Summary[edit]

Description
English: $5 Silver Certificate, Series of 1896 (Fr. Ref#270). Engraved signatures of Lyons (Register of the Treasury) and Roberts (Treasurer of the United States).
The Series of 1896 United States Silver Certificates (issued in $1, $2, and $5 denominations) marked a significant departure from any previous design of U.S. paper currency. All three denominations depict neoclassical allegorical vignettes. The 1896 Silver certificates are often referred to as the Educational Series because of the name given to the $1 denomination (History Instructing Youth).
