About the Goldback 25 Bill - New Hampshire, Fortitudine - 1/40th Troy Oz .9999 Gold-Minted Bill

The Goldback, as the world's first voluntary currency made of spendable, beautiful, small denomination physical gold, represents a groundbreaking advancement in the realm of currency. With the passing of the Utah Legal Tender Act in 2011, Utah became the first state in recent times to officially recognize certain forms of gold as legal tender, reestablishing gold's status as a recognized form of money.

Since then, significant strides have been made in the technology used to mint physical gold into a practical and usable form for small transactions. The creators of Goldback bills utilize cutting-edge vacuum deposition technology to layer each bill with precise quantities of .9999 fine gold. This meticulous process ensures that Goldback bills contain an exact amount of pure gold sandwiched between layers of polyester, resulting in resilient and durable bills.

In this series, a new design element has been introduced, shifting the written denomination from the top of the bill to the border at the bottom. Additionally, a smaller denomination number is now included in the bottom right corner, alongside the one found in the top left. This design change has been piloted in this series and has been approved for future designs, with the 2022 editions of currently printed designs adopting these modifications.

Fortitudine, or Fortitude, takes center stage in New Hampshire's 25 Goldback Denomination, marking her second appearance in a Goldback series. She is portrayed donning a military coat reminiscent of a minute-man and wearing a dress adorned with vertical red and white stripes, reminiscent of the early rebel colonists. These stripes eventually reached the United States flag, displayed horizontally. Fortitudine leans a musket over one shoulder, along with a powder horn in her opposite hand, symbolizing items captured from Fort William and Mary, as depicted in the 10 Goldback Design.

Standing beside Fortitudine is a miniature depiction of New Hampshire's renowned granite monument, proudly featuring the state's motto: "Live Free or Die." Below her, the caption "Take Courage" further reinforces the theme of resilience and bravery. At her feet, a mother and baby porcupine embody the concept of being loving and calm yet armed with quills to protect oneself when necessary.

In the background, a maple tree in early spring, complete with a tap and bucket, represents the fortitude of the tree as it endures the harsh winter months. As the temperatures warm, the tree's sap begins to flow, bringing life and vitality to the tree itself and those who depend on it. Additionally, the depiction of Mount Washington and the historic Mount Washington Hotel adds to the scenic backdrop.

These carefully chosen elements collectively exemplify why New Hampshire is often called "The Granite State." From the resilience and determination embodied by Fortitudine to the symbolism of the granite monument and the enduring spirit of the maple tree, this Goldback design encapsulates the essence of strength and perseverance associated with the state of New Hampshire.
