Introducing the revolutionary Goldback: the pioneering voluntary currency crafted from exquisite, small-denomination, physical gold, redefining the concept of currency itself.

With the passage of the Utah Legal Tender Act in 2011, Utah set a historic precedent by recognizing select forms of gold as legal tender, reaffirming gold's timeless status as a universal symbol of value.

Since then, advancements in minting technology have elevated the process of transforming physical gold into a practical medium for small transactions. Employing state-of-the-art vacuum deposition technology, each Goldback bill is meticulously layered with .9999 fine gold, ensconced between durable layers of polyester, ensuring both resilience and enduring beauty.

The inaugural Utah Goldback Series stands as a testament to this innovative approach. Illustrated by Cheri Jensen, a local Utah artist known for her intricate craftsmanship despite her visual impairment, the series offers a captivating journey through Utah's rich history, from its pre-settlement era to its pioneering spirit and beyond, culminating in an aspirational vision of transcendence.

At the heart of this series lies the embodiment of Libertas, the Virtue of Liberty, depicted in her perfected form, radiating divine blessings attained through the judicious application of liberty in life.

Rich with symbolism, the design features Liberty holding aloft a torch of enlightenment in her right hand, while her left hand cradles an overflowing cup symbolizing the profound connection between liberty and the divine. A sheathed sword and shield rest nearby, serving as poignant reminders of the eternal vigilance necessary to safeguard and preserve the liberties we cherish.

Flanked by a mountain lion and a lamb, Liberty symbolizes the harmony and peace that flourishes through the prudent exercise of freedom, echoing the biblical prophecy of Isaiah 11:6.

Set against the majestic backdrop of the Rocky Mountains, with the Utah state tree, the blue spruce, and the state flower, the sego lily, framing the scene, Liberty stands as a beacon of hope and progress. As the sun rises in the background, symbolizing enlightenment and divine favor, the inscription "Stand Fast in Liberty" serves as a solemn call to uphold and defend the freedoms we hold dear.

Experience the power and beauty of Liberty with Goldbacks—a currency that transcends mere transactions, embodying the enduring value of freedom and prosperity.
