    Hello everyone! Today, our 7th president would be 252 years old. So, I wanted to celebrate this event by sharing some banknotes from my collection honouring our colourful former president.

    Fun fact: Andrew Jackson was the first and only president to pay off the national debt in 1835.

    Older notes- 1934A-1977
    1934A $20, 1963A $20, and 1977 $20:

    Of course, this doesn't include every single series of $20 notes, nor are they in order. But, if you have any interesting $20 notes, post them.

    Not a 20, and this was issued before he was president, but here's another one of Jackson, showing him amongst the troops during the War of 1812.

    What I find to be hilarious is that the biggest opponent to a centralized bank is on one of the most common bills issued by our central bank. From what I've read of Andrew Jackson, he would NOT have approved or been happy with this!

    Well, Andrew Jackson is a hero, and deserves to be honoured. Occasionally, someone respects their enemy. He might not have approved, but is probably satisfied that our central bank viewed him as a formidable opponent.

    It is obvious that he was a fan of gold and silver, but it is hard to speak for someone about what they would have liked/disliked when they have been dead for 174 years.

    Which is exactly why they stuck his face on the notes... surely if Old Hickory approves of this note it MUST be valuable legal tender...

    I picked this up at a bank today. It's pretty nice and crisp for being nearly 29 years old.

    Very nice find! I had a twenty of that same series today, but, it was in terrible condition, so I spent it.



    I did get this old $20. Nicest condition 1995 I’ve seen so far.

    Spending them is an option; what I typically do with $20 and higher notes that are in poor condition is I'll trade them out at a local casino by using them at a cash dispenser for smaller bills or by inserting and cashing out at one of the slot machines. The casino accepts and dispenses old $20 and $100 notes down to at least Series 1977 (I suspect this observed cut off correlates to the addition of iron in the ink in the early 1980's). The series acceptance threshold for lower denominations remains a mystery; one time I used a torn and taped $5 1969B note without a problem.

    Anyway, that old $20 note is a good find. It has been said that this series and denomination had limited disbursement due to the release of Series 1996 notes in 1998 and that many of the Series 1995 $20 notes which were printed were never actually released.

    I can't remember who said this but I believe it was said by someone on this forum from around 10 years ago or so. If I find credible specifics at some point I will give an update.

    Ditto

    I would be so happy to learn that the look of American paper currency would change back to the way it was thirty years ago.

    I picked this up from a bank today. It reminds me of your 1995 $20 note being it's from the same block and of a similar serial span as well. It's pretty nice and crisp. It's been swiped with a counterfeit pen but these typically fade away within a few days. 1995 $20.png
