemorative coin features a full color reproduction of the 1890 Series $1,000 Treasury Note. Framing the photo realistic inset is a highly detailed engraving of General George Meade just as it is found on the obverse of the original banknote.
