silver certificate
A form of paper currency that was issued by the United States as early as 1878 that represented a certain amount of silver payable upon demand without the need for the holder to take physical possession of the metal. Like the U.S. dollars traded in the forex market, U.S. silver certificates can still be used as legal tender in the amount of their face value, but they are no longer redeemable in silver Bullion.
